DAVID Beckham, Lady Gaga and Usain Bolt were all wanted to appear in ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’.
Samuel L Jackson, who stars as Richmond Valentine in the spy action film, has revealed the famous trio were originally lined up to star in the movie by director Matthew Vaughn.
Asked whether the Beckham speculation was accurate, Jackson said, “I think so, yes. In the original script, there was him, Lady Gaga and Usain Bolt. Matthew had grand ideas about all these people. I actually ran into Beckham in the street one day and asked him if he was going to do the movie and he was like, ‘I don’t know, I’m not an actor.’ I said, ‘Dude, they want you to play you!’”
Jackson also spoke in glowing terms of his ‘Kingsman’ co-star Colin Firth. The 66-year-old actor told the Metro newspaper, “He’s a really well-rounded person with a great sense of humour who can laugh at himself.” – BANG!
