According to NME, Justin Bieber let it “slip” during an interview with TV’s Jonathan Ross that he has been approached to play a part in the upcoming screen adaptation of EL James’ steamy novel Fifty Shades of Grey. What part, he didn’t specify, but the book really only has one important character worthy of the Bieb’s attention: kinky businessman Christian Grey.
Unsurprisingly, the Beliebers are totally into it:
WHAT? OMG. WE WERE ALL DREAMING ABOUT JUSTIN BEING IN 50 SHADES OF GREY AND ITCOULD BE TRUE. OMFG. dailystar.co.uk/news/view/2722…

We’ve read the books (OK, who hasn’t?) and while Bieber is quite the alluring figure to his adoring fans, unless 95% of the story gets PG’d and the film goes Pixar, there’s little to no chance Hollywood will be casting the pop star as misunderstood sexual deviant Christian Grey. If Bieber’s about to break into film (and we sincerely hope he doesn’t go the Timberlake route) why waste his singing and dancing talents on a film…with no singing and dancing? These hypothetical situations aside, Bieb would do quite well in a “Footloose”-esque remake (Zac Efron in “Hairspray,” anyone?)
Meanwhile, let’s let our national treasure age gracefully. And if by 25 he still wants to be in the Fifty Shades film? Well, it’s a trilogy.
