David Beckham’s skin and teeth are looking a little worse for wear in a photo he posted to Instagram on Tuesday.
The footballer/model/fashion magnate has a cameo in the new Guy Ritchie film about King Arthur, out on May 12.
Ritchie is said to have adopted a pop culture-tinged approach to the fantasy tale, which Beckham’s presence typifies. Film Divider also reports that football puns have been written for the scene.
Beckham is said to express disbelief that young Arthur is able to pull off the famous feat. “There’s a little bit of a sense that Beckham’s character, who fancies himself a big player in this story, gets a little ticked off when this other fellow, this upstart, is the one who can free the sword,” reports the site.
Beckham last worked with Ritchie in an H&M ad for his underwear line.
