With just a few days to go before the final Harry Potter film premieres, Tom Felton says he's ready to cast a spell on a new audience: hip-hop music fans.

The actor, who has played the villainous Draco Malfoy since 2001, recently signed a recording contract with an independent music label. "I was thinking of doing some N-Dubz-style stuff," he tells Britain's The Sun, referencing his favorite rap group. "I am looking to get into the grime rap UK scene."

"I'm going to change my image -- backward caps, the lot," Felton continued, adding that "it's still under wraps, so I can't really talk about it."

In addition to promoting Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II, Felton, 23, can next be seen opposite James Franco and Freida Pinto in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
