New Delhi: The Boyfriend singer Justin Bieber 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."
