TV star James Corden says he would like to play a “transvestite criminal” in a musical.

The 38-year-old star, who is currently busy filming The Late Late Show, says he hopes to return to acting in the future, reported Femalefirst.

“If I could choose any role, there's a musical which is not beloved at all, a Kander and Ebb musical called Kiss of the Spider Woman, where there's a character called Melin who is a transvestite criminal in prison, and it's just a role I've always loved,” he says.

Corden says he is a long-time fan of the production and admitted he would love to take on the challenge.

“I watched it when I was like, 14, I cried my eyes out, and it's got some brilliant songs. I'd love a stab at that,” he says.
