GSP to appear in Captain America sequel?

Edited on 3.25 @ 9:30 AM

UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre is being reported as playing villain Batroc The Leaper in the upcoming movie, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." In a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, Firas Zahabi alluded to St. Pierre taking some time off this year to film a movie but didn't give any details.

If you're not familiar with Batroc, he's a French mercenary that specializes in Savate (French kickboxing) and has Olympic-level leaping skills.

Below is a picture of Batroc from Marvel Comics:
