Here's David Beckham, Actor, Holding His Own Next to Charlie Hunnam in King Arthur
We seriously have to ask the question: What can't David Beckham do? International soccer superstar, philanthropist, model, and now—actor!
Back in March, Beckham posted a picture of his unbelievable transformation into a villain for friend and famed filmmaker Guy Ritchie's upcoming King Arthur film. And now we've got a clip of the British heartthrob's feature film acting debut.
In the scene, star Charlie Hunnam (who plays King Arthur) is making a valiant attempt to remove the legendary sword from the stone, whilst verbally sparring with Beckham and a devilish group of henchman. As for where he wants Arthur? "Bouncing on my knee," he states. Cheeky, David!
He continues, "Where do you think I want you? 'ands on the 'ilt, stupid." Later, he exclaims, "Oi, both hands!" We're not used to Beckham being anything other than noble, but we like it!
Of his role, Beckham told the U.K.'s The Times, "I had 13 lines and practiced a huge amount beforehand. Guy had someone come and rehearse with me, and I did that an hour every day in the build-up." Looks like the hard work paid off.
King Arthur hits theaters this Friday, May 12. Watch the new clip at top.
