Singer would love to star in a comedy


Jay Sean wants to try his hand at acting. 

The British singer-songwriter, 28, reckons he’s got the talent to succeed in Hollywood.

‘My single Down is big in LA,’ Jay – born Kamaljeet Singh Jhooti in Hounslow – tells Now.

‘I’m quite well known there, so I’d love that to lead to some acting.

‘I know the singer-turned-actor thing is a cliché, but I did acting at school. I’d love to do a comedy. I like taking the piss out of myself!’

But Jay – who counts Leonardo DiCaprio as one of his fans – isn’t interested in starring in a reality programme.  

‘I hope not,’ he says. ‘I’ve been offered shows like that but, even if this all came to an end, I’d never be that desperate to stay famous.’
