Just when it seemed like Ashton Kutcher was set to be The One to shepherd Justin Bieber into a new stage of his career that would force us to refer to him as an "actor", a new contender has emerged: Mark Wahlberg. Talking to Vulture, Wahlberg reportedly revealed, "Justin Bieber and I are going to do a movie together," adding that Paramount has already heard the pitch and Bieber "loves the idea." That idea? Well, smelling the reporter's voracious Wahlberg/Bieber intrigue, he wouldn't outright say, but he did tease:
"More of a drama. It's interesting, right? You want to know. They'll probably announce it. They may announce it fairly soon ... kind of like a reluctant mentor in an inner-city environment. You know, I don't want to say."
Ah, good, I always thought we needed sort of a new take on Finding Forrester that makes the story a laughably unconvincing platform for a teen idol. Finally, it will be realized--and with the white Tupac, no less!
UPDATE: It turns out it's a basketball movie.
