VIDEO SPECIAL: New Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti as you've never seen him before

Expect plenty of theatrics during Carlo Ancelotti's reign at Chelsea if his movie cameos are anything to go by. The new Blues boss might have made his name in the world of football - but he has also appeared on the silver screen. Ancelotti, who left AC Milan this week to take over at Stamford Bridge, has featured in three football-themed films. Man of many talents: Carlo Ancelotti is not just a football guy The Italian's most notable role was as part of a team of devils who took on a side of angels in the 1983 release Don Camillo, which starred Terence Hill. 'In Don Camillo, I play for a communist football team owned by the village mayor Peppone, the great rival of Don Camillo,' revealed Ancelotti. 'It was just a football match between angels and demons. I was really happy to be in this film as Don Camillo was born in Brescello, just 10 kilometres from where I was born. 'It is a story well known in my area of Emilia-Romagna. I have great memories of that experience, even if I was able to speak to Terence Hill for only five minutes. But we are talking about a film that is 25 years old!' Watch Ancelotti below in Don Camillo - he comes on a sub just over four minutes into this clip and there's some outrageous fouling around the six minute mark... Ancelotti, who has also popped up in Mezzo estro, mezzo sinistro and L'Allenatore nel pallone, is a huge fan of films - but insists that football has always come first in his life. 'For me, if I have the choice between a good film and a good match, I take the match - no hesitation,' he added. 'No two games are ever the same, they are unique and live. You can watch a movie 10 times, and nothing will change in relation to the first time.'  Chelsea's new boss Ancelotti in his own words: The owner can ask questions but I pick the team and decide how we playAncelotti's Chelsea suicide note: Carlo lets fly in new book but revelations fail to scupper move to Stamford Bridge MARTIN SAMUEL: Blues must follow FA lead and give Carlo his own menCHELSEA FC
