Tinie Tempah is in talks to make his acting debut.
Speaking the The Daily Star he revealed that he had been in talks with actor and producer Noel Clarke about a role in a forthcoming flick.
Tinie said: 'It's sounding like the best movie Noel's done by far. It's very international and there's a lot going on. Work schedule permitting, I'm definitely down for the role. I know my part.'
He continued: 'I always said, if I ever get involved in acting I never wanted it to be a cliched role. I really wanted to get into a different character, so fingers crossed it'll work out. The part was written especially for me, which is cool. I met up with Noel at his agency and he explained how much of a big fan he is and now he's been watching my videos.
'He said he based the character on what he knows I'd be capable of doing. Once I read the script it made perfect sense, my sense of humour and everything. It was very thoughtful and I'm flattered of course.'
Tinie said he'd been inspired by other popstars who have ventured into acting.
'Plan B is a perfect example of someone who had made the move. When you watch a film he's been in you don't think 'it's Plan B - The Movie'. It's the same with Justin Timberlake.'
