As UFC star Ronda Rousey continues to add to her resume, she has made it known that there is one role she would love to take on should the movie ever be made.

GameSpot's Mat Paget recently asked Rousey if there was a video game she would like to see turned into a movie with her as the star. As it turned out, there was.

"I've always wanted to be Samus," Rousey said. "That would be badass. I love how people found out later that it was a hot chick on the inside. And then most of the day you're in a suit, so you can just hang out and eat doughnuts and be the star of Metroid. I hope they make a movie out of that."

Rousey has already shown that she can handle herself both in the Octagon and on the big screen. The 29-year-old fighter has credits in films such as Entourage and Furious 7, and she is currently working on a remake of Road House.

Maybe Rousey mentioning her desire to be in the potential movie will get some people in Hollywood to consider making her dream a reality. Hey, it never hurts to throw an idea out there.
