'Riddick' star Vin Diesel says he has been flooded with offers to star in musicals since his karaoke version of Rihanna's 'Stay' became a viral internet hit.
The 46-year-old actor is best known for playing tough guys, but movie executives are now eager to cast him in singing roles, reported Daily Star.
"That was an alternative to sending a Valentine's Day card. When my girlfriend saw it, she said, 'You have to give that to your fans.
"I'd made other videos of me signing on my page before. It was no big deal. When I was singing 'Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire' no one cared. Then a studio called me and said
they wanted me to do a musical," he said.
Diesel, who appears in the macho 'Fast & Furious' franchise, has long lobbied to star in a movie adaptation of Broadway musical 'Guys and Dolls' and hopes producers will cast him now they've heard his singing skills.
"You know how long I've been talking about 'Guys and Dolls'? It's got to happen. Isn't it funny? I do a silly little video and all of a sudden people are like, 'Vin, would you ever consider a musical?' I've been asking to do this for the last 10 years, man," the actor said.
