Tom Cruise wants David Beckham as co-star

The Mission Impossible actor says he wants close friend David Beckham to star alongside him in an action movie.

David wouldn't be the first footballer to turn to Hollywood after retirement, Vinnie Jones enjoyed a successful stint, and Tom Cruise thinks they'd work well as a duo.

He told the Daily Mirror: "I'd love to do action movies with Beckham, h
e would be great, he could kick ass."

However, David has previously played down the possibility of a future Hollywood career, saying: "I've had some offers but I'm not interested. I'm a terrible actor, I did a bit in Goal! playing myself and I looked rigid."

What do you think? Would David do well in an action film alongside Cruise?
