Bieber to make fans scream in CSI
Justin Bieber will make fans scream with horror with his highly anticipated appearance on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
The teenage pop star will leave his sugary sweet image behind to tackle darker territory when he makes his small-screen acting debut in the episode, to air on US screens on September 23.
An advert promoting the episode shows Justin in his Baby music video, before swapping to a shot of him behind bars with a guard falling to the ground outside his cell, reported MTV.com.
"He's made millions of fans cry tears of joy... But on CSI, Justin Bieber will make you scream," the voiceover said.
The show's executive producer Carol Mendelsohn said Justin was "perfect" to play troubled teenager Jason McCann.
"He's a troubled young man, raised in the foster-care system, whose hard-luck life has left him scarred and angry," she said to MTV.
"At the end of the episode, we're left with the question: Is Jason a good kid stuck in a bad situation or is Jason a bad kid hiding behind his cuteness? You can see why Justin was such a perfect choice to play this role. It's an explosive story."
