Rousey to guest star on NBC series
February 22, 2017
MMA Junkie reports that Ronda Rousey will be back on television guest starring on the NBC crime-drama series “Blindspot.”
Rousey will play a female prison inmate. The backstory of her role here:
Rousey will be playing DEVON PENBERTHY: a female prison inmate who grew up in a working-class family from the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and is serving time for transporting weapons across state lines. She is a tough, athletic woman who knows how to fight and handle a weapon.
Maybe we are seeing Rousey’s next career taking shape. Despite losing this past December, her Hollywood agency is still seeking opportunities for her outside of the Octagon. It will be interesting to see whether or not her last two fights and her shunning the spotlight will negatively impact her persona as she moves away from fighting.
