Tinie Tempah to make movie debut

Tinie Tempah has revealed he is planning to branch out into acting with his movie debut this year.
Adulthood's Noel Clarke has written a part especially for the Brit Award-nominated rapper, and Tinie is keen to get involved.
The Frisky rapper told the Daily Star: "It's sounding like the best movie Noel's done by far. It's very international and there's a lot going on. Work schedule permitting, I'm definitely down for the role. I know my part.
"I always said if I ever got involved in acting I never wanted it to be a cliche role. I really wanted to get into a different character, so fingers crossed it'll work out.
"The part was written especially for me, which is cool.
"I met up with Noel at his agency and he explained how much of a big fan he is and how he's been watching my videos.
"He said he based the character on what he knows I'd be capable of doing. Once I read the script it made perfect sense, my sense of humour and everything. It was very thoughtful and I'm flattered of course."
Actor, writer and director Noel, 35, cast rapper Plan B in his award-winning film Adulthood and that inspired Tinie, 22, to try his hand at acting.
He said: "Plan B is a perfect example of someone who has made the move.
"When you watch a film he's been in you don't think it's Plan B, The Movie. It's the same with Justin Timberlake."
