After making his name as a singer on phone screens via the Vine app, singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes is ready to make the jump to the big screen as an actor.

“Shawn Mendes has to stop touring as much to start acting,” the star told Variety‘s Marc Malkin on the MTV Video Music Awards pink carpet Monday. “Finding the right role is the right role. It’s not about the type of film, or whatever, but yeah, I want to do it soon.”

The “In My Blood” singer has even received “a few scripts” and begun to take acting lessons.

“It’s a few scripts, definitely, and a few incredible scripts, so maybe something is gonna come soon,” he said.
