Reports in Italy are claiming that former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti is set to make a cameo appearance in the upcoming Star Trek sequel, according to the Metro.
The movie, Star Trek Beyond, is due for release in July 2016 and coincides with the 50th anniversary of the show, and according to Italian publication Corriere della Sera the Italian will feature as an alien-examining doctor.
The report states that Ancelotti was put forward for the role due to his friendship with actress Zoe Saldana, who is also in the film as Nyota Uhura.
Ancelotti is currently taking some time out from football management after being let go by Real Madrid at the end of the 2014/15 campaign, and is said to have already filmed his scene in the movie in Vancouver, where his wife Mariann is from (via Metro).
Quite whether this will lead to future roles remains to be seen, but it will certainly be a thrill to see the silky Italian tactician on the big screen.
