In 2008, Rich joined the ranks of select UFC athletes who have crossed over to “Hollywood” for possible careers in television and film. His friends nicknamed him “Ace” for his resemblance to Jim Carrey’s character Ace Ventura. Franklin’s acting debut was in the sci-fi action film Cyborg Solider starring Tiffani Theissen where he played an escaped super solider. Two years later he returned to the big screen as a college wrestling coach in the 2010 release of Hamill, a story inspired by the life of deaf UFC fighter Matt Hamill.
