Katy Perry's Acting Career In The Works As Singer Wants To Make The Transition From Animated Flicks


Katy Perry may be best known for her catchy pop hits, but the 28-year-old singer is looking ahead at a future in film.

Perry, who voices the character Smurfette in the upcoming animated movie "The Smurfs 2," spoke about her acting dreams in a recent interview with Metro.

"With films, I hope to win you all over with animation and then do other films," Perry told the publication. She previously voiced Smurfette in 2011's original "Smurfs" movie, as well as nabbing bit roles in "How I Met Your Mother" and "Raising Hope."

"I am really interested in comedy, and I would really love to play Rachael in 'Blade Runner 2' if Ridley [Scott] would just call!" Perry joked. "I think I’d enjoy playing the opposite of what you expect." Sean Young played the Rachael role in the original "Blade Runner."

Perry, however, isn't straying far from music anytime soon. The singer announced the title and release date of her next album on Monday by publicizing the details on the side of a gold truck.
