Mark Owen - Mark Owen lands film role

Mark Owen has landed a role in a movie.

The Take That singer will play a Christmas elf in a festive family film, though he is unclear when he will work on the project.

Mark said: ''I don't know if I'm even really meant to say, but I might be one of Santa's helpers in a film for Christmas.

''I think I'm going to be one of the people who clean out the reindeers.

''The guy in 'The Hobbit' -- the new one -- Martin Freeman, I think he's in it.

''It might not even be in this year, but sometime in the future I should hopefully be getting the opportunity to play one of Santa's helpers.

''I'm still not even sure I get to say words. I think I get one sentence, like, 'They're not ready,' or something.''

Mark landed the role after agreeing to write a song for the film's soundtrack in return for a part.

He told The Sun newspaper: ''I should be writing a song for it. What happened is, I said I'd write a song for it if I could be in it, so they got me a little voice part.

''It'll be brilliant for my kids, that's what it's for.''

While Mark - who has children Elwood, six, Willow, four, and Fox, 10 months, with wife Emma Ferguson - is excited about the movie, his dream role would be in the 'Star Wars' film series.

He added: ''I haven't done any film stuff, so it'll be fun. I get approached about TV stuff every now and then, but usually it's just the kids asking me to fix the telly because it's broken.

''My boy loves 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars', so that's the dream really.

''I'd want a lightsaber if I was on it though.''
