Robin WilliamsFunnyman Robin Williams has been asked to play Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle in a movie about her life.

Boyle shot to international fame after appearing on U.K. TV program "Britain's Got Talent" earlier this year, counting the likes of Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore among her fans.

Movie executives are planning a film detailing her rise to stardom - and they want Williams, who previously dressed as a woman in 1993's Mrs. Doubtfire, to play the starring role.

And the actor, who is an avid Boyle fan, has already been practising his impressions of her by singing her audition song I Dreamed A Dream to his celebrity friends.

He says, "I've been asked if I want to play Susan in the movie. I think she's incredible. That clip of her singing on Britain's Got Talent was extraordinary. So inspiring. It was quite a shock when she began to sing. I saw some other clip of her singing 'Cry Me A River' a few years ago. It was incredible. She's got a really great voice."
