American movie buffs are keen to have Conor change career path for a little while, with a number of Hollywood stars suggesting that they’d cast them in a movie.
Fast and Furious actor Vin Diesel has hinted at a movie collaboration with Conor. He’s currently working on XXX: The Return of Xander Cage, and took to social media to share a picture of the two.
He said, “Timing and precision. The casting of the new XXX gets more exciting everyday. #ILiveForThisShit”
As well as Vin, Mark Wahlberg also hinted at the possibility of working with Conor in the future. While over in Dublin, he told the Irish Daily Star, “We talked about him for something. We live him.
“With the right role, he could be great. It’s quite possible.”
This isn’t the first time it has been suggested that Conor will hit the big screen, as a few weeks ago, his coach John Kavanagh revealed he’s bound to happen, it’s just a case of picking the perfect role.
Speaking to the Sunday Business Post, he said, “He has already got a bunch of offers, so it’s a matter if time. He could walk away from this sport today and he would be a very wealthy man for the rest of his life.”
The news of Conor’s possible new career path comes shortly after his girlfriend Dee posted a touching tribute to her beau after his exceptional win against Jose Aldo this weekend.
