0326_arion_foster_wade_williams_gettyHouston Texans running back Arian Foster just completed his FIRST role in a major Hollywood movie -- and it went so well, his co-stars say he might have a serious future in acting. 

The movie is "Draft Day" -- about an NFL GM who's gunning to land the #1 draft pick -- and it's packed with huge actors like Kevin Costner, Jennifer Garner and Diddy. 

Foster plays a potential draft pick ... and according to his co-star Wade Williams, he CRUSHED IT. 

"Arian was very natural and enthusiastic," Wade says ... "[the producers] weren't gonna hire him if he couldn't act."

Wade knows what he's talking about -- he's been in a ton of movies and TV shows, including "Prison Break," where he starred as the main guard.

"He's a very talented actor. After the NFL he definitely could be a sportscaster or even act full-time."

As for Arian's role, Wade says it's nothing to sneeze at -- "It's not the lead, but it's a nice part."

Williams says in the end, he was very impressed -- "He was really into it.  He went for it ... and he couldn't be more handsome, that rat bastard!" Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
