Ed Sheeran to portray a homeless drug addict in action-comedy film

Ed Sheeran is about to play a homeless drug addict in a new action-comedy film which will no doubt serve as a surprise to the fans of the 32-year-old father-of-two.

He will star opposite Denise van Outen, Jennifer Saunders, Jaime Winstone, Peter Serafinowicz and Kevin Bishop in a big screen adventure that was filmed in London last year, according to reports.

Titled “Sumotherhood”, the film was written and directed by Adam Deacon who was a star of the films Kidulthood, Brotherhood and Anuvahood

The singer has appeared in an episode of Game of Thrones, Home and Away, The Simpsons and Bridget Jones’s Baby.

Ed is said to play this bloke who’s not got a home and looks like a crack addict.

According to a source, “It was filmed a while ago, but work on the movie is almost complete and the hope is it will be out this year.

“The casting makes it an intriguing one and in particular, everyone wants to see Ed. He doesn’t have a massive part in the film and although fans will recognise him straight away, they’ve never seen him looking like this.”
