He thinks Rock did it right...
Jon Jones recently spoke with MMAjunkie about a potential eventual acting career and more. Check out the highlights:
On who he wants to emulate if he goes into acting: "I'd like to model my acting career on Dwayne Johnson, the way he came out of [WWE] and started off tough guy roles and then moved over to doing Tooth Fairy. That's when you really saw that he could act, and he's the one I admire and respect a lot, so I know I'd love to model my acting career after (him)."
On meetings he had at the start of the summer about a potential acting career: "Those meetings went great. I realize that they see that I have a little bit of character on me, and with the right training, I could possibly be in some movies in the future. As an entertainer, I think acting is one of the highest levels you can get, and right now, I'm doing pretty well in my field, which is the martial arts world. To branch out a little bit and get my feet wet there and maybe prepare myself for a career after this career, I think it's all part of the plan."
On taking acting seriously when he decides to do it: "I'll definitely take a lot of classes."
