The Wanted singer Tom Parker has no interest in appearing in movies.

The Wanted's Tom Parker would never consider a move from music into acting.

Tom and his bandmates Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness and Nathan Sykes announced a hiatus in 2014, stating they will work together again in the future. They're all doing their own thing for now, with Jay appearing on British TV show Strictly Come Dancing and Nathan releasing solo music. While Siva and Max have expressed an interest in acting, it's something Tom is completely against.

"Me, act?!" he laughed to Britain's OK! magazine. "My girlfriend (Kelsey Hardwick) is an actress and she thinks that I can act but I'm like: 'No way!'

"I've been in the studio loads working on solo material, just taking my time. I want to get everything right."

Meanwhile Max has been making his acting dreams come true with a role in musical TV show Glee before it wrapped earlier this year (15). Now he's had a taste, he'd like to collaborate with some seriously big stars.

"At the moment, Tom Hardy," he recently told us.hellomagazine.com. "I met him a couple of times, but only very briefly. Once was at Elton John’s house a few years ago for a huge charity dinner. I just think (Tom) has done so well in every role he plays, whether it’s a love interest or playing a Batman villain. He plays it brilliantly."

And it seems Siva would love to follow in Max's TV footsteps, albeit with a slightly grittier role. "My dream role is to be in something like True Detective," he admitted to MailOnline. 'I wouldn't mind playing a bad cop because everyone wants to be the bad guy sometimes."

It's not yet known when The Wanted will reunite, but they've said they're still keen to perform together.
