Had word yesterday that Guy Ritchie is making a film about King Arthur, and David Beckham has been offered a part?
Ha ha ha Robert!
I do have a tiny amount of respect for Mr Beckham given how generally, he has conducted his affairs and made his life so successful in this ultra image conscious world of ours nowadays, however...Laurence Olivier he is not!
I'll be avoiding that film.
What an insult to the hundreds of real actors, unfortunately i am in the minority of people who cannot stand the man, he is over hyped and well over paid. At the end of the day he was/is a footballer, he never won the world cup for England so what he had on his side was a very good PA person.
Its simply an insult to real actors and is probably been offered the role either because he is a mate of Guy Ritchie or the director has been offered money to put him in a film, but nothing surprises me lately,
If he gets the role i hope it flops, that'l teach Guy Ritchie a lesson for making a stupid decision
I would think Beckham is more wooden than the table they'll be sitting around, unless that's the part he's landed, the round
table! Anyway, King Arthur would be well advised to seat him well away fro Chalices, Goblets or Cups, he lost us two to my
knowledge. If they do any blue screen, he'll disappear with all the tattoos and menu's from Chinese Chip shops written on him.
I don't think they had Court Jesters in those days. I am not a football fan myself, but I noticed when I used to watch the World Cup that 3rd rate countries, and those new to football were better at it than we are. The last time I watched the World Cup England were always on the defence rather than the attack, and when a player gets anywhere near the rival team's goal, he finds he has no one to pass the ball to.
I would think David Beckham is financing this film, I mean, he can't string two words 'togevver, know what I mean', I can only guess that any nude scenes will either be body doubled or shot from the neck up, or a ton of body make up, or paint even, to cover up his his little
body that resembles the Sunday Supplement. That aside, isn't Guy Ritchie attempting to remake "The Man From Uncle", how can they replace Robert Vaughn & David McCallum, I shudder to think. Thankfully, we are spared all this crap on our film gauges. Regarding the
King Arthur carry on, I still think the best rendition was the TV series "Arthur of the Britons", a realistic take on the legend, at the time,
I was a decent look alike for Oliver Tobias as Arthur, with hair like a tart at the time, how times change.
