Pop babe Britney Spears is eyeing up an alternative career - as a comedy movie star.

The OOPS!...I DID IT AGAIN star - who controversially married her childhood pal Jason Alexander in Las Vegas earlier this month (03JAN04) - has been linked to new film IN THE PINK, starring comedy stalwart Tim Allen.

Fox News reporter Roger Friedman claims rumours were rife at the SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL in Park City, Utah, on Saturday (17JAN04) that sexy Spears had already signed up for the role.

In the Pink charts the exploits of an executive who is forced to sell door-to-door cosmetics after losing his high-profile job.

Spears made her movie debut in the moderately successful CROSSROADS in 2002.
