"At 37, Tom knows he only has a few seasons left before retirement," an insider told Star magazine. "He's thinking ahead and believes he could become a huge movie star."
They added: "He's used to being a superstar. After winning the Super Bowl again, he's thinking about new challenges outside of football."
Tom already has a few projects under his belt, landing two roles in upcoming summer blockbusters Ted 2 and Entourage.
Actor Mark Wahlberg also vouched for his football co-star's talent recently, saying: "Tom is in the movie. He plays himself, but he does an amazing job. Funny, funny moment."
Let's hope they can make it through the transition!
