Samy Naceri, a French actor known for his roles in the Taxi movie franchise, is the next celebrity in line to apply for Russian citizenship, TV Channel Zvezda said.

Naceri is currently in St. Petersburg, where he's working on the new movie Rock & Road, made by a Russian director.

The actor said he'd happily get a Russian passport, if he was offered one.

"If famous people are so fascinated by your country that they want to have a Russian passport, there is nothing wrong with that. It tells about their desire to get to know your country more," Naceri told a Zvezda correspondent.
