One Direction singer Harry Styles is set to bag a cameo role in the upcoming Absolutely Fabulous movie.
The 21-year-old singer has only just announced he, along with his other bandmates, is taking a break from One Direction, but he certainly isn’t short of future projects as he’s already being eyed by Jennifer Saunders, 57, to star in her new comedy film.
A source told The Sun: ”Jennifer has told friends she wants Harry to be part of the movie. She’s got some great cameos in the bag already, but wants to give the film a young, hipster edge.”
The screenwriter-and-comedienne – who portrays PR guru Edina “Eddie” Monsoon – is hoping to work the wavy-haired hunk into the script in such a way that he’ll become a bit of eye-candy for her alter-ego’s chain-smoking best friend Patsy Stone, who is played by director Joanna Lumley.
The source explained: ”If she can find a way to work him into the script, then Patsy could have a new bit of totty to chase.”
However, Harry isn’t the only star being lined up for a cameo as Jennifer is also hoping to snag Kate Moss and Lulu.
Meanwhile, this will be the first time Patsy and Edina have appeared in a feature-length film, having previously starred in fives series’ of the BBC sitcom, which began in 1992.
Shooting for the movie is set to kick off next month.
