Guillermo Díaz is a really nice guy—he really is.

But the actor has us a little worried.

Not only does he play a tormented, face-licking ex-assassin on Scandal, but he now reveals his dream role.

"I would love to do more horror films," Díaz says in the new issue of FourTwoNine magazine. "I'm really hoping something great in that genre will come along. I want to be the bad guy. I want to be the killer. I would love to do something with clowns. Some sort of demented clown."

Paging, Ryan Murphy!

If the clown thing doesn't work out, we're sure he could find some clothing-optional work. Díaz posed completely nude (yup, he went full frontal) a couple of years ago for Pinups magazine.

"I get off on pushing people's buttons sometimes," he said. "For me, being naked isn't a big deal. It's a tasteful magazine. It's very sort of artsy. And it was hot. I was like, 'I want to be in that magazine!'"

Díaz has long been openly gay. "It never affected any auditions that I knew of," he said. "I continued to get straight roles and thug roles and bad guys."

Now if only he could meet Madonna. Díaz is such a big fan that he has a tattoo on his upper right arm of Madonna from her 1992 Sex book.

He recalled meeting Madonna's daughter Mercy in a store in L.A. The pop singer's daughter was shopping with a nanny, who recognized Díaz. "The nanny was really nice and asked to take a picture of me," he said. "Then I say to the nanny that I have a tattoo of Mercy's mother on my arm. And she's like, 'Let me see!' and I'm showing the nanny, and the nanny is like, 'Mercy, look!' And I'm showing Mercy the tattoo of her mother, and Mercy just stares at me and stares at the tattoo. It was crazy. I was like, what the f--k? I just showed Madonna's daughter a tattoo of her mother."
