Groban: Allen's the top director

Josh Groban has revealed he would like a role in a Woody Allen film.

The Californian-born singer has appeared in TV shows such as Ally McBeal, Glee and the US version of The Office as well as in big-screen romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid Love.

"I would very much like to do more acting. I would like to work with someone like Paul Thomas Anderson or Wes Anderson, but Woody Allen would probably be top of my list. He's the man," he said.

Josh - who is touring around the UK from June 14 - joked that Woody has already dropped him a hint about appearing in his next film.

"I met him briefly. He directed an LA opera production and I was there on the opening night. We also go to Knicks games - not together - but I always see him there," he recalled.

"We've shared an elevator at Madison Square Garden a few times and he gave me his Knicks towel to wave around. I'll take that little gift as an open invitation to star in his next movie."

Josh revealed he loves playing characters different to himself.

"The music side is so serious for me, I like doing comedies. I like doing stuff where I can really play against type and be silly," he said.

"I would like to play a bad guy. I think that would be really fun. I really like making people laugh and I like characters that are a bit off-the-wall. The character I played in Crazy, Stupid Love was a real douchebag but he was really fun to play, because I've known that guy."
