Randy Couture will join Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillippe in Set Up
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
UFC fighter Randy Couture is the latest fighter/wrestler that Hollywood has grabbed up from the rings to become action stars. After his stint in last year’s THE EXPENDABLES (which was really a disappointment) he has landed his next gig in the upcoming heist action film SET UP. Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillippe have already signed on as have Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Jenna Dewan Tatum. The film is about a group of small time criminals that are running a diamond heist that turns deadly, Couture will play bodyguard to the crime lord (Bruce Willis). SET UP will be directed by Mike Gunther.
I think I’ve already expressed my lack of enthusiasm for this film so I’ll just grumble to myself. I still can’t believe Bruce Willis is doing this, but I can believe that Randy Couture is. I don’t think he’ll make it to the level of Dwayne Johnson (ex-wrestler The Rock) but I do think he’ll be one of those standby bad guy henchman in years to come.
