Former Chelsea striker Adrian Mutu is reportedly being lined up to appear in a video alongside American rapper Snoop Dogg.
The 35-year-old, who is currently playing for Romanian side Petrolul Ploiesti, has been tipped by director Massimo Caroletti to embark on a career in showbiz.
"So far I've used other actors in the videos we've made, but I found that Mutu has great potential," the Daily Mail quotes Caroletti as saying. "I've personally championed Adrian's inclusion, and the whole team sees him as a good candidate.
"I've known [Mutu] for two years and we've built a friendship that grows stronger every day. I respect him very much because he is sincere and serious person. From my point of view, his future is in showbiz."
During Mutu's time at Chelsea, he was banned for seven months for failing a drugs test.
