I’d rather pay to see Conor McGregor’s next fight than try to watch him act…

Looks like Conor McGregor’s transition to acting is going to be very lucrative for the MMA star. He’s making his film debut with Amazon’s Road House movie. However, he’s not doing it for the love of the craft.

McGregor is getting a fat salary for his acting debut. Conor McGregor’s net worth is already at $200 million and could skyrocket if he turns out to have a lucrative acting career.

Conor McGregor Highest Paid First-Time Actor Ever?

Never one to stay humble, Conor McGregor made sure to brag about the entertainment news that he’s apparently the highest-paid first-time actor ever on Twitter.

“I am now officially the highest-paid first-time actor of all time, on record, pipping Dwayne Johnson for the top spot,” McGregor tweeted and then deleted. “Incredible!”

McGregor didn’t give specifics about his salary but The Rock was paid $5.5 million for his debut role in The Mummy Returns back in 2001. It’s safe to say that McGregor is making a bit more than that. However, I don’t understand why we don’t adjust for inflation on these things. $5.5 million in 2001 would be over $9 million if adjusted for inflation.

Maybe McGregor made $10 million but I’m not sure why. How many people are watching Road House for McGregor? Clearly, somebody thinks people will. I’d rather pay to see Conor McGregor’s next fight than try to watch him act.

 

Athletes Turned Actors

I’m personally not a fan of the athletes as actors thing. Outside of Jake Gyllenhaal, the Road House cast isn’t filled with A-listers so I understand the logic of doing some stunt casting with McGregor. Regardless, I don’t have high hopes for this movie.

Doug Liman has a decent track record as an action director but I don’t think Road House was a movie that was screaming to be remade. Honestly, McGregor might be the most interesting person to watch coming from this movie.

I would’ve never thought he’d be an actor. His public persona is just too iconic. However, Dwayne Johnson proved that the general public likes seeing a charismatic former athlete on the big screen. I haven’t watched a Dwayne Johnson joint in a long time but I guess I’m not the target audience. With McGregor already having so much money, it’ll be interesting to see if he wants to take acting seriously.
