November 7 — The former One Direction star Zayn Malik has teamed up with ‘Law and Order’s Dick Wolf and his wife Noelle Wolf to help produce a scripted show called ‘Boys’, which is based on the formation of a successful boy band and now he’s decided to take on a role.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Zayn has started talks with his fellow producers about him appearing in a couple of episodes of ‘Boys’. He’s really keen to kick of his acting career and sees this as the perfect opportunity to do so, especially as he will have a lot of creative control.
“The discussions are still ongoing and there is still a chance he may just play himself in the show. Either way he is taking his role as executive producer very seriously and sees this as a big stepping stone to working more on TV and film in the future.”
The 23-year-old singer has always wanted to sink his teeth into acting but his dreams of making it as a big Hollywood star came to a halt in 2010 when he joined the band on ‘The X Factor’.
