Hollywood actor and Glovers’ fan James Purefoy has told an American movie podcast he has been asked about a potential takeover of Yeovil Town.

Speaking to ‘Beyond the Mic’ with Sean Dillon to promote his film ‘Fisherman’s Friend 2’ he was asked (slightly tongue in cheek) if he could… would he buy Yeovil Town to challenge Wrexham… his response was not all that positive.

The Taunton-born actor said: “Don’t scare the hell out of me, people have been asking me to put a consortium together to buy Yeovil Town.”

It was pointed out that Hollywood loves “soccer” now… but Purefoy was still hesitant.

“The idea of it, do I have time in my life, for Yeovil Town? Not in that way”.

Well James, if you ever change your mind… or just want to come on the pod and tackle the Fans Five questions… you’re more than welcome to.

Ryan Reynolds, you’re safe… for now!
