Former popstar Luke Goss has become the first actor to sign onto the forthcoming movie adaptation of Namco’s popular Tekken series.

According to a post on the actor’s website, Goss is attached to play the part of British boxer Steve Fox.

Goss, 39, enjoyed immense popularity in the UK during the 1980s as part of pop trio Bros, of whom his brother Matt was also a member. The group scored 13 hit singles across the country, and are perhaps best known for their hits ‘When Will I Be Famous’ and ‘I Owe You Nothing.’

Following the bands break-up, Goss turned his hand to acting, and subsequently went on to star in a number of Hollywood blockbusters, such as Blade II and the upcoming Hellboy 2: The Golden Army.

Tekken is due out in cinemas at some point in 2009, with filming rumoured to take place in Louisiana.
