[Blind Gossip] Lately, this young star has been making more headlines for his personal life than for his talent. Well, his handlers are desperate to deflect your attention and give you something else to talk about. So, believe it or not, his next big project will be… as the lead in a feature film!
His preference is an action film, but he will settle for a romance. Either way, he wants to prove that he is multi-talented and not a baby anymore. Turning him into an action star or a viable romantic lead would certainly accomplish that (although adults may have a tough time believing him as either one).
Since his longevity as a teen star is running out quickly, his team knows that they may only get one shot at this, that it must be successful, and that it must happen soon. They have already started reviewing scripts and taking meetings with the goal of being in pre-production Q1 2013.
Well 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 came and went. Justin Bieber wanted to transition into a movie star, but it never happened. And it looks like it’s not going to happen any time in the near future, either!
Despite his popularity with the young girls, Bieber could never land more than a guest role on a TV series, or a small cameo in a film. He did CSI in 2010-2011 and a few small voice overs. He was the “Uncredited Alien on the Screen” in Men In Black 3. He will appear in a bit part in Zoolander 3 in 2016.
That’s pretty much it.
Despite acting lessons and hundreds of scripts and lots of auditions, not a single lead in a feature film.
Justin Bieber’s dreams of movie career crushed
FAIL … While his music career is on FIRE, Justin Bieber’s dream of being a movie star is NOT going well.
Insiders say, “Nobody wants him … There are a lot of doors being slammed in his face and he can’t believe it!”
According to Star, “industry insiders are scoffing” at Bieber’s big-screen ambitions. A source is quoted as saying, “Nobody wants him. There are a lot of doors are being slammed in his face, and he can’t believe it. He’s always saying he’s got the movie star looks and charisma, but his attitude stinks.”
Bieber sees his upcoming Zoolander 2 cameo as a “stepping stone,” however, it won’t lead anywhere. “He wants to be in dramas or thrillers, but at this point, he’d be lucky to land a commercial,” they add.
The singer is going to be tied up for the foreseeable future with his “Purpose World Tour.” The run of concerts begins in March 2016 and goes through the following November, but movies are in development for years and that is why he is auditioning now.
“After the tour, he wants to act,” a source tells Naughty Gossip. “He spend the last few years working on his musical comeback and then wants to focus on acting. He is a very good actor and is taking lessons.”
We thought the article was interesting, because it essentially said that same thing that we told you three years ago: That he was working on an acting career. They’ve just moved the time frame back again (presumably because it would be too embarrassing to say that he tried to do it and failed over the past three years).
One final note. Although their “source” saying that he is a good actor, we hear the opposite.
He has taken lessons on and off for about four years now. He just isn’t any good. He is VERY self-conscious in auditions. He doesn’t become the character. He is always Justin Bieber pretending to be someone else. The result is always awkward and unnatural.
Congratulations to everyone who got this one right!
