Bieber will star in Wahlberg’s next big film as a basketball player. No word yet on what role Wahlberg will take, but a source close to the production tells Hollyscoop that Bieber’s movie debut “is in the works but nothing is finalized yet.”
This is Bieber’s first movie role, but not his first acting role. Bieber was also in two episodes of “CSI” and not just as a dead body.
Apparently Mark Wahlberg has been campaigning to get Bieber in his new movie all summer and finally it looks like the wheels are in motion.
We’re expecting Bieber’s transition from music to film to be an easy one. He’s already box office gold. His 3D concert film, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never was the highest grossing music concert movie since 1984 and the third-highest grossing documentary since 1982.
And this project won't be the only one on Mark's plate. The entire cast of Entourage will reunite soon for the Entourage Movie, which Mark will executive produce. In late September he said the script was going to be done in a week or so, which means the ball is rolling!
