Hopkins wants American Idol: The Movie
The legendary Hannibal actor admits he and his family are rooted to their sofas every week as they tune into the latest episode of the singing contest, and he would like the opportunity to play the sharp-tongued judge on the big screen.
He tells MTV.com, "We watch American Idol. We are American Idol addicts.
"Simon (is my favourite) because he's so brutally honest. There's no political correctness with him. He says it as it is."
And Cowell's fellow judge, producer Randy Jackson, has already given the idea the thumbs up.
He says, "I'm a huge Anthony Hopkins fan... Let's do it!"
