David Beckham used to be in the centre of attention and likes to be in front of the camera. The footballer’s tone body looks fantastic, and his actor’s gift was very useful for Guy Ritchie. The King Arthur: Legend of the Sword movie contains several images of Mr Beckham in a suit of knight armour.
the British celebrities David Beckham and Guy Ritchie know each other very well, and it’s not the first time David has worked with his old pal and director, Guy. This week, David posted a shot on Instagram wearing a full suit of armour, sword and rugged expression.
Of course, the famous athlete didn’t ask for the great role in the historical drama, he’s taking on a small guest part in Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. Beckham plays a knight called Trigger who tries but fails, to pull the famous sword called Excalibur from the stone. According to the legend, only the true king of England can release this powerful and magical weapon.
David Beckham in Guy Ritchie’s historical drama
Guy Ritchie invited to take on lead roles stars like Charlie Hunnam as King Arthur as well as Jude Law who performed almost scandalous Pope Pius XIII in the recent TV-series. However, David Beckham’s small part may be the first screen appearance in the future cinema career of the British celebrity. In 2015, there were rumours that one day, David may play even James Bond. Of course, it was mostly a joke but David’s actor potential is good enough, Guy Ritchie believes.
The 41-year-old David posted a shot of himself recently with some seriously gnarly battle scars and excellently realistic rotten teeth.
David Beckham has worked with Guy Ritchie earlier, they collaborated on his H&M commercials back in 2013 and David has spoken in the past about wanting to gain acting experience.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword will heat the theatres in the UK on 12 May.
