A British tabloid reports that Bruno Mars -- who is a huge Prince fan -- is being sought to portray the Purple One in a bio-pic.
The Daily Mirror says Mars has been approached by Netflix about the role. According to a source, "Bruno says it will probably be the most nerve-racking move of his career if it happens."
The snitch continues, “Prince was one of his idols, so to be asked to take on a hefty role like that especially as a debut acting move is full-on. The offer has come out of the blue. Bruno used to love acting when he was younger but it’s not an avenue he’s explored.”
Mars did, however, team with The Time for a Prince tribute at the 2017 Grammy Awards, performing "Let's Go Crazy."
