Harry Styles Turns Movie Star?

The One Direction Singer’s Tipped To Play Mick Jagger…

There’s no denying he’s got the hair like Jagger – but has Harry Styles got it what it takes to play the Rolling Stones legend on the big screen?

According to The People, the floppy-fringed One Direction singer is in the running to star as the rocker in a new movie.

“Harry on stage can pass as a dead ringer for Jagger,” a source told The People.

“If he can transform this image into a movie role then he’s going to be a serious candidate to get the part. The signs so far are good.”

But, if he does bag the ambitious film role - how would the 18-year-old balance being a movie star AND a member of one of the hottest boy bands on the planet?

"The film is going to be a lot of work and very demanding,” added the source.

“If Harry takes the part it will lead to concerns about his involvement with One Direction.

“The band is his main priority but it is flattering to have so much interest from such senior people in the film industry– he couldn’t miss this opportunity.”

Meanwhile, the Brit five piece appear to have started work on their hotly-anticipated second album!

Filling in diehard Directioners on their time in the recording studio, member Niall Horan tweeted,

“Great day soo far in the studio!! Got some crackin tunes on the way!.. its been a while since we’ve been in the studio.. great t be back.”(sic).

Followed by,

“Another amazing day in studio with rami,carl and @savan_kotecha , got some sick tunes for next album, and for you to hear worldwide on tour.”
