Bob Sapp stars in "Conan the Barbarian" (2011), opposite Jason Momoa, as Ukafa.

Bob Sapp was an American Football player, kickboxer, mixed martial artist and professional wrestler before he began his career in movies. Affectionately known as "The Beast," due to his size and charismatic aggression, the 6'4" lineman played for several NFL teams before beginning his pro fighting career in 2000 when he defeated William "The Refrigerator" Perry in FX's "Toughman" boxing special.

Best known as Switowski in Paramount's sports-comedy remake, "The Longest Yard," with Adam Sandler and Chris Rock, Sapp appears in the film with other pro wrestlers, including Stone Cold Steve Austin and Kevin Nash. Additional feature film character highlights include Lionsgate's horror comedy "Frankenhood"; a mob leader's best fighter, Hammerman, in Ben Ramsey's mixed martial arts splatter-fest "Blood and Bone"; director Rob Schneider's prison-yard comedy "Big Stan," appearing alongside other real life MMA fighters Randy Couture and Don Frye; and Stone, a highly trained martial artist physically invulnerable to anything in Rob Bowman's superhero movie "Elektra," starring Jennifer Garner.

Sapp began his acting career in the comic Japanese crime series "You're Under Arrest," based on Kosuke Fujishima's manga and anime franchise "Taiho Shichauzo." He is also featured in Takashi Miike's "Izo," the fantasy horror film that recounts the after-death experiences of 19th century samurai and assassin Izo Okada. The actor, who won the 2004 IWGP world heavyweight title from Kensuke Saski, is well known in Japan where he appears in television programs and commercials, and has also released a music CD titled "It's Sapp Time."
