That's the rumor...
The National Enquirer (via Contact Music) reports that Tom Cruise has promised to help David Beckham become a movie star. Beckham is said to be looking for a new line of work now that he's retired from soccer and wants Cruise to help him establish himself in film.
A source said: "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."
Beckham and his wife Victoria are good friends with Cruise and his now ex-wife Katie Holmes and have been for several years. The friendship grew when Beckham was playing for the Los Angeles Galaxy. It's rumored Beckham has his eye on a role in Mission: Impossible 5.
The source added: "Who knows? We could see David in 'Mission: Impossible 5'."
He has appeared in film before, playing himself in the Goal! trilogy while he was a member of the Real Madrid squad.
