David Beckham's Comedy Role in NFL Sketch

Posted Tuesday September 11, 2012 10:02 PM GMT

He's a soccer superstar and style icon, and now David Beckham has turned his hand to acting.

The 37 year-old husband of designer Victoria Beckham appears in a Cribs-style comedy sketch with Saturday Night Live star Rob Riggle, which is to be featured on Fox's 'NFL Sunday'.

Riggle tours a garish mansion for the promo and comes to face to face with the soccer hunk by the pool.

When asked what he's doing there, Riggle replies, "Becks! Hey, I'm working for the NFL now so I made myself at home. They tell me some football player lives here."

When an indignant Beckham says he is the footballer in question, the 42 year-old comedian returns with, "Ha, no no no. Like a 'real' football player."

It all ends with Riggle running away as the soccer maestro threatens to call the police. Watch the clip below!
