Thierry Henry is set for his big screen debut


Football fans and admirers together remembered the brilliant career of Arsenal forward Thierry Henry, as he bid adieu to all forms of football some days earlier. However, he will continue to enthrall us with his skills in the commentary box, through a pact with Sky Sports — and will reportedly act in the upcoming movie Entourage, following after the hit TV series of the same name.

The Frenchman, considered one of the greatest strikers in the English Premier League history, quit football about two weeks back, ending his career at the New York Red Bulls. He played a pivotal part in the famous “Invincibles” Arsenal team in the 2003-04 season, and in course of time became the highest goal-scorer for the club. He is also the highest goal-scorer for his national team France, when he surpassed the legendary Michel Platini in October 2007.

And now, the prolific goal-scorer is going to appear on the big screen. Only a week ago, Henry posted a meme of himself with part of the Entourage cast:

However, this is not the first time he has acted. Of course, this will be his debut in big screen, but he famously acted in the Renault Vivo advertisements as well, popularising the term “va-va-vroom”!

Henry will apparently play himself out walking his dog for a very short while, while he has an exchange with character Ari Gold (played by Jeremy Piven). Piven complemented Henry on his acting skills via Twitter.

To which Henry replied the following:

So it seems it won’t be just about football with the iconic Thierry Henry from now on! More cameos wanted, please.
