FARGO star William H Macy would love to play a big budget action hero - despite being hailed as one of the best character actors around.

Macy - who has won acclaim for his performances in Boogie Nights, Magnolia and SEABISCUIT - is best known for his offbeat roles, but is keen to take on a more conventional blockbuster script.

He says, "(I would love to do an action movie) for the money, for the security of a franchise like that. And I love big action-adventure movies. They're way cool."
