Ronda Rousey is known for her love of video games, especially Pokemon. When it comes to movies though would you want to see A Ronda Rousey Samus?
In an interview with Gamespot, Rousey was mainly discussing EA Sports UFC 2 but many other subjects based around gaming also popped up. This included an interesting video game dream role for the MMA Star:
“I’ve always wanted to be Samus. That would be badass. I love how people found out later that it was a hot chick on the inside. And then most of the day you’re in a suit, so you can just hang out and eat donuts and be the star of Metroid. I hope they make a movie out of that.”
Do you think that Ronda would make a good Samus? She does play the badass characters well, we’ve already seen her in Fast and Furious 7, and is currently preparing to film Road House. If there was ever a Metroid film, I’m sure that she would easily make the short list.
Until then though we’ll see her in EA Sports UFC 2, and on that subject she revealed her thoughts on her character in the game being under the control of the player:
“I have a really hard time with it. I don’t like watching my own character or playing my own character, to be honest. I don’t like feeling like I don’t have immediate control over my body; you know, like, figuring out what buttons do and saying “No, you do that!” It’s much easier for me to counter a double with a Harai Goshi than finding the buttons that do that.
But it’s cool to see the little details and the little mannerisms of mine that have been picked up on and put into the game.”
