Justin Bieber Wants to Act

Justin BieberJustin Bieber wants to pursue an acting career.

The "Boyfriend" singer has been bitten by the acting bug and hopes to be cast in more roles in the future following his appearance on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation in 2011.

"I hope to do some more acting. I have only done a few things like CSI, but I really want to do some more acting," Justin told E! News. The 18-year-old heartthrob played troubled teen Jason McCann on two episodes of CSI and most recently made a cameo appearance as an alien in Men In Black 3 alongside Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones.

The teen sensation - who is currently dating Disney star Selena Gomez - thinks his big break could come in the shape of a basketball movie he is planning with Ted actor Mark Wahlberg: "Mark and I - we've been working on the script for a long time now," he said.

Mark recently commented that Justin was the perfect choice for his upcoming film project, assuring critics that the pop star can really act. "It's set in street hustling basketball... Obviously, [Justin] is a very good athlete. He can play. But I also really think he can act. We're just going to have to make him realize that he's playing a character so he can't have the same hairdo," he joked.
