Jessie J has previously starred in a West End production

Jessie J has reportedly bagged a role in an upcoming film biopic about Britain's Got Talent winner Paul Potts.

The singer is thought to have been cast as the girlfriend of Paul's best friend - who will be played by The Office star Mackenzie Crook - in One Chance, which is set for release next year.

'Even though Jessie's primarily a singer, she has a real talent for acting, too,' says a source.

'Producers know she works great on camera from being on The Voice.'

James Corden will play Paul, who won BGT in 2007 after performing a stunning version of opera song Nessun Dorma.

Other actors linked to the project include Julie Walters and Alexandra Roach, with Simon Cowell rumoured to be playing himself.

Jessie, 24, has some acting experience from starring in West End show Whistle Down The Wind as a child.

She was also a student at the BRIT School during her teen years.

Jessie's spokeswoman declined to comment to the Daily Mirror.
