Superstar Tom Cruise has reportedly promised to help soccer player David Beckham become a movie star.
Beckham is looking for a fresh challenge now that he has decided to retire from football and thinks he has what it takes to be a star in Hollywood, reported Showbizspy.
"David has always wanted to be an action film star, and Tom promised him a long time ago he can make those dreams come true. David still loved soccer but feels that now is a great time to transition into film while he's still young enough to land top-notch roles," a source said.
David and his spouse Victoria became good friends with Cruise and his now ex-wife Katie Holmes several years ago and their bond was strengthened when they were living in America when David was playing for Los Angeles Galaxy.
The sportsman is said to have his eye on a role in Tom's planned action sequel 'Mission: Impossible 5'.
David, 38, has appeared on the big screen before in the 'Goal!' trilogy playing himself when he was a member of the Real Madrid squad.
