Wayne Rooney Makes Horrifically Wooden Appearance In Hilarious X-Men Ad


The debate has been raging on over the past week as to whether Wayne Rooney should become an out-and-out attacking midfielder for club and country.

What Roy Hodgson decides for the Manchester United star at the Euros remains to be seen, but one role we’re certain Wayne should be nowhere near is anything that involves acting.

And this isn’t even the first time Wayne has flirted with being a thespian…

Solid performance from Ryan Giggs there, although he’s probably no stranger to putting on a performance.

I’m also not entirely sure that was really Patrice Evra’s voice, but Wayne…at least he tried.

And scene
