Eric Cantona's colourful career after football has taken a strange new twist with the news that he has been cast to play "The Stallion" in an erotic movie.

Former Manchester United legend Cantona has forged a successful acting career since hanging up his boots and, according to a report in the Daily Telegraph, will appear in Les Rencontres d'Après Minuit (The Meetings After Midnight).

The report says:

Cantona plays a character L’Etalon (The Stallion), who is invited by a young couple and their transvestite maid for an orgy

The 47-year-old Frenchman is quoted in the article as saying that the film is:

"not foolishly voyeuristic but elegant and unique"

You can make up your own mind in November when the film is released.
