The `Boyfriend` singer has been bitten by the acting bug and hopes to be cast in more roles in the future following his appearance on `CSI: Crime Scene Investigation` in 2011.
Justin told E! News: "I hope to do some more acting. I have only done a few things like `CSI`, but I really want to do some more acting."
The 18-year-old heartthrob played troubled teen Jason McCann on two episodes of `CSI` and most recently made a cameo appearance as an alien in `Men In Black 3` alongside Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones.
The teen sensation - who is currently dating Disney star Selena Gomez - thinks his big break could come in the shape of a basketball movie he is planning with `Ted` actor Mark Wahlberg.
Justin said: "Mark Wahlberg and I - we`ve been working on the script for a long time now." Mark recently commented that Justin was the perfect choice for his upcoming film project, assuring critics that the pop star really "can act".
He joked: "It`s set in street hustling basketball... Obviously, [Justin] is a very good athlete. He can play. But I also really think he can act."
"We`re just going to have to make him realise that he`s playing a character so he can`t have the same hairdo.
