Fortunately, however, his wife's career is having no such bad luck: Victoria Beckham will be appearing on the ABC hit, Ugly Betty, later this year.
In a role that requires giant boobs, trashy clothing and no acting talent, Posh Spice will portray herself, as she'll appear as a celebrity bridesmaid at the wedding of Wilhelmina Slater (Vanessa Williams) and publisher Bradford Meade (Alan Dale) in an upcoming episode.
As People magazine reports, this promises to be an active few months for Beckham, who has already launched her own fashion label and line of fragrances.
Then, of course, she'll join Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and the rest of the Spice Girls as they regroup for a two-month, 11-show world tour that no one will care about.
