David Beckham isn’t kicking a role around in ‘Mission:Impossible IV’
HollywoodNews.com: David Beckham, best friend to Tom Cruise and famed soccer player, will not be appearing in “Mission: Impossible IV.”
A Cruise rep has denied rumors that Beckham is coming aboard the action franchise to play a pivotal role. The gossip was that Cruise wanted to use Beckham’s fame to raise the profile of the fourth film.
“This is blown out of proportion,” said Cruise’s spokesperson to Gossip Cop.
Clarifying Cruise’s take on Beckham, the rep explains: “He (Cruise) was asked a simple question on [a press] tour about if he thinks David would be a good actor and he said yes… then it ran into the ether in a crazy way that doesn’t [represent] what he said.”
