Jared Leto has said he would like to play UFC president Dana White or MMA fighter Conor McGregor in a movie about the UFC.

The 50-year-old actor told Extras that he has an idea for a movie pitch.

“Maybe I can play [UFC president] Dana White.”

“If we do the UFC movie… if I was younger, I’d play Conor [McGregor].”

“I got the beard. What Conor does and what these guys and gals do is just extraordinary.”

“I’m too old to do Conor probably,” he admitted: “But you never know. We could maybe use some CGI.”

During a recent interview, Dana White himself revealed that the 30 Seconds To Mars singer is a huge UFC fan.

“Let me tell you what, Jared Leto is the biggest UFC fan. This dude knows all the ins and outs of the sport, he knows guys that are coming up. All he does is rock climb and watch UFC, [that's] all he does."

"He's actually a really cool dude,” White continued.

“He and I have actually become pretty close... Not even f**king close [is he weird?]”

“You would expect that. I get it, I totally get it that you would think that, Jared Leto is the furthest thing from a f**king weirdo. He's a normal, cool f**cking dude that loves the UFC and loves rock climbing."
