Rio Ferdinand, Who Wants to Play James Bond One Day, Acts in New Advert

Mark Patterson@@MarkPattersonBRUK Staff WriterNovember 29, 2013

Rio Ferdinand quite fancies a crack at acting after his football career is over, and the Manchester United defender has been enlisted by HMV to appear in an advert promoting Beats Studio headphones.

How did he do? You can watch him in action above and judge for yourselves.

We'll say nothing, except to point out that Ferdinand has designs on an even bigger role in the future.

In January 2013, he said in an interview picked up by the Metro that he wanted to play James Bond:

I’ve got too much for a henchman role. I’d need for it to be, I dunno, like Luther [BBC’s crime series starring Idris Elba]. Or if they’re looking for a new James Bond, I wouldn’t say that’s out of my comfort zone at all.

So you tell us—should Daniel Craig, the current James Bond, be watching his back?
