David Beckham may already be in LA playing for the LA Galaxy, but one of his closest friends, actor Tom Cruise, wants him to become an actor himself. The megastar was quoted as saying: “I’ve been encouraging him to become an actor. He’s got the looks, he’s got everything. He’d be terrific.” The two have been buddies for a long time, and Cruise has made such comments in the past as well.

It’s funny because at the same time, transfer rumors have come out linking him with a return to England. West Ham United want the former England captain to play for them, and believe they have the money to lure him. Still, Hollywood or West Ham for Becks? I can’t say I’d blame him too much if he chooses the former. He has achieved everything there is to achieve in club football, and I think he wouldn’t mind spending his last few years as a player in the States.

Beckham has been apart of hundreds of commercials and photo shoots around the world, but does this mean he can act? I guess we’ll find out one day, but I’m certain everyone remembers the Adidas Star Wars commercial released in the summer. He only has a few words to say, but contributes to a highly amusing piece of work. Maybe comedy can be his thing – I don’t think he can quite match up to the dramatic work Tom Cruise does.
