Starr Turns His Back On Acting

Former BEATLE RINGO STARR is giving up acting to throw himself back into the music industry. The 67-year-old featured in a string of movies with his former bandmates including A Hard Day's Night and Magical Mystery Tour, and continued to indulge his passion for acting after the band split. But Starr's enthusiasm has started to wane, and he's vowed to revert to musicmaking for the immediate future. He says, "I used to have a thing for acting. It's been quite a while now, and I've decided there's enough actors, they can do it. I started to refocus more on the music. "I can't commit that far in the future now (for TV or movie roles). Call me in 2010, see if I'm free. I live day to day."
