Captain Sir Tom Moore has sad he'd like David Beckham to play him in a biopic.
Captain Tom Moore has spoken out on who he'd like to play him in a movie about his life, revealing he'd love David Beckham to take on the lead role.
The 100-year-old war veteran, who raised more than £32million for the NHS during lockdown by doing laps of his garden, spoke about who he'd like to play him during a chat on Good Morning Britain on Thursday.
He said: "David Beckham. He looks like a very nice person. He's quite young and good looking.
"Whenever you see him, he moves about so well. He's a person who looks like he's alive all time. He is a young person and he looks very well."
His words come after a report by The Sun that he's been approached by a number of production studios regarding a potential film about his life.
A source said: "His story is the stuff of Hollywood movies.
"Not only are his recent exploits remarkable, but as a World War Two hero in India and Burma he has seen and done so much.
"Nothing has been signed yet — the family are still overwhelmed with all the support. But the documentary has been agreed.
"These are exciting times. He’s pinching himself about the opportunities he continues to have."
