Justin Bieber to star in basketball movie




Justin Bieber is bringing his big hair to the big screen. Mark Wahlberg told E! that he and the 18-year-old singer are working on a script for a movie about basketball. "We got a first draft," Wahlberg said. "They did an edit on the script and got to make some changes and do a little bit of rewrite and polish but I've been in contact with [Justin's] managers and the studio a lot. We just want to make it great and we're getting there."

Biebs will star as a basketball player in the film. "He's a great athlete...he's focused and he wants to have success in the movie world and acting as well," Wahlberg said. The movie could be out as early as next year.

We think it may not do so good. What teenage girl is going to see a movie about basketball? And what dude is going to see a movie starring The Bieber? They should have done something titled Beach Babe Bieber. He can pretend to surf topless instead of pretending to play basketball.  Selena Gomez can star in it, too. She can lay there in a bikini because that's pretty much all she's good at. Now we're talking.
