Kevin Smith has hailed actor Ben Affleck's singing skills in upcoming movie Jersey Girl, and believes the screen star would be perfect for a stage musical.

Affleck and on-screen girlfriend Liv Tyler break into song together in a production of SWEENEY TODD in the film - and Smith insists neither star mimed.

He says, "That's really them singing. Considering her lineage, it wasn't surprising that Liv (daughter of Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler) has great pipes. But Affleck's the shocker. If they ever revive STARLIGHT EXPRESS, he should strap on some skates and take to the stage."
