A few mixed martial artists have already parlayed their MMA celebrity into movie careers, including Randy Couture, Gina Carano, Ronda Rousey, & Cung Le. UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones hopes to some day to the same, and do it just like Duane 'The Rock' Johnson did after a successful WWE career:

"I'd like to model my acting career on Dwayne Johnson, the way he came out of [WWE] and started off tough guy roles and then moved over to doing 'Tooth Fairy,'" the 24-year-old Jones told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) during an appearance at the UFC's "World Tour" in Los Angeles. "That's when you really saw that he could act, and he's the one I admire and respect a lot, so I know I'd love to model my acting career after (him)."

"As an entertainer, I think acting is one of the highest levels you can get, and right now, I'm doing pretty well in my field, which is the martial arts world. To branch out a little bit and get my feet wet there and maybe prepare myself for a career after this career, I think it's all part of the plan."

Did he really say that The Tooth Fairy is the point in which the Rock's acting ability became apparent? Jesus Christ. GL with your acting career Bones. Nevermind that your personality is non-existent.

He probably should have used Oleg or something because its going to be hard modeling your career off a guy who was already an actor (in WWE) before he was doing it on the silver screen.

If theres anyone in MMA whos charisma and entertainer potential reminds me of The Rock, it sure as fuck isnt Jones. Hes more like Lance Storm or something in that regard. In other words, Jones would be about as good an actor as Steven Seagal. And would be about as good in movies as Hulk Hogan.

I can see it now, Jon Jones starring in: ....... Thunder in Paradise: Return to Paradise!!!

Does every fighter these days aspire to be a Hollywood actor? Does Jones not make enough money as UFC Champion that he won't have enough saved up after he retires from fighting? What the hell's going on lately?

The Rock guy has personality. I am sure it helps. Jones' personality is the equivalent of the saying "flat as a board".

I know I should look at this like a guy just trying to make the best out of what he worked for,and I shouldn't let it bother me,but i cant help it.I don't know why but for some reason when he talks like this it bugs the shit out of me.

Apparently the Rock's movies started with whatever one Jones saw first.

It's asif Jone's is on a psychoactive drug made from his own sweat that makes him see the world differently than 99% of people and not just personal issues, like the colour the sky different.

I think so too.

Hes a top 5 paid actor in Hollywood now, no? He might not be Daniel Day Lewis but you dont become that successful by not being able to act.
