Roundup: Justin Bieber Hearts ‘The Inbetweeners’
One cannot ignore the force that is Bieber fever, am I right? The Canadian popstar's face is everywhere, ALL.THE.TIME!
Well, get this. It seems that the baby-faced teen wants a part on the BBC America comedy, The Inbetweeners.
The Mirror reports that Justin Bieber is a massive fan of the BAFTA award-winning show and its hysterical premise.
"I came across The Inbetweeners and, man, it was the funniest thing I had ever seen," Bieber said. "It was so real to actually what goes on at school. So many high school shows try and glamorize [sic] school, but this was real and that's what made it so funny…"
"If they are going to make a fourth series or a movie, I would make sure I was free to do a cameo. If they want me I'm there," he added.
No no no, Biebs, don't go there. Simon will surely be upset when you woo Carly away from him, while Jay's jealousy is sure to explode as you successfully attain his wannabe status as the BMOC. As for Will, he'll most likely find your hair most utterly annoying, but Neil might actually think you're not such a bad guy. Ugh.
Bieber recently tested his acting chops on the season premiere of CSI in September, playing a troubled teen named Jason who battles a few challenges relating to his only brother. He's expected to appear on the show as his storyline develops.
