Justin Bieber eyes R-rated comedy

After his dramatic turn as a troubled teen on "CSI," Justin Bieber is looking to lighten up by starring in a new comedy with Ashton Kutcher.

According to the L.A. Times, the singer is planning to star in "What Would Kenny Do?",  a story about a 17-year-old who encounters a hologram of a man (Kutcher) who claims to be a 30-something version of him. The hologram then helps the boy navigate the turbulent waters of high school.

But Beliebers beware: The adult-humored film — which is expected to shoot next year — is currently aiming for an R rating.

This isn't the first time Bieber and Kutcher have been attached to the same project. In January, Kutcher revealed he had talked to the teen idol about taking over a revamped version of his prank show "Punk'd."

"He's a nice kid and he's a funny kid — and people don't know he's a funny kid yet … and he's sneaky," said Kutcher. "And I like sneaky people."

    Omg leave justin alone he's only a kid.he doesn't deserve this.all he is, is a normal kid thats dream is to sing.that doesn't mean you make fun of him for that.he even says that he is a normal kid.he likes to spend time with his friends like normal kids so why should we make fun of him for that.he isn't gay and you know that.he may not have a great voice, I think he does.most of you don't have the perfect voice either.so just give the kid a break.

    He's on the Elvis plan: 1) become teen idol, 2) make a bunch of pointless movies, 3) headline in Vegas, 4) die fat and lonely, on a toilet, from drug OD. Beebz, yer on yer way!

    If I am wrong for wanting to protect the future of my women and children, well so be it. Everyone should be proud of who they are. If that makes me a racist, so be it. Now, Beiber fame will die out soon enough. Hell grow up and so will the tween girls that scream for him. They will lose interest and his career will fade. That haircut of his is horrid. Both the old/new one. Whats all the attraction about? He looks more like a girl than a boy anyway. I hope everythings cleared up now.

Ive had this screen name for 8 yrs now, and I dont want anyone to think that the above writings are mine. I am in no way a n!gger lover/supporter, nor am I an ignorant redneck. I happen to be a highly educated white man who believes in preserving the purity of my own race. I am proud to be white and Im a 3 letter man. K-K-K. The other is an imposter. Ignore his ignorance.

    When your last movie was G-rated and showed you praying with your friends and you are now getting a reputation for being an awesome Christian guy, why would you now be willing to throw that away to make an awful comedy with Ashton Kutcher?? Justin is such a good role model right now, I'm so sad that he's willing to make this movie that goes against everything he's said to make an awful movie.

      A good role-model? HELL NO. A good role model should be somebody who actually has talent, unlike this prepubescent boy who says the same words over and over in a song and then auto-tunes it.
      I'm sure the 11-years-old girls that love him would rather see him take his shirt off than pray. Shocking but true.
