David Beckham Snubbed By “The Simpsons”

59069098David 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]
