Could Ed Sheeran be the next big movie star?!

The Thinking Out Loud singer could be starring alongside Renee Zellweger, Patrick Dempsey and Colin Firth after it was reported he landed a speaking role in the latest Bridget Jones movie.

Ed already plays a small part in the new film, after scenes were filmed at his Croke Park concert earlier this year, but the songwriter also wants a speaking role in the highly-anticipated Bridget Jones' Baby, according to The Sun

A source told the newspaper: "Ed was really keen to be part of the movie after granting access to film at his gig."

"He's got experience playing himself in Home And Away and is not daunted by the prospect of starring alongside Renee."

It is reported that he is up against one other star but the chances are on his side to land the bigger role.

If Mr Sheeran does nab the part, we think this movie could be the best installment yet!
