Conor McGregor Lands His First Acting Role

Published

on

Alongside Jake Gyllenhaal, Conor McGregor has landed his first significant acting role in a remake of an 80s classic. Although the specifics of his character are unknown, Jake plays a former UFC fighter who has become a bouncer in the new movie. As a result, we can assume that Conor’s competitive nature will be useful on set.

Joining Them

The Doug Liman-directed movie will be an Amazon Original and will be available on Prime Video in 240 countries and territories. Billy Magnussen from The Survivor and Daniela Melchior from The Suicide Squad are two additional cast members.

The Brains Behind It

Charles Mondry and Anthony Bagarozzi are writing the screenplay. For those who don’t know, Rowdy Herrington directed the 1989 release of Road House.

The late, great Patrick Swayze played James Dalton, a “cooler” at a Missouri highway dive bar. A bouncer or security guard known as a “cooler” is responsible for breaking up confrontations before they get out of hand. In the new version, Jake takes on the role of the lead while continuing to work as a bouncer/cooler in a seedy club in the Florida Keys.

In a recent interview, Ariana Grande’s Sam & Cat co-star Jennette McCurdy admitted that she occasionally felt “jealous” of how the singer was treated.

The Opportunities

In her memoir, McCurdy, 30, discusses her time at Nickelodeon. She asserts that although she had to decline other jobs while working on iCarly, Grande was given permission to miss the production of Sam & Cat in order to participate in other shoots and events.

Leading Up to It

McCurdy said she quickly became ‘jealous’ and ‘pissed’ with Grande as a result of the singer being able to forego shooting in order to attend other events.

The last straw, according to McCurdy, came when her former co-star confessed she had spent the previous evening playing charades at Tom Hanks’ house when she arrived at work. It was difficult not to compare her professional path to Grande’s.
