LONDON, Feb. 19 (UPI) -- Famed British illusionist Derren Brown said his next televised stunt will involve hypnotizing a straight man into believing he is attracted to other men.

Brown, 41, who came out as gay four years ago, said he believes he can convince a straight man that he is gay and hypnotize a gay man into believing he is straight, The Daily Telegraph reported Tuesday.

"I was thinking about this the other day -- it would be interesting wouldn't it? To take a gay guy and make him straight and a straight guy and make him gay," Brown told The Sun.

Brown's previous TV stunts included convincing people the world was ending and hypnotizing a group of people into robbing an armored security van.
