Justin Bieber to play basketball…for movie
Justin Bieber is short, Canadian and most importantly white.
Okay, it’s not the best recipe for a basketball superstar, but if it can work for Steve Nash it just might work for The Biebs.
Deadline reports that Paramount Pictures is in negotiations for what could be the dramatic screen-starring debut of Justin Bieber. He will star alongside Mark Wahlberg in an untitled drama that will revolve around street basketball and will give Bieber the chance to show his basketball skills; which were good enough to earn him MVP at this year’s Celebrity Allstar Game.
Justin Bieber: Never Say Never was a huge financial success for Paramount, but do you think Bieber can make a killing in a dramatic role?
There was a time when Mark Wahlberg was considered a rapper and not actor, so I guess anything is possible.
