Kevin Bacon Wants to Play More Comedy Roles


Kevin Bacon


'There is a club of new wave comedy that I really enjoy. I would love to be part of that,' he says of his inretest in improving his skills as a funnyman.

Kevin Bacon is appealing to movie bosses to cast him in more comedy films - because he desperately wants to prove his skills as a funnyman. The Hollywood actor has played numerous "intense guys" over the years and his last major role came in 2009's "Taking Chance", which told the emotional story of an army officer who is assigned to escort the body of a dead soldier home and won Bacon an Emmy Award.

Bacon had a small role in Renee Zellweger's comedy "My One and Only" and has accepted a part in a new film opposite "The Office" star Steve Carell - and he is hoping the movie will lead to more funny roles. He tells Britain's Sunday Express, "I have done a lot of really intense guys in a row and you get typecast. There is a club of new wave comedy that I really enjoy. I would love to be part of that. I don't know how you do that."

"I have made little steps for people not to take me too seriously. I have played myself in a television show which hasn't aired yet and I made some films for a website called Funny Or Die, created by Will Ferrell and his partner."
