Jason Derulo eyeing acting career

R&B singer JASON DERULO is keen to follow his girlfriend JORDIN SPARKS' lead and pursue a career in acting.

The former American Idol star, who has been dating Derulo for over two years, made her Broadway debut in 2010's In the Heights and she went on to make her movie debut opposite Whitney Houston in a remake of Sparkle.

Now it appears the It Girl hitmaker, who graduated from the prestigious American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York, has also set his sights on making a name for himself in the film and theater industry.

He tells WENN, "I definitely want to do Broadway at some point... It'll probably be later in life when I'm a little more ready to settle down in (one) place. I'll probably jump into movies before I do that. I've been... looking at a couple of scripts."

But the 23 year old insists he won't be accepting any roles until after the release of his third album, which is due for release in late 2013: "I'm focused on the music, but shortly after that we can break into some other endeavours. I'd love to do an action (film) or drama given the right opportunity."
