British illusionist and hypnotist Derren Brown is planning to turn a straight man gay.

The 41-year-old Brown is known in Britain for his televised supernatural specials in which he uses mind control to get unwitting participants to do outrageous things.

“I was thinking about this the other day – it would be interesting wouldn't it?” Brown, who is openly gay, told UK gay glossy Gay Times. “To take a gay guy and make him straight and a straight guy and make him gay.”

In Derren Brown: The Experiments, Brown hypnotized a person to “assassinate” actor Stephen Fry. And in last year's two-part special Derren Brown: Apocalypse, Brown convinced a man that he was the last person remaining on Earth after it had been devastated by a meteor shower and taken over by zombies.

The shows have generated huge ratings and controversy.

“Controversy has never interested me for its own sake,” he said. “It's always been about doing stuff that feels dramatic.”

Brown came out gay in a 2007 interview with the Independent.
