We've got more casting news for the next installment of the Captain America franchise! According to Latino Review, MMA fighter Georges St-Pierre has been cast in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" in the role of a villain. GSP will play Batroc the Leaper, an experienced thief, smuggler and mercenary who speaks French and English and is an expert in savate, French style kickboxing. Although he's got no superhuman abilities, he is in peak physical condition and can leap with the strength and force of an Olympian, hence the name. GSP joining the next installment of "Captain America" is just the most recent casting news, but it was also announced that Robert Redford is currently in negotiations to play a government official in the movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it looks like he'll be playing a high ranking S.H.I.E.L.D. officer, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet. "The Winter Soldier" will pick up where "The Avengers" left off, and is set to start shooting this May. The movie will be directed by Anthony and Joe Russo and will star Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan, reprising their roles as Captain America and Bucky. Do you guys think it will be cool to see Georges St-Pierre playing Batroc the Leaper? And what character do you think Marvel has in mind for Robert Redford?
