Lukas Podolski is to star in a comedy film called 'Macho Man'. Yes. Really.
The film, based on a novel by Moritz Netenjakob, will hand the German forward his acting debut - and boy is it long-awaited.
"The film will be shot in my hometown Cologne, where I grew up and where my career started," Podolski attempted to explain.
"My scene takes place in the stadium and it’s really funny, I think. ‘I am curious to see the result when I go to the premiere and see myself on the screen."
