Beckham to Be on Simpsons Afterall

Simpsons News — Posted 05 Dec, 2003 by MrBurns

We reported not too long ago that world famous soccer player David Beckham was rejected by Simpsons producers to be a guest on the show (Read). Looks like they changed their minds. The 28-year-old Real Madrid star is set to take a cameo role as himself in the cartoon series.

The decision to feature him is a U-turn for the show's makers who just eight months said he wasn't well enough known to be offered a part.

Executive producer Al Jean said at the time: "We thought about Becks but soccer isn't big in the States. He's not really famous enough. I've heard of him because my daughter plays soccer."

Producers changed their mind after Beckham and wife Victoria (Posh Spice) raised their profile in the US with a publicity tour of New York and Los Angeles in the summer. Read the story Here.
