The Applause hitmaker is the latest celebrity being lined up for a cameo in the thriller, but, unlike Taylor Swift and David Beckham – who have been rumoured for parts in the film – Gaga is expected to play an exaggerated version of herself.

A source told The Sun: “Gaga only had to commit one day to film her scenes early next year. She’s such an Anglophile she didn’t take much persuading.”

The 27-year-old pop star is the latest big name linked to a cameo in the movie, joining David, 38, Taylor, 23, Adele, 25, and Sir Elton John, 66.

The Secret Service, which is based on a graphic novel by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, will follow Colin Firth as a suave secret agent who is tasked with teaching the tricks of the trade to his young protégé.

Samuel L. Jackson will play the movie’s villain.

Singer Gaga has been stretching her talents across the film world after landing her debut acting role in Robert Rodriguez’s dark action movie Machete Kills, which is due for release later this year.

The Poker Face star plays gun-toting vixen La Chameleon in the film, which sees her act alongside Jessica Alba, Charlie Sheen and Sofia Vergara.

Gaga also filmed a cameo for next year’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt recently said she “nailed” the performance.
