From the sponsorships to the movie star lifestyle, David Beckham always seemed on the cusp of his career as a professional athlete being less important than his life on talk shows or in photoshoots. But looking back on his career that spans over two decades, the man had it (mostly) figured out. There were certainly highs and lows, but ultimately no one conquered football, and the world of sports at large, quite like David. As he walked off the pitch one last time, it’s clear how much he loved the game. [GIFs by Dale con Comba]
I, for one, am very OK with this casting choice! Kevin Kline as Errol Flynn is a total no-brainer. He channeled the swashbuckling Doug Fairbanks so wonderfully in Attenborough’s CHAPLIN that he’s really the only choice in my mind to play a middle-aged Flynn.
