Randy Couture stars in “The Expendables 3,” to be released August 2014 by Lionsgate. He also starred in every film of this franchise. “The Expendables 2” added great international value to his name as he reprised his role for director Simon West opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jet Li, Jason Statham and several others. Randy’s other projects include “Fight Master” for Spike TV and “Gym Rescue” for Spike TV – which will follow hit series “Bar Rescue” as it continues to air as one of the network’s most successful shows. Furthermore, Randy starred opposite Bruce Willis in Lionsgate’s “Set Up” and of course in the first “Expendables” for actor-director Sylvester Stallone. Additionally, Randy was in David Mamet’s “Red Belt” for Sony Classics and played a recurring character on CBS’ “The Unit.”
Randy’s autobiography, “Becoming the Natural,” was on the New York Times Best-seller List for a number of weeks. He was recently on tour supporting his latest novel, “The Last Round.”
At 44, Randy came out of retirement to shock the world by recapturing the UFC Heavyweight belt and defended it a number of times thereafter. If Randy was previously seen as an icon and poster boy for the sport as a five-time World Champion and Hall of Famer, he soon became known as a legend in what everyone agrees is the fastest growing sport on the planet. While he’s known to break many records, his title defense against Brock Lesnar still stands as one of the biggest pay-per-view events in the history of the UFC.
Randy served in the U.S. Army from 1982 to 1988, attaining the rank of Sergeant in the 101st Airborne.
Randy is considered to be one of a few highly successful crossover actor-athletes, inspiring a consistently growing global fan base worldwide.
