Carlo Ancelotti boldly goes where no manager has gone before

Carlo Ancelotti swapped the dugout for the big screen after featuring in the latest Star Trek film.

To say this one has come out of the blue is a bit of an understatement. Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly set to appear in the latest installment of the Star Trek movie franchise.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Ancelotti spent the past week filming his cameo appearance in Star Trek Beyond in Vancouver as he continues to take time out from football after being sacked by Real Madrid at the end of last season.

Not exactly famed for his acting chops, Ancelotti will reportedly be tasked with playing a doctor alongside the movie's main stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Simon Pegg.

The 56-year-old former Chelsea coach landed his small role as a doctor through his slightly unlikely friendship with Hollywood actress Zoe Saldana, who plays Lieutenant Uhura.

Incredible. Truly incredible.
