X Factor: Jedward to crack America?
John and Edward Grimes have admitted that they want to try to launch their career in America.
The X Factor siblings told Celebritain that they want to have their own reality TV show airing Stateside and admit that they have already talked to industry insiders about the move.
“I want to have our own TV show, something really controversial, something with American artists on, like X Factor but better,” Edward said.
“I’d like to go on Good Morning America, it’s on a different level and we’ve had talks with Vanilla Ice and the head guy at Universal. We’d like to do something like our new ITV2 series, but out there.”
Edward also revealed that he and his twin are both keen to land some “serious” movie roles.
“We want to do acting, though, like a really big movie,” he said.
“We don’t want to do a musical, we want to do something that’s so far away from what we’re known from. People can think ‘Oh John and Edward would do that anyway’, so we need to do new things that people won’t expect. We want really serious movie roles.”
He added: “At the moment we’re concentrating the UK and Ireland, but next year America.”
