Rocker Joel Madden has hired legendary acting coach Howard Fine teach him everything there is to know about breaking into the film industry.
The Good Charlotte, 29, has set his sights on becoming a powerful source in the acting world, according to a new report Life & Style Magazine claims.
“Joel wanted to master the craft before attempting it professionally,” says an inside source. “He really wants his acting career to take off. He’s had small parts in a few films [including 2006’s “Material Girls”], but he has yet to be recognized as an actor.”
And at least one person is fiercely supportive of Joel’s acting asipirations.
“…Nicole [Richie] is really pushing Joel to pursue an acting career. She feels it will give him more time to spend with her and their daughter, Harlow, because he won’t have to tour all the time.”
