London: Singer-actor Justin Timberlake says he dreams of starring in a musical, but is still looking for the perfect role.

The 'SexyBack' singer, who has left music behind in recent years to concentrate on acting, says he would consider combining his talents onscreen if the right project came along, Daily Star reported.

Timberlake, 30, also reveals he is looking for a more modern take on the classic musical.

"That's been discussed... I would love to do a musical one day. I think there might be a way to redefine what that is for this era...

"My problem with musicals today, and I think a lot of people in my generation probably feel this way too, is that we're sitting here having a conversation and all of the sudden we're singing. Time stops," he said.
