Pic: Georges St. Pierre a.k.a. 'Batroc the Leaper' fights Captain America on set of 'Winter Soldier' movie

Check out the first image of former UFC Welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre playing his role as "Batroc The Leaper" in the new "Captain America: Winter Soldier" movie.

Georges St-Pierre may not be busting heads inside the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Octagon anymore, but he's still putting his superior fighting skills to good use.

In one of the first promotional images released by Marvel.com of "Rush" playing his role of "Batroc The Leaper" in the upcoming film "Captain America" Winter Soldier" -- which opens in theaters on April 4, 2014 --  the former Welterweight champion is seen battling the leader of The Avengers himself.

St-Pierre nabbed the spot in the upcoming blockbuster sequel last year prior to his title fight against Johny Hendricks. However, it isn't the first time the French-Canadian has dabbled in acting, as his resume includes three low-budget, straight-to-DVD films titled "Death Warrior," "Hell's Chain" and "Never Surrender."

It safe to say his latest Hollywood venture is his highest profile acting gig to date.

But, will it be his last?

He has the look -- one which helped him become the face of UFC -- and if his acting chops prove to be up to snuff, it could lead to more roles in Tinseltown and perhaps shift his temporary hiatus from the fight game into a permanent one.

It's happened before.
