Nine renowned footballers who turned actors

There are times when you are climbing up the stairs of your career and a foreign avocation begins seizing your interest. Footballers are no aliens in this. We have got footballer players who have turned to business to emerge as top businessmen, those who have embraced politics and became politicians, still others who are highly educated, scholars and of course, there are actors too! So here I am laying down a list of footballers who have tried themselves before the camera at some point of time or another, and there are a few who entirely gave themselves to acting.

David Beckham

The English footballer famed as one of the highest earners in the game has made his appearance in all the three Goal series and also in the action movie called The Man From U.N.C.L.E., he has played the role of a projectionist. Club career shows he has worked for the Real Madrid, Man United, AC Milan amongst other clubs. Becks had also bestowed his special appearance for the TV sitcom Only Fools and Horses. However, he objected further speculations over his acting career by declaring he is too ‘stiff’ for that and he has no interest in the camera.

Pele

Who on earth can be ever unconscious of this football legend? The Brazilian forward apexes as most successful scorer, with 1281 goals out of 1363 games. Pele was shot for a glimpse in 1981 Escape to Victory/Victory and a similar brief appearance in the 1983 movie Minor Miracle 1987’s Hotshot.

Stan Collymore

This English footballer has been with a number of clubs comprising Fulham, Liverpool and Leicester City. Collymore presented himself as Kevin Franks in the movie Basic Instinct 2. Besides, he’s also active in TV & radio shows. What’s more, he owns a television production company too, named Maverick Spirit Productions.

Ian Wright

The retired English footballer once occupied the position of Arsenal’s top scorer for six seasons in a row. Wright endeavored to gather fame in the film world by presenting TV shows like Friends Like These, I’d Do Anything, What Kids Really Think and The National Lottery Ticket. He has worked with West Ham United and Crystal Palace.

Paul Breitner

The German soccerer is among the four players who have so far scored in two different world cup matches. His appearance does not abound in the media world but he has done two action-adventure movies, Potato Fritz in 1976, and another Kunyonga-Mord in Afrika a decade later.

Carlo Ancelotti

Currently ruling as the manager of the team Bayern Munich, the Italian soccerer is regarded as one of the successful managers of all time. He starred in 1980s comedy The World of Don Camillo in a brief but crucial part.

Ally McCoist

Alistair Murdoch ‘Ally’ McCoist occupied the field as striker and has made five successive league championships to his name. In the television career, he has been the team captain of the show A Question of Sport, telecast from 1996 to 2007. The Scottish footballer has also starred in A Shot at Glory, with Robert Dural, playing a fictional legendary ex- Celtic player.

Eric Cantona

The French forward has played with Man United and Leeds United. He has devoted later years of his career to cinema, mainly French Cinema. He is a regular face in TV commercials for Nike. He made his debut with widely acclaimed British movie Elizabeth (1998) and has also acted in Looking for Eric (2009).

Vinnie Jones

Vinnie Jones can be called more an actor than a footballer. His career history names Chelsea, Leeds United and Wimbledon as the teams he has been associated with. Jones is prone to play roles of fierce criminals or goons. But he could be conspicuous to the American audience only in the remake of Gone in 60 Seconds in 2000. He is also featured in British movie Mean Machine and EuroTrip.
