Rolling Stones music legend Mick Jagger could soon launch a new career as an actor in a television situation comedy, the Hollywood press reported Thursday.

Jagger is in negotiations to play a celebrity, who is the target of a plot by a group of blue-collar New York workers, to rob someone famous in a pilot for a sitcom series being pitched to the US television network ABC, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The show had originally been titled I Want to Rob Jeff Goldblum, but the American actor never signed on for the role as the hapless celebrity.

Producers then rewrote the pilot for the 62-year-old Jagger, one of the founders of the Rolling Stones, but the singer would appear in only a few scenes and the show would not carry his name in its title, the industry publication said.

The Rolling Stones wrapped up the spring leg of their world tour in New Zealand on Tuesday and will begin the European leg in Barcelona on May 27.
