It must be very frustrating to be a hard-working young actor or actress in Hollywood these days, as there is a lot of competition for roles from fellow actors all trying to land a decent role to pay the bills. Not only that but it seems that everyone fancies themselves as an actor or actress these days, with models and singers all deciding to try their hand at acting, making it even more difficult for aspiring actors.
It has now been claimed that One Direction hunk Harry Styles could be the latest star to make the move from music to acting, as he has supposedly been lined up for a role in the big screen adaptation of the hit musical Wicked. Harry has made a huge impression on the people who matter in Hollywood, with Universal Pictures keen to get him on board for the Wicked movie.
A supposed source told The Sun, "Harry is very focused on his singing career but there’s a real buzz about him. Movie makers see him as a new Zac Efron and think he would be a perfect casting for a movie musical. He’s top of the Wicked team’s wish list to play the romantic lead role of Fiyero – who becomes The Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz."
Meanwhile, Hollywood big wig Harvey Weinstein has also got his eye on the One Direction star, insisting that he would love to make Harry Styles a Hollywood superstar over the course of the next few years. However, Harvey and the rest of Hollywood will have to wait, as One Direction are preparing to head off on their huge Where We Are stadium tour this year.
Do you think Harry Styles has what it takes to become a Hollywood superstar?
