Mark Wahlberg to co-star with Justin Bieber?

First Ashton Kutcher wanted to make a movie with Justin Bieber, and now Mark Wahlberg is fighting to put him in a film.

"Justin Bieber and I are going to do a movie together," Wahlberg tells Vulture of the Paramount Studios project. "We’re putting it together… We pitched them the idea and, you know, we’re talking about doing it. He loves the idea. He's been sending me video, he sent me a video of himself, and, yeah, I think he’s really talented."

According to Deadline, Bieber will play a street-basketball player in the drama, which Wahlberg tells Vulture will center on a "a reluctant mentor in an inner-city environment."

Though the artist formerly known as Marky Mark says there will be no singing or dancing in the movie, he insists that he could still bust a move or two if necessary.

"Only for my kids and my wife," he says. "If I had to, but I’ve, you know, that’s the last resort. I’ve worked really hard to get away from that whole thing, but you never know. I may just end up coming back full circle."

      That would be the Hanson brothers of the band, Hanson, and not the hockey-playing Hanson brothers from Slapshot........

    I think they should do, "Leave it to Bieber" with his older brother Wahly.

    of all these comments, not a one of you picked up on the fact that the Biebs sends videos of himself to Marky Mark???
    I'm sure that they're tastefully done.

    This is good for their bank accounts! This is all that celebrities do and milk each other for more cake in the bank. F*** Art, let's inflate our bank accounts!

    Christ I can't wait for JB to disappear from the media....a roll of toilet paper is more talented and certainly more useful than JB will ever be. Each time I see him in the news it reminds of why women should think twice about abortion...if ever there was just cause....

    Whoever posted these first three responses is obviously the same person, and a moron as well.
