Ross: I could be next Hugh Grant

Jonathan Ross has joked that wife Jane Goldman wants him to be in one of her films

Jonathan Ross has joked that his screenwriter wife Jane Goldman "begs and pleads" for him to star in her films.

But the chat show host and funnyman said despite The Woman In Black writer Jane's requests, he is just too busy with his TV work.

"She's always asking me. She'll write these parts, these young romantic leads, these Hugh Grant types, and she begs and pleads and I have to let her down. I'm sorry, because TV's gain is the film world's loss," he teased.

"I have been in a few movies - I was in the Spice World movie and also if you look very closely I'm an extra in a film called The Rise And Fall Of Idi Amin. I play an Israeli soldier - you can see me if you look hard enough."

Jonathan said he was "so proud" of Jane, who also has writing credits on X-Men: First Class, The Debt and Kick-Ass.

"I'm so excited to see her success and it has nothing to do with me. It's completely her hard work and dedication. She's one of the most sought-after screenwriters in the business so it's tremendously exciting," he added.
