Cristiano Ronaldo lined up to star alongside Angelina Jolie in TV drama

Having conquered the world of football, Cristiano Ronaldo now appears to be turning his attention to acting.

According to reports, the Real Madrid superstar has signed up to appear in a new TV drama about Syrian refugees called "Hayat Koprusu" alongside Oscar winner Angelina Jolie.

Ronaldo has made no secret of his ambition to get into acting in the past and is set to start filming the series -- which focuses on a Syrian family fleeing the civil war for Turkey -- in April.

"There will be appearances from actors and actresses from all over the world including Cristiano Ronaldo, Angelina Jolie and [Arabic music star] Nancy Ajram," director Eyup Dirlik said, according to Sky News.
