'Monsters University:' UFCs Georges St. Pierre to voice 'Art' in French-Canadian version

USA TODAY Sports

Georges St. Pierre is back on set again as "a shaggy purple fratboy." Seriously.

Georges St. Pierre is going Hollywood ... again.

Fresh off the set of the upcoming "Captain America" sequel titled "Winter Soldier" (details here) as "Baltroc the Leaper," the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight Champion has landed another high-profile role as the voice of "Art" in the French-Canadian language version of Pixar's animated "Monsters University," according to TheStar.com.

"Monsters University," which is the "college-days prequel" to "Monsters Inc." of 2001 is described (via IMDb.com) as:

Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn't always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn't stand each other. 'Monsters University' unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.

In the English version on "Monsters University," "Art" -- a shaggy purple fratboy who is a mysterious monster with a questionable background and the strangest member of the Oozma Kappa fraternity -- is voiced by Charlie Day, who is joined by heavy hitters such as Billy Crystal, John Goodman and Steve Buscemi, among others.

It's unclear who will join "Rush" behind the Canadian scenes of "Monsters University," which is set for release in the United States on July 21, 2013, but it certainly won't be Johny Hendricks, his most likely next opponent inside the Octagon.

"Bigg Rigg" has suggested that St. Pierre will be too busy with his acting aspirations and not focused on his mixed martial arts (MMA) career if and when the 170-pound standouts finally collide. "Rush" responded, saying that he was "already training" his recent movie roles have "nothing to to with the end of my [MMA] career."

For now.
