Taron Egerton as a leading man in a musical movie? SIGN US UP!
The Sing star dished in a recent interview that he’d love to star in a movie musical one day (and we hope it’s soon!).
“I’d done it before,” he shared about singing in the animated movie, Sing. “I’d done, like, amateur musicals and I’d done choral singing at school, but I think it was at [drama school] Rada where I first had that validation and someone actually saying, ‘You know, you can sing’. And I go, ‘OK, I can sing!’ That was the first time I remember feeling that way.”
Taron added that he even got the lead in a school musical and definitely enjoyed it.
“Now I’m desperate to do a musical, and I’m trying to find one,” Taron confessed. Or find someone who will let me do one. I mean, it’s about someone presenting me with an opportunity really, but I’d bite their hand off if they did. I think it’s about time we had some.”
We do need more, especially after the brilliance of La La Land!
Illumination also just announced that a sequel to Sing – Sing 2 — will be coming on Christmas Day 2020.
