Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and his six-pack abs may one day end up on the big screen. The "Jersey Shore" star has announced that he's planning to leave MTV's hit series to become a movie star.
"There's only so long you can rule the reality world," he tells E! Online. "Maybe another year or so of reality, and then I'm gonna graduate to movies."
The 28-year-old gym, tanning and laundry fanatic likens his situation to that of a great athlete.
"It's like Michael Jordan. There's only so long you can keep winning them rings. You gotta move on and try something different. I love to be in front of the camera; I love performing; I love entertaining. So movies is definitely the next step."
In the meantime, he's prepping for Italy, where "Jersey Shore" will shoot its next season.
"I'm actually gonna get me some Rosetta Stone," The Sitch says. "I got two months to learn it. My name comes from Italy so I've got a little bit of heritage there. Plus maybe I can get a hometown Italian chick."
