Bob Sapp Cast in Conan


Latino Review reports that MMA star Bob Sapp will play Ukafa in director Marcus Nispel’s Conan, which starts filming in Bulgaria on March 15th. He’s joining Jason Momoa, Mickey Rourke and Leo Howard in the Lionsgate fantasy action adventure.

The following is how the character is described:

Ukafa is in his 30s-40, very dark-skinned African or African American, massively framed at six-foot-five, gold-toothed, hardened by a lifetime of war, a leader of Kushite Tribemen from the savannahs of Kush. Ukafa is Khalar Singh’s second in command, jealous that Singh’s son, Fariq, will one day be warlord. He obeys his leader but plots the overthrow of his son. He is a mighty warrior and unbeatable in battle—until he comes face to face with Conan.
