Adorable Marcus Canty may have been voted off X Factor’s semi-finals last night, but he promised he’d be back, and he will be! Marcus told HollywoodLife.com exclusively what he’d love to do next.

If you’ve been watching X Factor then you know that Marcus Canty has a winning smile that lights up your TV screen. Now Marcus admitted to HollywoodLife.com that he’s dying to act and his dream would be to star in a remake of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air TV show, which originally starred Will Smith.

“Oh man, that would be sweet,”… he revealed. “Yeah man, somebody needs to make that man. Just get me a sitcom. I want to make some money with a sitcom!”

“I want to do everything. I want to do movies. I want my own sitcom. I would even do a chick flick. Not a raunchy one though. Just a beautiful chick flick,” he said.

It turns out Marcus has trained as an actor so he’s prepped. “That’s what I did before I sang. I acted first … I went to a school for film and TV in New York. I got a scholarship to go there to do acting,” he revealed. “I got big dreams, I got big dreams…”

He also confirmed that Timberland has been in touch with him. “Yeah, hopefully, me and Tim can get together man, I would love to work with Tim,” he said.

We can’t blame Marcus at all for aspiring to step into Will Smith’s shoes or to work with Timberland and we think he would be terrific!

We just want Marcus to go on to a great career. He deserves it!
