David Beckham & Robbie Williams
It has been reported that British singer Robbie Williams and LA Galaxy soccer star David Beckham are going to star in hit TV show ‘Desperate Housewives’ as a gay couple.

Beckham and Williams, who are both living in Los Angeles, are show creator Marc Cherry’s top choices to play the best friends of another gay couple – who are the latest characters to move into Wisteria Lane.

Cherry says, “David and Robbie are perfect to star as the new neighbors’ best friends; the gorgeous, eccentric couple flown over from Britain.

“We haven’t had that kind of wow for the wives since Jesse Metcalfe left and we want it to cause such a stir when they turn out to be together.

“David’s keen, but though the obvious choice was to work with Tom Cruise, we wanted someone who matches him in height and well, Britishness, so Robbie is the one. They’re both funny, game for a laugh and ridiculously macho, so it should work wonderfully… the English are pitch-perfect for sending themselves up.”
