Olly Murs' action movie ambition

Olly Murs has acting ambitions

Olly Murs has revealed he wants to be the next big thing in the world of action movies.

The Troublemaker singer hopes to show off his acting credentials and give Jason Statham a run for his money.

Brit-nominated Olly told The Sun: "I could be a bad***. I could be like a Jason Statham.

"I love action films. I'd love to do acting at some point in the future. Now it's music, but it's all about progression."

The Essex boy may have ambitions to be the next Sly Stallone, but something else may be more up his street - a part in the rumoured The Only Way Is Essex movie.

But Olly revealed he has never watched the ITV2 show.

He said: "I've never watched TOWIE. If you live in Essex you tend to hate it because it's not really a true representation of who we are."

Olly's already made moves to start an acting career, and will make an appearance in US TV show 90210.

He plays himself in the show, which is due to air in April.

Last month, the Xtra Factor presenter revealed: "In 90210 I'm playing myself in a scene performing for a girl who likes me."
