“Dougie started taking acting lessons last year and decided it was something he wanted to pursue and take seriously
Not content with being in two massive pop bands, Dougie Poynter is trying to crack Hollywood. The McFly and McBusted star, 28, has been out in LA meeting with top agents and producers.
The floppy haired bassist has already got a neat side project away from music, as he was snapped up by Kate Moss’s modelling agency Storm back in 2014.
But Dougie is looking to move and talk in front of the camera as well as pose.
A source said: “While the bands are taking a bit of time off, Dougie has been busy networking across the pond.
“It’s pilot season in LA, which is when lots of casting decisions are made.
“He’s not filmed anything, but he has had productive chats with some really important people out there.
“Dougie started taking acting lessons last year and decided it was something he wanted to pursue and take seriously.
“He’s not looking to stay out in Los Angeles permanently just now, but who knows in a year or two?”
Dougie still has upcoming McFly commitments, but the bass player had a bit of time out while the rest of the boys get on with their own things.
Much of which has to do with making babies.
Harry Judd became a father for the first time last month and Tom Fletcher welcomed his second son this week with wife Giovanna.
The couple kitted out a £900 Bugaboo Donkey double buggy blue on both sides for sons Buzz and newborn Buddy.
