Danny O’Donoghue has turned down massive Hollywood roles for The Script

Danny O'Donoghue rejected a Hollywood offer for the sake of The Script.

The 34-year-old frontman has revealed he has received an influx of exciting offers in the last few months but has rejected them all in order to complete his tour dates with the band.

"There have been loads of offers coming in to do stuff in the States but I just don't have the time. There's been some great things," he exclusively told BANG Showbiz.

Among the offers, the 'Hall of Fame' hitmaker revealed he was approached to appear in a "massive" animated movie, but didn't accept the part because he didn't want to let down his band mates Mark Sheehan and Glen Power, as well as their loyal fan base.

The former 'The Voice UK' coach continued: "There was one which I can't say exactly what it was but it was for a massive animated cartoon, but it would have taken four months out of my life to do, and that's the next four months of my life right now. So I'd go off and do something that really just pleases me and cancel the tour and f**k the band off, you can't do that you know?"

However, the band - whose fourth studio album 'No Sound Without Silence' was released last year - are planning on exploring new paths later in the year when they complete their extensive world tour.

He added: "But loads of stuff [is in the pipeline]. We'll all be spreading our wings and branching out into things, but The Script is number one, always will be."
