David Beckham

He's known around the world for his football genius but could David Beckham soon become famous for his acting skills?

In an interview with a Chinese news station David's wife, Victoria, is reported to have said she thought her husband would be great on the big screen.

The fashion designer added: "I think he should be James Bond! He'd be a good James Bond!"

The couple are good friends with Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise, so perhaps he could pass on some tips?

Your comments

"I think Tom Cruise should be the next James Bond. David Beckham should be the next Doctor Who. He can defeat all the daleks with his football!"

Simran, Essex England

"I think David Beckham should not be the next Bond as he does not need to be any more famous than he already is. Also when Daniel Craig goes I think a beginner to the film world should take the role, then get famous by it!"

Amy, Northampton, England

"Beckham should do Doctor Who because Daniel Craig is fine as James Bond."

Callum, Wigan, England

"I don't think he'd make a very good James Bond. He's a great footballer but I don't know if he'd be a good actor. Even if he could act, I'd just think of him as David Beckham so it wouldn't be very believable."

Holly, West Yorkshire, England

"It should be Matt Smith because he can act really well."

Satenik, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England

"He's a footballer not an actor! I think he would be terrible!"

Millie, Houghton, England

"I do not think that David Beckham should be James Bond because he is too famous for his football career and it will not be as realistic as if it was a less famous actor. I think that David Beckham would be better playing a less serious part in a different film."
