Justin Bieber and Mark Wahlberg To Star In Movie Together

I don’t think any younger Beliebers were even born yet when Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch exploded on the rap scene in 1991, but former new kid on the block-turned-rapper-turned-actor Mark Wahlberg is set to star with Justin Bieber in a new film, according to the latest from Bop and TigerBeat.
It doesn’t take much for a rumor about the Biebster to get started, but Paramount Pictures has confirmed that this news is actually solid. There isn’t a whole lot of info about the film at this time, but it’s going to focus on street basketball and Wahlberg is going to be cast as a “reluctant mentor in an inner-city environment.” I’m guessing that means Justin is going to be a troubled inner-city kid who discovers basketball is the road to peace and self-improvement. Hey! I’m not knocking it, but it’s a formula that’s been used numerous times. It still has potential to be good.
Wahlberg has also said that neither he nor Justin will be doing any singing or dancing in the film, but that doesn’t mean the Biebster won’t be cranking out something for the soundtrack. Maybe Mark will even dust off his rap roots for a Justin/Marky Mark duet.
