Will David Beckham replace Daniel Craig as James Bond?
Former British footballer David Beckham recently revealed that he hopes a career on the silver screen is calling.
The retired soccer star, recently had a cameo role in Guy Ritchie's 'Man from U.N.C.L.E.', has opened up about his Hollywood ambitions.
Daniel Craig signed up to be James Bond in 2005 and soon his contract will be expiring.
While there will be other considerations for the next James Bond, it seems like the former footballer is the favorite among fans.
Fans took to Twitter to urge the former footballer to go from shirt number 7 to 007, the 40-year-old was said to be 'considering' the opportunity to take on the role of James Bond.
The Daily Star reported that Beckham was taking the encouragement to act as Daniel Craig's next replacement very seriously, having previously successfully turned his career from sport to fashion and modelling but a representative has since denied the claims.
But his representative confirmed to MailOnline that David was not planning to step into the action heroes shoes any time soon.
The 40-year-old star has again teamed up with Guy for his next movie, 'Knights of the Roundtable', in which he'll have a speaking part.
David told The Times newspaper: "I had 13 lines and practised a huge amount beforehand. Guy had someone come and rehearse with me, and I did that an hour every day in the build-up."
Recently he said he can 'deal' with criticism about his new career.
He explained: "I am very aware that many sportsmen and other celebrities have turned their hand to acting and failed.
"I know that it is a tough profession, where you need a huge amount of skill and discipline, and I wouldn't want to push myself forward too soon, without learning more about it, and doing a lot more practice.
"But what I have done so far, I have loved. I can deal with most things. I am a well-known person, so I have got used to criticism."
