NEW YORK (Reuters) - Disney said on Monday it was looking for a sexy man of mystery with a rock singer's voice and a swimmer's physique to play the lead role in a new Broadway musical called "Tarzan."

"He is NOT a muscle man, as in the traditional Tarzan type," Disney said in a statement announcing August 29 auditions open to both actors and people with no theatrical experience.

The producers of the musical scheduled to open in early 2006 said the jungle man must be "charming, sexy, vulnerable, animal-like, mysterious and ... toned, like a swimmer."

Phil Collins has written the music and lyrics for the musical, adapted from the 1999 Disney animated movie "Tarzan."

"For the role of Tarzan, the production is seeking a thrilling pop/rock singer to play in his 20s," the statement said, adding there would be plenty of swinging through the jungle.

"He should have strong upper body strength and be physical, agile, fearless and very comfortable with movement and tackling aerial work," it said.
