Washington, Feb 24 (ANI): Sir Anthony Hopkins has confessed his love for 'American Idol', insisting that he wants to turn the reality show into a movie and star as the show's sharp-tongued British judge Simon Cowell.
The 'Hannibal' star has admitted that he and his family are huge fans of the singing contest, and he would like the opportunity to play Cowell on the big screen.
"We watch American Idol. We are American Idol addicts," Contactmusic quoted him, as telling MTV.com.
"Simon (is my favourite) because he's so brutally honest. There's no political correctness with him. He says it as it is," he added.
Cowell's fellow judge, producer Randy Jackson, has already given the idea the thumbs up.
"I'm a huge Anthony Hopkins fan... Let's do it," he said. (ANI)
