Harvey Weinstein says he offered Harry Styles role in major film
Movie producer Harvey Weinstein has revealed that he offered One Direction's Harry Styles a part in a film.
The veteran movie man told the Daily Mail that he gave Styles the chance to play a part in new flick Tulip Fever, which stars Judi Dench, Christoph Waltz and Zach Galifianakis.
However, the singer's busy schedule got in the way of the Brit saying yes to the role.
Weinstein said: "I offered Harry a role in Tulip Fever but he was touring so he had to turn it down. The part ended up going to Matthew Morrison and let me tell you this, the very first scene he shot was one of him kissing Cara Delevingne. So I'm sure Harry won't be turning be down the next role I offer him."
Speaking about what he sees in Styles, the producer added: "He's like Errol Flynn, he's got that swashbuckling charm. Definite star potential. I think he'd be great. No question."
One Direction meanwhile are currently on the road in North America as part of their Where We Are world tour.
