International icon David Beckham’s soccer career may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to fall off the map.

One of Beckham’s best buds is actor Tom Cruise, who reportedly wants him to give the movie industry a try. According to Cruise, Beckham “has the looks” to make it in Hollywood.

The Mission Impossible star also stated “I’ve been encouraging him to become an actor. He’s got the looks, he’s got everything. He’d be terrific.”

Beckham may have the looks and personality to take on Hollywood, but can he actually “act,” that is the question.
