SNATCH (1999) hardman VINNIE JONES is helping out the British postal service by appearing in their advertisements.
The soccer star turned actor will pick up $195,000 (£150,000) to strut his stuff in a commercial for the POST OFFICE. Vinnie will be seen entering a Post Office, scaring staff who believe he wants to rob the building and shocks them when he takes out his wallet to open a savings account.
A post office employee says, "We're delighted to have landed Vinnie. The ad is a bit of a spoof of his roles in LOCK, STOCK and Snatch and it will be a big boost to out campaign." (ES/WNTSU)
