AceShowbiz - John Mayer has opened up more about his future in acting. In a new interview, the "Your Body Is a Wonderland" hitmaker says that he only really likes acting in his "friends' movies."
The 44-year-old musician has admitted he agreed to join the cast of the thriller "Vengeance" after he was approached by his pal, B.J. Novak. He told Entertainment Tonight, "I like being in my friends' movies."
"I don't really have a brain for acting. I like when my friends call me and say, 'You wanna do stuff?' " John told the outlet. He added, "I'm my own agent for film. It happens just when friends go 'Hey I have an idea for you,' - I go 'yeah, I'll do it.' Simple as that!"
John praised B.J., best known for "The Office" and his "thoughtful" approach to filmmaking. He said, "B.J. is very thoughtful on where he wants it to go."
John appears in the movie as a "parody" version of himself with very little self awareness, calling his scene "a great moment between two guys that are smart but dumb." The Grammy winner added, "The way we are talking it's like we are only ever listening to ourselves talk."
Meanwhile, earlier this month, the "Get Hard" star had to cancel a Florida gig after his father "suffered a medical emergency." Writing on Instagram, John said, "This morning, my father suffered a medical emergency and was transported to the ER where he received much-needed and great care. He is now fairly stable and will continue to undergo some procedures, but as you can understand, I have to stay in NYC and can't play tonight's show in Saratoga Springs."
