Liam Payne: Louis Tomlinson could have an acting career

One Direction star Liam Payne has said that if any of the band were to make the leap into acting it would be Louis Tomlinson.

While chatting to Australian radio show The Hot Hits, Payne got to talking about his admiration for singer-turned-actor Justin Timberlake, and revealed that he thinks Louis could potentially follow in his footsteps.

The Kiss You singer dished: "I saw the Justin Timberlake new movie Runner, Runner the other day - it was really, really good."

The 20-year-old continued: "I'm very proud of the idea that he has come from just being in a boy band to doing something like that."

"He is a very talented guy to be able to pull off that as well as he does, and to be one of the best performers in the world."

Although Liam insisted he hasn't "got the talent" to make such a transition, the star singled out bandmate Louis as the 1D member most likely to make the jump to the silver screen.

Liam revealed: "Because he puts himself in a lot of roles sometimes I think Louis would actually be quite good. He'll sit on the bus sometimes and he'll tell a story, but he puts himself in the character. I do reckon he'd be quite good actually"

One Direction have already made a foray into the world of film, releasing their first 3D concert movie This Is Us in August of this year.
