LOS ANGELES, Feb 19:Â Former One Direction star Harry Styles hopes to become like Justin Timberlake who has managed to taste success in singing as well as acting.
“(Harry) is dipping his feet in many areas and as much as he is working on music. The acting bug has definitely bit and we can all thank ‘Dunkirk’ for sparking that. He has seen how the best do it with Christopher Nolan as his director and he wants to chase an Oscar before he chases a Grammy,” a source told HollywoodLife.
The source added, “He actually loves how Justin Timberlake has done it and how he has done both acting and singing seamlessly, he would like to emulate that type of career.”
Meanwhile, Columbia Records CEO Rob Stringer said that Styles’ new album is all set to hit the shelves and fans will not be disappointed once it gets released.
“We’re close and we’re very excited. We have a record we’re incredibly excited about and it’s not far away from being ready. We obviously want everything to be beautifully done, because we think he’s here to stay. Harry has stepped up with the vision of someone who’s authentic,” he said. (PTI)
