Carlo Ancelotti has taken centre stage for a number of Europe’s biggest clubs over the years, both as player and manager.  However, now the Italian manager is set for a rather different role, in the next Star Trek film.

While the Bayern Munich not-seat awaits Ancelotti, the 56-year-old former Chelsea boss has been keeping himself busy by bagging a cameo role, as a doctor, in the new Star Trek Beyond’ movie, which is set for release in July.

Ancelloti explained to Sky Sports News recently that he landed role via a friend, who happens to be the husband of actress Zoe Saldana (‘Uhura’ in the new film). The Italian explained:

The husband of actress Zoe Saldana is Italian and I have a good relationship with the family. They were in Vancouver to film the movie and they asked me to come and watch.

I went, spoke to the director [Justin Lin] and he said ‘I’ll put you in – small part’.

Here’s the interview (albeit not great quality!)…

Ancelotti will feature in the film alongside the likes of  Chris Pine and Idris Elba. Although a far bigger challenge awaits him in the Bundesliga, where he’ll be under pressure to continue Bayern’s Pep Guardiola-inspired domestic domination as well as mounting a serious Champions League challenge.

Let’s hope he lives long and prospers at the Allianz Arena.
