Your William Hung Porn dreams have been shattered...

...and he's out of the running for playing the villian in Spiderman 3 as well!
William Hung: Only good-guy roles, please
Thursday, January 6, 2005 Posted: 9:15 AM EST (1415 GMT)


SINGAPORE (AP) -- Critics have described his singing as less than heroic, but "American Idol" reject William Hung says he wants to play only good guys in his fledgling acting career.

In Singapore to promote his first film, the action-comedy "Where is Mama's Boy?," the Hong Kong-born Hung ruled out any nasty roles.

"I would like to preserve a good image and not play the bad guy or do anything that's obscene," Hung was quoted by The Straits Times newspaper as telling a news conference.

Hung stars in the Cantonese-language film, opening Thursday in Singapore, playing a street vendor who befriends a music club owner played by Hong Kong starlet Nancy Sit.

Hung shot to fame in the United States in a bungled but earnest audition for the U.S. talent show "American Idol." The 21-year-old won legions of fans by telling the judges he did his best and had no regrets about being panned for his nerdy, out-of-tune rendition of Ricky Martin's "She Bangs."

Hung, who studies in California, later released an unlikely hit album, "Inspiration," which has sold more than 100,000 copies.

"You.. Spiderman. You big silly guy with the funny suit. I'll hit you on the nose until you die!!!!!!!!!!!!"

"Thank you. You know, I have no formal training."

...if by 15 mins you mean 15 years, then perhaps, but I doubt it.

But he's not. He could've been a great bad guy, but he'll obviously never agree to be in a Toxic Avenger movie. Who the hell would want him to play a good guy? He's never going to get a part that way.

I do actually respect that. With William, what you see is what you get. He's not out there trying to be anything that he isn't. I'd much rather see him get a few bucks than Ashlee, Lindsay or any of the other "I have a record deal because I'm hot" girls.

Ha, yeah, it should be "I have a record deal cause my sister is hot and famous"

Though, some people do love Ashlee. I'm not sure why though.

Yep only a few dozen hit movies, international stardom and worship status in asia

Mentioning Jackie Chan in the same thread as William Hung, you couldn't be more blasphermous if you stated you wanted to have a fucking threesome with Jesus and Mary with Joseph there with the video camera
