[an error occurred while processing this directive]Washington (ANI): Ronan Keating has auditioned for a role in The Hobbit: Part 1. The Boyzone star plans to shift to America along with his wife, Yvonne, and his children this summer.
"We are going there (to Hollywood) in July, Yvonne and the kids. We'll get the kids enrolled in school there. It may be for six months or we could even give it a year. We'll see what happens. I''ve done a couple of castings..." Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
He added: “I've done an audition for The Hobbit. That starts shooting in New Zealand in July so we'd be based there for quite a while instead of L.A. if it happens."
Actors Tobey Maguire and Daniel Radcliffe have been linked to the project too. The movie is scheduled to release next year.
