Cathal Pendred is taking Hollywood by storm – the Dubliner has just landed a role on Ray Donovan.

The ex-UFC fighter left the ring for good last November before announcing that he wanted to pursue a career in acting, and now Cathal Pendred has landed a role on hit American crime series Ray Donovan. 

He's currently in LA for 10 days to pursue his onscreen career, we can reveal. 

Following in the footsteps of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Mike Tyson, the Dubliner has taken a career detour to Hollywood.

The 28-year-old posted a picture to Instagram on Monday saying: “Inked up in LA. My first day on the set for #RayDonovan”. 

The former MMA fighter has also had our hearts racing in the snaps he’s shared from his reported role in the new Baywatch movie alongside Zac Efron, which is due to come out next year. 

“The Punisher” told Breakfast Republic in January that acting is something he’s “always been interested in” and that he has set his sights on action movies.
