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.

English soccer star David Beckham has long been known for much more than being just a soccer player, and is regarded as the sport’s most famous player, although he has been on the decline ever since signing a 5 year, $250 million deal with the Los Angeles Galaxy of the MLS.

Yahoo signed Beckham to a deal as their “Global Sports Ambassador,” a position in which he provided World Cup commentary and analysis to help Yahoo connect with their users.

Now, as part of the deal, Beckham will be using Yahoo Answers on July 14 to do a live chat with users who will be able to ask questions in advance. Fans from 20 different countries will ask questions live via video.

Should be an interesting interaction. Hopefully Beckham won’t pull his hamstring and have to pull out, although I can’t say I would be surprised.

Soccer’s biggest worldwide icon won’t be participating in the World Cup, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have other plans.

David Beckham suffered a tendon injury in March, but that hasn’t stopped him from being active. The Englishman visited the troops overseas in Afghanistan, where he also got the privilege of handling some heavy weapons and equipment.
