Basic footballing instinct
The ex-England striker, who has become famous for his exploits off and on the pitch, joined the cast of Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction during filming in the UK.
His cameo will see him seduced by Stone and then literally stabbed in the back.
As well as the return of the Casino star Stone the sequel will feature Charlotte Rampling (Angel Heart, Zardoz), David Thewlis (The Big Lebowski, Naked) and David Morrissey.
Collymore will, no doubt, be hoping that his performance will lead to a repeat of the success of fellow footballers-turned-actors Vinnie Jones and Eric Cantona.
After Jones' debut in Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels he has gone on to star in Gone In 60 Seconds and Swordfish. He is also set to appear in the third X-Men film as the villain Juggernaut.
Cantona, meanwhile, has starred in a string of French films including Le Bonheur Est Dans Le Pre and Les Enfants Du Marais, along with a part in Elizabeth with Cate Blanchett and Geoffrey Rush.
