Mark Wahlberg starring with Justin Bieber in upcoming movie. Wait, WHAT?

Apr. 28, 2011by:

As a former teen pop singer and "Tiger Beat" cover boy himself, Mark Wahlberg could probably serve as some kind of inspiration to Justin Bieber, who looks to segue into acting once his singing career is over. But the two starring together in a movie? It may sound too ridiculous to be true but Wahlberg himself scooped the news.

Speaking at the Time 100 Gala in New York City (celebrating the magazines "100 Most Influential" list), Wahlberg said, "Justin Bieber and I are going to do a movie together...Were doing it at Paramount. We pitched them the idea and, you know, were talking about doing it. He loves the idea....I think hes really talented."

Wahlberg, who once said Bieber was the "white Tupac," has some new found clout at Paramount after his FIGHTER was nominated for a slew of Academy Awards and Bieber does as well with his NEVER SAY NEVER documentary bringing in some serious coin for the studio.

So what could this Wahlberg/Bieber team-up entail? Wahlberg says it's a drama and "kind of like a reluctant mentor in an inner-city environment." Oh so that movie we've seen 100 times before? And are we supposed to believe that Bieber is one of the tough inner-city kids? Although if he was some crazy killer on "CSI" anything is possible.

You how in cartoons when a character is hungry and he pictures another character as a fried chicken or a steak.
Just look at that picture above and you can see Bieber turning into a big bag with a dollar sign on it.

hate just to hate

I'm throwing up a positive comment not because I'm excited for this, but because I bet 99% of people here who are giving this article negatives are hating just to hate, jumping on the bandwagon of screw-Bieber, etc.

I mean really, are any of you people here even in his core age target/audience? Didn't think so. You might as well go comment on an even younger target age topic and go bash the shit out of Dora the Explorer because it's lame and it's 'for pussies'.

Sure I'd like to see

Sure I'd like to see Wahlberg do something else with his time yeah, but I'm not in control of that and whining like a baby that he's working with someone you don't like is just lame. Do you ever cry when A-list actors work with that famous teen-raping director who hides in europe now? No.

Thumbs down this if you really want to try to deny it's true, but for the majority of you, it is true - hating just to hate.

I personally have no problem with him as a person, I just despise his music, but I hate all corporate, bubble gum pop like that, and I don't waste my time running him or any other acts like that down, I simply don't listen to the music. It's nothing personal and I thought he actually did a good job in CSI. I just think comparing him to Tupac is a tad much. I know your post was geared in a general direction, but that's my two cents.

You see, people like you I can respect - and I'm even like you. I don't like his music and I don't like most pop music, but I don't feel the need to run around with my head cut off saying how much he sucks dick.

Totally agree on the Tupac statement though, but my comment wasn't aimed at the people getting upset about that.

I completely agree with you. Seeing people constantly complaining about something that isn't SUPPOSED to appeal to them gets really old. +1

I am a big fan of Wahlberg and think he is a great actor, but this is just plain stupid.

If he wants to have a serious film career, then this is definitely the wrong way to go.
