British actor Clive Owen wants to take a break from Hollywood to return to his stage roots.

After a busy past few years starring in a series of blockbusters including The Bourne Identity and King Arthur, the actor is yearning to tread the boards.

Appearing in the new movie version of Patrick Marber play Closer has intensified his desires for theatre.

He says, "I was always passionate about the play and I would like to go back to the stage, but you'll have to talk to my agent about that."

His agent adds, "I'm trying to find something suitable for him at the moment."
