Mark Wahlberg has said he could be tempted to rap again - with teenage star Justin Bieber.
The Date Night actor, who last released music nearly two decades ago, reckons he could come out of musical retirement if he was asked by the Baby singer.
"If Justin Bieber asked me, I'd do that for my daughter - she loves me to death, but she doesn't think I'm very cool, so that might turn it around," he told Time.com.
Mark - whose music alter-ego Marky Mark rapped with the Funky Bunch - said he was reluctant to return to the hip-hop world, preferring to focus on acting.
"Before Will Smith, most musicians who made movies were awful," he explained.
"When I decided to go into acting, I definitely wanted to make people forget about my music career."
But iIt looks like Mark could soon be picking up the mic again, as Justin has hinted he is up for the duet.
He tweeted: "Mark let's make that rap song soon."
