Bond star Ben Whishaw is keen to show off his skills as a singer.

The British actor, who played one of the Bob Dylan characters in quirky biopic I'm Not There, admits he enjoys singing and wants to move his career in a more musical direction.

He tells Britain's Daily Telegraph, "I have done some before and would like to do more."

However, Whishaw insists he hopes to sing solo instead of part of an ensemble musical cast, adding, "The problem is my voice isn't particularly suited to that (singing in a group). I would rather do it on my own, at least to start with."
