Movie stars want to be athletes, and athletes want to be movie stars. But one athlete may be making the jump to a screen near you as a different kind of movie star. A porn star, in fact.

According to The Independent (British news) Cameroon international defender, and former Tottenham Hotspur defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto, is reportedly eyeing a career in the adult film industry rather than continuing his soccer career.

Some of the highlights from Twitter:

The 33-year-old defender has played for five club teams in England and France over his 13-year professional career, and has made 24 appearances for Cameroon, including two trips to the World Cup.

He has scored eight goals in his domestic career, but has never scored a goal in international play.

Maybe he is just looking for a way to get more touches of the ball(s). /Badumtish/

Here is a look at Mr. Assou-Ekotto for any of you ladies (or men) who might be interested in checking out some of his future work.

Amazingly, this isn’t the first porn-soccer related incident in recent memory. From The Independent story linked to above:

Last season, the Brazilian centre-back Anderson Conceicao made headlines when he revealed that former Real Mallorca manager Joaquin Caparros used pornography to try and motivate his players before a La Liga game against Athletic Bilbao.

“In the team talk ahead of the game Caparros showed us a video with images from a porn film. We were shocked, we didn’t understand anything of what we were watching.

“He told us: ‘On the pitch, you need to play as hard as this guy’, and he pointed at the screen.”
