Canadian teen singer Justin Bieber has already well-and-truly taken the music world by storm and now he plans to try his hand at acting.

 

Bieber will make his acting debut on the upcoming season of CSI, where he will featurein the opening episode.

The singer will play a troubled teen called Jason McCann who “is faced with a terrible decision regarding his only brother –a decision that leads him into an explosive confrontation with the CSIs”.

“Every 20 years, a phenomenon like Justin Bieber graces our world,” said executive producers Carol Mendelsohn, Don McGill and Anthony Zuiker in joint statement.

“We’d like to believe that the phenomenon of ‘CSI’ has had the same impact on popular culture. The opportunity to bring them together in the premiere is a great treat for our audience and all of its new viewers. This will be true event television. We’re looking forward to Justin’s dramatic star turn, not only in the premiere, but in a continuing seasonal arc.”

CSI has retained original cast member George Eads for more seasons of the crime procedural.

Eads has inked a new deal with the franchise which will see him continue to investigate crime as Nick Stokes.

Eads had previously voiced his concern over the way the franchise pays its stars and was unsure as to whether he would return due to pay disputes.

“There can’t really be a hierarchy when it comes to salaries anymore,” he said. “I feel I deserve to sit at the table with the adults, and we’ll see what happens.”
