Art, a purple shaggy monster, is described as a mysterious monster with a questionable background and the strangest member of the Oozma Kappa fraternity at Monsters University.
Monsters University is the animated prequel to the 2001 blockbuster Monsters Inc.
St-Pierre recently concluded filming for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, where he plays the villain role of Batroc the Leaper.
St-Pierre has also had acting roles in the 2009 Hell’s Chain, Never Surrender and Death Warrior.
He is expected to defend his welterweight title against top contender Johny Hendricks later this year.
