(LOS ANGELES) — For a guy who’s not an actor, Justin Bieber has been on screen an awful lot: He’s appeared in two episodes of CSI, as well as in the 2016 Zoolander sequel, Saturday Night Live and other shows, and starred in two hit concert movies. But it appears the Bieb is now serious about wanting to launch an acting career, and is seeking advice from two successful movie stars.
A source tells Us Weekly that on September 12, after the Hand in Hand hurricane relief telethon, which was organized by Justin’s manager, the singer went out to dinner with Adam Sandler and David Spade. “He is trying to educate himself about the industry and learn more about it,” the source dished. “He wants to break into acting and directing/producing.”
According to the source, Justin asked the two comedians to dinner so he could “pick their brains about breaking into the film industry,” adding, “They had a great time! Justin had a lot of questions for them about the movie world.”
By the way, since 2011, there had been talk of Mark Wahlberg and Justin starring in a movie about “street hustle basketball.” In 2015, Wahlberg told ABC Radio that they had a script, but they couldn’t get their schedules to align. When asked if the film would ever get made, Wahlberg said, “Maybe.”
