Ronda Rousey to star in new Tina Fey movie

Monday January 18th, 2016

Ronda Rousey is continuing to bulk up her acting résumé with a new high profile project. The MMA star will co-star alongside Tina Fey in a film currently titled Do Nothing B------, with a script inspired by Rousey’s viral rant against laziness.

Deadline Hollywood reports that the film will be written by former Saturday Night Live scribe Paula Pell, who also penned Fey’s most recent film Sisters, which also featured Amy Poehler.

Rousey already has a full slate of films ahead of her in addition to her MMA career, starring in an upcoming remake of Roadhouse as well as Mile 22 with Mark Wahlberg. The former bantamweight champion will get a chance to show off her comedic chops later this week when she hosts the Jan. 23 edition of SNL with musical guest Selena Gomez.
