Turns out Usher is diving back into acting.

The R&B crooner is set to play boxer Sugar Ray Leonard in a movie which will chronicle the life of Panamanian boxer, Roberto Durán.

The movie is set to start filming later this year and will also star  Robert De Niro and Gael García Bernal.

Usher told the BBC he thinks this is an incredible role.  “If you see me in the corners boxing, I’m doing that while working on this album.”

Sounds like it’s going to be a busy year for Usher Raymond.

Do you think he can pull off this role?
