Katy Perry to audition for Vin Diesel movie?

Feb 24 2014, 3:26am CST | by

Katy Perry is set to audition for a role in Vin Diesel's new movie.

The 'Roar' hitmaker could be turning her hand at acting after talking to the Hollywood actor-and-producer about a role in the 'xXx' action franchise.

Vin, 46, recently hinted he is considering the songstress - who has previously had a voice role in 'The Smurfs' movies - for the female lead role and it now appears Katy could indeed be in line for the part.

The 'Fast & Furious' star wrote on Facebook last month: "As you know, the new XXX script finally comes in next month...and just this morning people are suggesting Katy Perry as the new X girl. (sic)"

A casting source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Everyone is a bit shocked, but Katy has been told she can come and try out for the part.

"The audition is lined up for the next few weeks - depending on Katy's schedule."

The 29-year-old singer voiced her admiration for Vin after he posted a webcam clip of him dancing to her hit single 'Dark Horse', as well as Beyonce's 'Drunk in Love', last month.

She tweeted: "YES VIN DIESEL (sic)"

Katy wouldn't be the first pop star to catch Vin's eye as he previously asked Rita Ora to make a cameo in last year's 'Fast & Furious 6', which was filmed largely in the 'R.I.P.' hitmaker's hometown London.

The Hollywood star praised Rita, saying: "I was out one night and was introduced to her. We were looking for someone to kick off the most quintessential race in the movie.

"We wanted somebody who represented today's London and have that presence to kick off a race of that style and she was just perfect and she was game to do it. We were lucky to get her and we were lucky that she came in and kicked butt."

This Soulful Singer is Leading a '90s Music Revival

Capital Summertime Ball - Photocall
While the ’80s music revival has seen no shortage of evangelists (Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Daft Punk, Robyn, Haim), the ’90s sound—muddled by every genre from new jack swing to g-funk—is only on the brink of resurrection. Kiesza is one artist set to lead the blitz. “My mom was obsessed with ’90s music,” says the 25-year-old Canadian, who, prior to cutting her singer-songwriter teeth at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, trained as a bal ...

Katy Perry Media Call
YouTube recently compiled a list of the platform’s most-played music videos worldwide for the first half of 2014.

Shakira takes both second and third place with her Rihanna-featuring ...

"Guardians Of The Galaxy" - Photocall
Sheer dresses can either look really good, orrrrrr…. Well, guess Katy Perry and Zoe Saldana have shown how it’s gone not so right. From the Dark Horse singer’s slime green see-through number to Zoe’s baby bump distracting frock, we were far from impressed. Especially since we know they’re capable of pulling out standout outfits! Sigh. We can only hope they have some better luck next week. CLICK HERE to see the gallery, "Worst Dressed Celebs Of The Week!" CLICK HERE to se ...

Katy Perry Media Call
Back in June, it was reported that Katy Perry was going to mock Mariah Carey and her diva antics in her upcoming music video, but this rumor was quickly shot down. This isn't the first time that Katy Perry had tried to come for Mariah, as she had previously slammed her back in March, referring to the pop superstar as a "throwback." Even though these comments had seemingly come out of nowhere, could there be more to this story?Iggy Azalea is currently gearing ...

Katy Perry's green hair was one thing. But now, according to various blogs and comment boards, KP has simply gone to far by rocking some sort of weird green body-stocking thing while touring a Canadian "pioneer village" earlier this week. Apparently, Katy was under the impression that being in a 19th Century-themed park north of the border meant she was free to toss on whatever freakish text ...
