After besting the better part of the last fifteen years fighting inside the UFC_s Octagon, Tito Ortiz is nearing the end of his fighting career and already has a plan for his future.
Ortiz is focusing on a career in movies and has been taking acting classes in hopes of becoming the next big Hollywood star.
The former Champ talked about it this week:
"Of course there_s an opportunity for me (in Hollywood). I think it_s the producer and director giving me an opportunity that I_ve never had. I_m still a young kid, you know, I_ve been fighting for this game for almost 15 years now. And the next step, of course it_s Hollywood. Of course it_s getting into movies but doing the right thing. Doing the acting classes, that_s really mandatory. All the biggest actors in the world, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, they still do acting classes, it_s mandatory. You gotta do those things and that_s what it comes down to. And you have to do them five days a week. It_s just like training. When I go into something head first, I have to make sure I go 100-percent and that_s what it comes down to. And that_s really doing the acting classes. If I want to be an actor, I gotta do acting classes. You_re not going to be a fighter by just doing classes a couple times a week. You gotta be a fighter 100-percent, that_s what I put my life in, so if I want to be an actor, I gotta do the same thing too."
