Vinnie Jones has to support Arsenal for U.S. show

Posted by - January 17, 2013 - MLS & US

Whilst Vinnie Jones presumably has little problem acting in a role that demands him to be a psychotic, hardman killer, but his latest role may have caused him a few sleepless nights… Jones has to pretend to be a diehard Arsenal fan.

The former Welsh international and Wimbledon, Leeds and Chelsea midfielder is playing the role of Sebastien Moran in US drama Elementary, based on the Sherlock Holmes novels.

Jones is forced to lay it on thick during the programme, declaring that he once went to prison for a “misunderstanding with a Manchester United fan who was running around slagging off the Arsenal.”

It’s all slightly twee, to be honest.
