“Bruno says it will probably be the most nerve-racking move of his career if it happens,” a Netflix source told The Mirror. “Prince was one of his idols so to be asked to take on a hefty role like that especially as a debut acting move is full-on. The offer has come out of the blue. Bruno used to love acting when he was younger but it’s not an avenue he’s explored.”
However, Bruno’s team and Prince’s estate have not responded to these allegations as of yet.
Bruno is currently on the road for his 24K Magic World Tour and is set to perform at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on October 23rd.
