Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber is set to take the big step from music into movies, as he swaps singing for acting. Justin has a huge fan base for his music and is set to try and carry that over into the movie industry, as he bids to make a name for himself as an actor.
Justin is currently in talks with The Fighter star Mark Wahlberg about making his acting debut in a movie involving the former Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch artist. Bieber explained, “I'm going to do movies - I'm talking to Mark Wahlberg about my first big movie.”
Justin Bieber has already enjoyed massive success at the box office for the movie Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, which went on to gross an impressive $97.2m worldwide. However, that was a documentary and Justin Bieber is now looking to put his actual acting skills to the test.
Justin Bieber is not the first person to take the step from music into movies, as there have already been a number of successful singers in the acting world. Justin recently admitted that he looks up to Justin Timberlake and Usher, both who have appeared on the big screen.
