Though Gazza could be jailed tomorrow when he appears before a Justice of the Peace to be sentenced for drink driving, he seems to keen on taking up acting as a new profession.
“I need to get well to take on the role. This is my last chance at getting my life sorted and having a career as an actor. It was a favourite film of mine,” The Sun quoted Gazza, as saying.
Former Wimbledon midfielder Jones, 45, said: “I’d love to get him involved if he’s straightened himself out a bit.” (ANI)
