One Direction Harry Styles appears to be destined to have it all. Aside from a singing career with one of the biggest bands in history, he’s also landed a movie role. What more could he ask for? Well, what about a role on a hit television series?
Styles will reportedly join the cast of “Scream Queens.” Actor Nick Jonas might have hinted at this during his interview with CelebsNow. When asked though if Styles would be part of Season 2, his reply was a bit vague.
“I’m not sure but I’ve heard from a few people in LA who’ve seen him – agents and casting directors – that he’s a good actor, which is interesting,” Jonas said. Nonetheless, One Direction fans could possibly deduce that Harry Styles is a “good actor.” Even the rest of the cast have teased about Harry Styles’ appearance in Season 2. At PaleyFest 2016 last March, Lea Michele mentioned his name in jest as she alluded to her character’s impending intimate involvement.
Confirmation about his involvement in the show is still unknown. However, HollywoodLife noted Emma Roberts statement that any member of One Direction is welcome on the show, to which Michele also called out Zayn Malik’s name.
E! News revealed early on about the prospect of an acting career for Styles. A source told the publication exclusively that he’s received various offers ever since news of the One Direction hiatus broke out. “Harry is being offered acting stuff, but he hasn’t accepted anything yet. He is not openly looking for stuff either but is open to offers,” the source revealed then. However, the source also pointed out that Styles would only choose a part if it felt right.
“If he does expand into that field, he wants to make sure it is the right role,” the source added.
Perhaps, the offer to appear in Christopher Nolan’s World War 2 movie “Dunkirk” felt right to him. Reports revealed Styles is enthusiastic about his role. Moreover, it’s said that he gave up the luxuries of a boyband star to prepare for the role.
Actor Danny DeVito believes Styles will be fine on “Dunkirk” provided he follows directions. DeVito joined One Direction for the music video of “Steal My Girl.”
The veteran actor also had some advice for Harry Styles on acting. “He is a natural, a handsome guy, and is good … And he needs to work on his skills a little,” DeVito told New York Daily News.
