I've turned down Hollywood role for the band, says Danny

The Script's Danny O'Donoghue has revealed he has rejected multiple Hollywood offers because they conflicted with the band's schedule.

The 34-year-old revealed he was approached to appear in a "massive" animated movie, but didn't accept the part because he didn't want to let down his band mates Mark Sheehan and Glen Power, as well as their loyal fan base.

"There have been loads of offers coming in to do stuff in the States but I just don't have the time.

"There's been some great things," he said.

CARTOON

"There was one which I can't say exactly what it was but it was for a massive animated cartoon, but it would have taken four months out of my life to do, and that's the next four months of my life right now.

"So I'd go off and do something that really just pleases me and cancel the tour and f**k the band off, you can't do that you know?"

However, the band - whose fourth studio album No Sound Without Silence was released last year - are planning on doing their own thing when they complete their extensive world tour at the end of this year.

"But loads of stuff [is in the pipeline]. We'll all be spreading our wings and branching out into things, but The Script is number one, always will be," Danny said.

Meanwhile, Danny will be heading into the studio with X Factor star Ella Henderson.

"I've got a writing session with Ella Henderson next month as well so I'm really looking forward to that, she's an amazing vocalist," he said.
