Katy Perry to Audition for Vin Diesel Movie?

Katy Perry is set to audition for a role in Vin Diesel's new movie.

The "Roar" hitmaker could be turning her hand at acting after talking to the Hollywood actor-and-producer about a role in the xXx action franchise. Vin, 46, recently hinted he is considering the songstress - who has previously had a voice role in The Smurfs movies - for the female lead role and it now appears Katy could indeed be in line for the part.

"As you know, the new XXX script finally comes in next month...and just this morning people are suggesting Katy Perry as the new X girl [sic]," the Fast & Furious star wrote on Facebook last month.

"Everyone is a bit shocked, but Katy has been told she can come and try out for the part. The audition is lined up for the next few weeks - depending on Katy's schedule," a casting source said.

The 29-year-old singer voiced her admiration for Vin after he posted a webcam clip of him dancing to her hit single "Dark Horse," as well as Beyonce's "Drunk in Love," last month. "YES VIN DIESEL [sic]," she posted on Twitter.

Katy wouldn't be the first pop star to catch Vin's eye as he previously asked Rita Ora to make a cameo in last year's Fast & Furious 6, which was filmed largely in the "R.I.P." hitmaker's hometown London. The Hollywood star praised Rita, saying, "I was out one night and was introduced to her. We were looking for someone to kick off the most quintessential race in the movie. We wanted somebody who represented today's London and have that presence to kick off a race of that style and she was just perfect and she was game to do it. We were lucky to get her and we were lucky that she came in and kicked butt."
