Michael Buble is planning to put his singing career on hold so he can launch himself as a Hollywood actor.

The Canadian crooner, who once appeared as an extra in an episode of Tv show The X-Files, admits he is desperate to start making movies, but he has been too busy with his music to pursue his dream.

However, Buble is planning to take a break so he can chase acting roles full-time.

He tells Britain's Sunday Express newspaper, "The only reason I haven't done it (made a film) is because of the time constraints. I think in the next couple of years I will take time off and start making movies."
