David Beckham is bitten by the acting bug

Guy Ritchie has taken the former Manchester United and England captain under his wing and has already cast him in two of his films.

And it looks like Beckham has been bitten by the acting bug.

Beckham told The Times: "I am very aware that many sportsmen and other celebrities have turned their hand to acting and failed."

He added: "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."

Johnny Depp makes surprise appearance at Disney convention

The actor made a surprise appearance at Disney's D23 Expo, a fan convention, to accept the honor from Disney CEO Bob Iger on Friday.

Depp has starred in Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean" series as Captain Jack Sparrow as well as their live-action "Alice in Wonderland" as the Mad Hatter.

The actor said that he doesn't like the words "fan" or "legend" but thanked the 7,500 audience members for giving him the "opportunity to do stupid stuff for a living."
