Singer Justin Bieber has been bitten by the acting bug. The teen sensation, who made an appearance on “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” last year, is keen to take more acting assignments.

“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,” Bieber told eonline.com.

The 18-year-old played troubled teen Jason McCann in 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.

He thinks his big break could come in the shape of a basketball movie he is planning with actor Mark Wahlberg.

“Mark Wahlberg and I have been working on the script for a long time now,” he said.

Wahlberg recently commented that Bieber is a perfect choice for his upcoming film project, assuring critics that the pop star really can act.
