David Beckham is athletic, beautiful to look at, a style icon, happily married with adorable children, blah blah blah. It would seem that he has it all, but there’s one special famous-person privilege he is being denied: he won’t be voicing a guest role on “The Simpsons” any time soon.
Insanely, the soccer star was deemed not famous enough by the producers to warrant a guest spot on the show, despite engaging in discussions. Executive producer Al Jean said, “I had to phone David Beckham to tell him sorry. I didn’t think he was a big enough star for an American audience. I get a lot of grief about that.” Beckham has had movies named after him and is besties with Tom Cruise, what else do “The Simpsons” want?? Actually, now that we think of it, we’ve heard the man talk and his voice is not his finest attribute. Good call. [Photo: GettyImages]
