Hi there, I'm Lauren Bradshaw. Tom Cruise wants to turn David Beckham into an an action star! We've got the story and your look at last night's UK premiere for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol in today's PopSugar Rush. When it comes to being an action star, Tom Cruise is a total pro. The A-lister has appeared in multiple films over the years, doing his own stunts no less, and now it seems he's ready to show friend David Beckham the ropes. Tom hit the carpet at last night's UK premiere for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol where he spoke to the Mirror about David, saying: "I'd love to do action movies with Beckham. He would be great, he could kick ass." Up to this point, the long-time friend of Tom has only been a star on the soccer field, so could a film career be in his future? PopSugar editor TK is here with more. David has been asked about his acting plans in the past, and he swears he has absolutely no interest in Hollywood, despite his link to Tom. But who knows — maybe Tom could persuade him! Perhaps Tom could even find a place for David in the Mission Impossible franchise . . . When Jeremy Renner first came on board for Mission Impossible, there was all this speculation that he was going to be Tom Cruise's successor, but Tom told reporters at the premiere that he has no set plans just yet to retire from the series. TOM: I don't know, I don't know. It's the first film that I ever produced, so I really enjoy producing them, and I enjoy making them and acting in them, so to be here and it's the fourth one, is quite amazing, so we'll see where we're going to go from there. You can see Tom as Ethan Hunt once more when Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol comes to theaters on Friday.
