Tom Cruise thinks David Beckham would be perfect on the silver screen

He’s certainly got the face and the body of a movie star, but the voice?

We’re not so sure.

Yet Tom Cruise, 51, reckons his pal David Beckham, 38, has all the makings of the next big Hollywood star.

The actor has been desperately trying to convince our Becks to make the transition from the football pitch to the big screen.

A source says: ‘Tom‘s trying to coax him into the acting world.

‘He knows David would be fabulous and keeps trying to tempt him with an action film.’

The news comes after Colin Firth reportedly tried to get David to take a role in a new spy film.
