R+B star Usher is taking a year off music, so he can concentrate on his burgeoning acting career.

The singer is currently shooting a role in new movie DYING FOR DOLLY, and is so hooked on acting he wants to dedicate 2005 to movies.

He says, "I'm doing Dying For Dolly but there are other films I'm going to do in 2005. I'm looking for the right role.

"I think every actor who is established or not is looking for that. I'm spreading myself out in the right areas, looking for the right roles. I wanted to do it, so I went for it."
