Chelsea star Ashley Cole is set to take to the silver screen with an acting role in a new football film.
According to a report in The Sun, the England defender is to appear as himself in a football documentary drama titled Played, which will also feature cameos from West Ham boss Sam Allardyce and England international Joe Cole.
West Ham fan Danny Dyer is to play the lead role of a football agent.
A source told the paper said: "The plot follows a football agent and how he goes about his business while living the Premier League lifestyle.
"It features a few dodgy scenarios including underhand transfers and sleeping around with different women.
"They want it to be as authentic as possible, so that's why they were keen to include player and manager cameos.
"The script is done and auditions have already started.
"It will be set all over London with some scenes taking place at stadiums and football grounds."
