Mark Wahlberg could be the savviest guy in show business: He predicted the inevitable take over of Taylor Lautner, he opened a burger joint named "Wahlburgers" and now he's taking Bieber fever to a whole new level.
The star announced plans to team with the angel-faced Justin Bieber for a dramatic feature film. The two teased their upcoming collaboration at the MTV Movie Awards, "Think of The Color of Money," Wahlberg said. So in the year 2012, Mark Wahlberg and Justin Bieber are the new Paul Newman and Tom Cruise? Sure, why not!
As for Wahlberg's decision to cast the Biebs, he said it came down to sheer intuition.
"I see the guy and spent time with him and you see what he does and how he does it and then you actually have a conversation with him and it's there," Wahlberg told MTV.
"If not," he joked, "I will extract it."
Wahlberg next appears in the duct tape-happy action thriller "Contraband," which hits theaters Jan. 13.
