Justin Bieber can add actor to his list of accomplishments. Bieber has just been cast in an as yet untitled basketball movie opposite Mark Wahlberg. And, Wahlberg completely agrees with the casting director's choice. Obviously, it helps to have a veteran supporting you along the way.
Wahlberg said, "I see the guy and spent time with him and you see what he does and how he does it, and then you actually have a conversation with him and it's there."
Baby Biebs has never acted on a big screen production but he has the potential for him to become a successful crossover star. Bieber has been groomed into the superstar singer that he currently is. He is in very capable hands and has amazing mentors like Diddy. Bieber's mother is never far away either so he's not completely surrounded by yes-men only. Plus, Bieber would have his singer/actress girlfriend, Selena Gomez, to get tips from.
Mark Wahlberg made the crossover from a successful rapper to a successful leading man in several movies. 2012 may just be the year Justin Bieber crosses over too.
