During an interview with Billboard, the British singer opened up about everything from his future tour plans to, of course, album number two. What you might not have expected, however, was talk about a potential acting career, and spoiler alert, he’s into the idea.
Malik admitted that acting is something he’d definitely like to get into.
“I do, yeah,” Malik told Billboard about having an interest in acting.
The “Pillowtalk” singer revealed that he wouldn’t just sign on for any project — particularly anything too commercial.
“It would have to be a good script and something that was a bit different, like an art movie,” Malik further explained when speaking about going down that path. “Something people wouldn’t expect.”
Although the former One Direction singer would want to do something unexpected, we’re not that surprised, because his entire career has been about expecting the unexpected. Now all we need to know is what director is looking for a broody, artistic male lead, and then Malik would be a perfect fit.
What do you think Malik fans, would you like to see him cross over into the acting world?
