Justin Bieber’s basketball skills from the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game seemed to have captured the eye of Hollywood. Paramount Pictures has approached the music sensation to star in a movie about street basketball. Bieber will star alongside Mark Wahlberg. And it appears that Marky Mark has Bieber Fever, “He’s been sending me video, he sent me a video of himself, and I think he’s really talented,” the Oscar winning actor said. “He loves the idea.”
This will not be Bieber’s first acting gig, starring in two episodes of CSI, where he showed off his skilled acting chops. In the movie, Wahlberg will play Bieber’s reluctant mentor.
