Kasabian's Tom Meighan - who has been offered a film role by Sofia Coppola in the past - could one day win an Oscar, according to his bandmate

Tom Meighan is a great actor.

The Kasabian frontman - who previously turned down a role as a count in the Sofia Coppola-directed 'Marie Antoinette' because of his commitments to the group - will one day amaze everyone with his on-screen prowess, claims his bandmate Serge Pizzorno.

The group's guitarist, Serge Pizzorno, reckons Tom will one day surprise everyone with his acting ability, though to date he has only been offered one film role, which he had to turn down to concentrate on the group.

Of Tom's proposed role in 'Marie Antoinette', Serge said: "It is true, they wanted him to play the role. It was pretty mental. I think we'll definitely see Tom in something one day.

"He's the sort of person who'll win an Oscar one day and you'll be like, 'What?' He's great at that stuff."

Tom may have to put his film career off for a time yet, however, as he recently said he thinks Kasabian are about to peak and will be around for some time to come.

He said: "The best thing is about our band, is that we get to make a fourth album, and I think the fourth album will be our peak, and I think we'll be around for another ten or fifteen, years, we'll be around for a while."
