mark wahlberg talks casting justin bieber

Tell us the truth, Mark! Did'ja cast him because UR daughter has got some serious Bieber fever??? LOLz!

Back in April, we heard that Mark Wahlberg was taking Justin Bieber under his cinematic wing and casting him in his new basketball movie.

Now, Mark has opened up about his decision to cast the Biebs. Here's what he had to say about it:

"Intuition. I'm prety intuitive."

"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."

And if it's NOT there??

"If not, I will extract it."

Ha! More from Mark about the movie:

"Think of The Color of Money. I get this call from Paramount [with a story about] an old guy and a young guy."

"We pitched [Paramount] the idea and, you know, we're talking about doing it. [Bieber's] been sending me video, he sent me a video of himself, and, yeah, I think hes really talented."

Sounds great, Mark! We're VERY intrigued to see the Biebs on the big screen playing someone other than himself!

Keep us updated!
