Holloway to appear in upcoming action thriller with 50 Cent and Gerard Butler

Wednesday, February 08, 2017

The Buzzer’s Andy Nesbitt spoke recently with UFC Interim featherweight champion Max Holloway, for a wide-ranging interview.

“Now I can talk about it. Old boy might become a movie star now,” revealed Blessed.

“I just got a deal, the movie name is Den of Thieves. The three main guys is 50 Cent, O’Shea Jackson Jr. [Ice Cube], and Gerard Butler.”

“Next week is my first shoot. I’ll be out there for one week, then I go home, then in March to April, I will be gone for one month shooting for them. We’ll be in Atlanta. … This is my first acting job. I can’t really act. In a fight you can’t really act unless you’re a loser. Just joking.

“I’m nervous. I’m excited. I’m a small little Hawaiian boy, that English isn’t really that much great coming from me. But I’m excited and can’t wait for the opportunity.”


“I’ll be shooting for one month, and we’ll figure out [when I fight next]. First thing’s first, we have to find that guy first. Go back to #WheresJoseWaldo, and let your boy know if you find him. He took a long time to pop up, so I took this movie deal.”
