After football, Roni will be trying out cinema. The great Brazilian is expected this fall in a movie next to a big star of the silver screen.
From dancing samba in the fields to pretty girls in the pool, Ronaldinho is undoubtedly living the good life of a wealthy soccer player. Before officially quitting soccer, the 37 years old Brazilian may have found a new career path: cinema.
The fantastic dribbler will now show his acting skills on camera and not just with anyone since he will be with the equally famous Jean-Claude Van Damme! The Belgian actor will be hitting the wood on the table again this fall on Kickboxer: Retaliation, sequel of the 1989 movie, before engaging on a third movie, Kickboxer: Vengeance.
In this movies' cast, Van Damme will be next to the charismatic Mike Tyson, Dave Bautista, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson alias La Montagne in Game of Thrones and Ronaldinho as well. The former star of Barca will be playing the role of a prisonner that's an expert in martial arts named... Ronaldo! No, you are not dreaming!
Obviously, the 2005 Ballon d'Or was not recruited for his acting skills as it was confirmed by the producer Rob Hickman to the Hollywood Reporter. "As producers, we must consider the total value of a potential star. In addition to his charisma, Ronaldinho also brings with him 66 million fans on social networks. This is something priceless..." Marketing done right...
Anyway, we can not wait to see Ronaldo... Ronaldinho, who was rather known to be a dancer, show us his fighting skills.
