McFly star Dougie is said to have landed a big lead role in a new musical following months of auditions and acting lessons in Los Angeles.
According to The Sun, Dougie will play a superhero called Hale in a stage show called The Academy.
An insider said: "Dougie's character is focal to the storyline as he ends up being captured in a big plot twist."
Dougie, 29, first found fame in 2003 alongside his McFly bandmates - Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones and Harry Judd.
Recently, following a successful tour with super-group McBusted, the lads have all been focusing on solo projects, with Dougie getting into acting.
In October 2015, it was reported that his then-girlfriend Ellie Goulding had encouraged Dougie to think about treading the boards. Apparently, Dougie had thought about an acting career for a long time, but Ellie gave him the final push.
Dougie and Ellie split in March this year.
