What, as Anastasia Steele?
Yes, Justin was being interviewed by Jonathan Ross for tonight’s episode of the Jonathan Ross Show when Wossy asked if he’d read the steamy novels – dubbed “mommy porn” by the press.
An excited El Biebs jumped to his feet and shouted “They actually want me to be in the movie!”
Apparently this statement caused such hysteria and mass screaming from the watching audience that Jonathan had to wait several minutes for calm to be restored.
Now, Justin didn’t specify which part in particular he’d been asked to play – but we can’t really see Biebs as mysterious and kinky Christian Grey.
This leads us to only one conclusion. He’s been asked to play Anastasia – the innocent virgin who is seduced by Christian’s dominating ways.
OK, OK WE’RE JOKING – OBVIOUSLY.
Justin went on to tell Wossy that he wants to be "taken seriously as an artist, be known for my music and not necessarily known for a flick of my hair."
Well – A role in Fifty Shades would certainly be pretty serious. What do you think ‘scapers – can you see Biebs as Mr. Grey?
Justin's full interview airs tonight on The Jonathan Ross Show, ITV, 9.55pm
