- RONALDO GOES ON THE OPEN ROAD
Ronaldo, a former two time world cup winner and retired football legend, seems to be heading for the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and leaving football behind him, for now at least.
The former Real Madrid and Inter Milan striker, who retired from professional football at the age of 34 last February after suffering chronic knee problems, will feature in Marcio Garcia's new film Open Road.
According to France Football, Ronaldo will have a small role in the movie playing a bank robber. Shooting will begin in Los Angeles next month, when the footballer will rub shoulders with leading actors such as Juliette Lewis, Andy Garcia and fellow Brazilian Juliana Paes.
"I'll study the film industry, seriously, to do it well," Ronaldo said on Twitter.
The phenomenon, will be working with Will Smith’s former acting coach that will try and help the football icon have a successful acting career, just as he had a soccer career.
The three-time FIFA World Player of the Year is not the first footballer to try his hand and acting, and follows in the footsteps of Eric Cantona and Vinnie Jones in trying to forge a career in film.
Will he be able to hold his own in this film? We will just have to wait and see, but we can tell you this, the whole world will be wishing him well and success!!!
