Javier Bardem is worried his hopes of a Glee cameo could be dashed, as he can't sing very well.

The Oscar-winning Spanish actor is desperate to appear on the hit TV show and he and creator Ryan Murphy have planned a rock star character for him to play, but he's worried his poor vocal skills mean it's just a pipe dream.

Javier told E! News: "I want to do it. I want to do it! I told Ryan several times I want to play this heavy metal rock 'n' roll star, but I don't think he has the guts to do it. No, of course he does - because I sing really bad. I think that's the whole point."

He added: "We had a blast figuring out what I could be... but I haven't received any script. So when am I appearing on Glee? I don't know."

Javier is tipped for another Oscar nomination for his new film Biutiful, from Babel director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, about a father with cancer who is trying to get his life in order before he dies.

But the star of The Coen Brothers' No Country For Old Men is taking the hype with a pinch of salt.

He said: "I've done movies where I thought it was going to get massive attention and they did s***.

"When I was killing people with my cattle gun in Texas with that horrible haircut in the hand of those crazy brothers, I was like, 'who in the world is going to watch this?'."
