Pierce Brosnan wants to star in a musical about Bruce Springsteen.
The 55-year-old actor - who debuts his vocal talents in the ABBA-inspired musical 'Mamma Mia!' - has got the taste for singing on screen, and is keen to take on the challenge of performing Springsteen's most famous tracks.
Pierce told BANG Showbiz: "I'd love to see a musical of Springsteen songs. His songs have got such imagery and poetry. I would like to star in it - I'd have a crack at it. I really enjoyed doing 'Mamma Mia!' so why not? In for a penny, in for a pound!"
Pierce's 'Mamma Mia!' co-star Colin Firth had another suggestion for a band-based musical.
He laughed: "My son suggested Radiohead, but I don't think that's particularly upbeat - it wouldn't have people dancing in the aisles!"
'Mamma Mia!' is released worldwide later this month.
