Yes, this is a TV/movie-related website but we can't ignore a worldwide event as huge and popular as the World Cup... coming soon, in June 2018. But let's keep a cinematic angle to the event and ask the following question:

Which of the following soccer/football players expected to play in the next World Cup should seriously think of a reconversion in the movies (at least looks-wise)?

Abate, Johnson and Podolski played in previous World Cups, but won't participate in the next one. Other than the looks, what would be their qualification to switch to movies? For acting abilities, maybe Cristiano Ronaldo. Or Luis Suarez could revive the role of a famous James Bond villain...

Maybe the question would be better about a biography movie. Don't think they got what it takes to be an actor.

i know, that's why I insisted on the looks :) I don't think their biopics would be very interesting anyhow (except maybe the Top 2)

Is the idea that they should be good-looking? Or should they have a particular look?

You wouldn't believe how superficial my mindset was when I made this poll, yeah, it's about looks... they don't have to be good though, only appealing in a way or another.

Some of the Icelandic players may be available for Viking shows or superhero movies.

I always thought that Mats Hummels looks like a musketeer.

And if they ever make a live-action version of The Simpsons, David Luiz should totally be Sideshow Bob.

I don't think Cesc Fábregas or David Villa will play the next World Cup either. Fábregas has not been called during the last year, and Villa was absent in the last matches of the qualifiers.

Javier Hernández will be there for Mexico, but I don't think you want him for his looks https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3971039/mediaviewer/rm1079585536
