Dominic Cooper's Typecasting Fears

Dominic Cooper is worried he will only be known for singing on a jet ski in 'Mamma Mia!'.

The 'Tamara Drewe' actor - who rose to fame after starring in the musical movie, where he started dating his leading lady Amanda Seyfried - admits he is desperate to work on other movie projects, so he doesn't get typecast.

He said: "I've never had a plan. I just want to work with really good directors. I don't want to be the guy from 'Mamma Mia!' who sings on a jet ski."

The actor fought off stiff competition for the role in the romantic comedy movie.

'American Pie' star Chris Klein's audition video became an instant hit when it was leaked onto the internet, something which Dominic admits "filled him with confidence".

When asked if he saw it, he told Empire magazine: "I have, yes. My immediate reaction was I was upset for him. My God, if my audition for that was ever seen. OK, it's quite amusing. It filled me with confidence!"
