He may be known for bending it like David Beckham, but Andrés Iniesta will be kickin’ it in a different role in the very near future…
The 29-year-old Spanish soccer star, who scored the winning goal that ensured Spain the World Cup title in 2010, will make his film debut with a cameo appearance alongside Ernesto Alterio in Santi Amodeo‘s comedy Who Killed Bambi?
The film, produced by Rodar y Rodar, will be distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing Spain and tells the story of two friends who must find a way to return the president of their company to his home safe and sound after discovering him half-naked in the trunk of their car.
Iniesta, who plays for Futbol Club Barcelona when not sporting the national team’s jersey, is considered Spain’s most beloved player, not only for his famous winning goal, but for his soft-spoken, good-sportsman-like manner.
In soccer-crazed Spain, Iniesta is one of the few players that the whole country supports.
Further details about Iniesta’s cameo aren’t immediately clear yet.
Bambi is scheduled for release in Spain on November 15.
