Football icon would cameo opposite stars Colin Firth, Samuel L Jackson and Michael Caine
David Beckham has reportedly been offered a role in The Secret Service, the forthcoming spy thriller from Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn.
The film, based on a graphic novel of the same name by Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar, will star Colin Firth as a secret agent who joins forces with a punky young upstart played by newcomer Taron Egerton. Samuel L Jackson has been cast as the film’s villain and Michael Caine will appear as the head of a spy organisation.
Now Beckham has been offered a cameo role, The Sun claims, because Vaughn is keen to boost the movie’s profile.
“Becks was asked by Colin Firth if he’d like to be in the movie but he is yet to fully commit,” a source apparently told the tabloid. “He loves movies and fancies appearing on the big screen – but just as a one-off, not a full-time career.”
