One Direction's Louis Tomlinson to star in biopic
One Direction's Louis Tomlinson is finally getting his big break in the acting world, playing Leicester City striker Jaime Vardy.
Tomlinson was a guest at the Leicester City and England player's wedding to Rebekah Nicholson, on May 25.
"It's a golden opportunity," Tomlinson, 24, told Hello! magazine when asked about the planned film. "Jamie's story is incredible - he's incredible."
The singer and Doncaster Rovers fan added: "He's a lovely guy, very easy-going and such a great example for anyone who thinks they can't follow their dreams."
Leicester City, who faced relegation last season, won the Premier League title in what has been described as one of the greatest sporting stories of all time.
Tomlinson added: "For a football fan, any kind of involvement in a story like Jamie's is exciting."
The pop star attended Vardy's wedding with his American actress girlfriend Danielle Campbell.
Contrary to reports, he did not perform on the day.
Vardy, 29, and his wife, 34, tied the knot at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire.
