Justin Bieber offered Fifty Shades role

2012-09-17 15:45
Los Angeles - Justin Bieber has been asked to star in upcoming movie Fifty Shades Of Grey.

The 18-year-old star was appearing on the Jonathan Ross's chat show in the United Kingdom when he revealed film bosses have asked him to act in the motion picture version of the S&M novel.

During the programme to be screened on Saturday Justin confessed that he could have played Christian Grey.

He admitted: "They actually want me to be in the movie!"

The part would be far from the innocent image Justin has portrayed in his pop career so far.

'I'm always going to be their Justin'

In the book, Christian has a room full of whips, handcuffs and masks for use on submissive women.

Justin also revealed to the presenter that he has banned himself from discussing his love life.

He is currently dating 20-year-old actress Selena Gomez but says he does not want to anger his admirers by talking about their romance.

He said: "At the end of the day I'm always going to be their Justin, regardless of who I'm dating.

"I like to make sure my fans are comfortable."

The heartthrob wants to be known for his abilities as a musician and not his good looks.

He added: "I love being young and being in the spotlight but I want to be taken seriously as an artist, be known for my music and not necessarily known for a flick of my hair."

      I haven't read these books but I understand Christian is some middle-aged man??? Is this article accurate?

      @ Charles. Christian Grey is 27 or 28 years old.

    The novel is based on my life

      Preshen, you are without a doubt the super troll of news24, I owe you a Bells.

      angela.monaghansandells - 2012-09-17 19:23

      Haha Love your comments Preshen. Good sense of humour.

      @Abra "super troll"? More like super legend!

      Tossed.you wish don't you?

  • Mark2349 - 2012-09-17 16:11

    I think he must be confused, they probably offered him a role as one of the submissive women.

      ashton.bieske.9 - 2012-09-18 08:26

      I cant stop laughing! This has made my day!

  • marlys.heijboer - 2012-09-17 16:14

    Hated the book and I'm certain the movie will be another train wreck. However, the question begs... How old will Ana Steele be? Christian Grey is in his late 20's, but they cast an 18 year-old Bieber. Will the actress cast as Ana Steele be a 12 year old? A disaster in the making...

      jaqueline.d.meyer - 2012-09-18 03:20

      Hey! Was just wondering, why'd u hate the book?

  • michelle.nepgen - 2012-09-17 16:39

    Ja, he will be perfect to play the scared little 4 year old

  • catgirl1971 - 2012-09-17 17:04


  • penny.stone.589 - 2012-09-17 17:13

    Definitely will take the lead female role. Eish, but he's a pretty lad. No ways is he masculine - just look at those pouty lips. And both ears pierced. Say no more...

  • jay.kganyago.5 - 2012-09-17 17:54

    What they don't mentiuon is he was offered the leading lady role. You are not known for a flick of your hair Justin, you are known for looking like a girl.

  • joanne.johnson.71868 - 2012-09-17 18:14

    must have been for the role of Jose - can't be for anything else!

  • ruanpretorius1980 - 2012-09-17 18:56

    If Justine plays Christian Grey, it would be more like Christine Gay

  • angela.monaghansandells - 2012-09-17 19:30

    Hahahahaha!!! If he gets the leading role then I'm going to have to subject myself to the movie for a good laugh.

  • cindi.taitbasson - 2012-09-17 19:36

    They probably mean he will play the roll in the "comedy" version of 50 shades lol get real Hollywood

  • nicolas.cocolas.1 - 2012-09-17 19:55

    Didn't know there was a little girl in the novel .....

  • nicolas.cocolas.1 - 2012-09-17 19:56

    Didn't know there was a little girl in the novel....

      cherri.pye.5 - 2012-09-17 21:27

  • arleenealexa - 2012-09-17 20:01

  • cherri.pye.5 - 2012-09-17 21:26

    Oh my goodness, this must be a joke! What does this little pipsqueak know?

  • tamishka.ra.5 - 2012-09-17 23:58

    if this childs acts in fifty shades then it wud definatley put a damper on all of us who read the novel and put our own imaginative face to hedonistic Christian. Shud'nt dis child be somewhere infatuated like al other 18 yr olds.......definatley not staring in dis kind of movie.........da director needs his head checked

  • jaqueline.d.meyer - 2012-09-18 03:17

    HELL TO THE N.O. This is just SICK, isn't child porn illegal?? He would NEVER, I REPEAT NEVER, be able to pull this one off!!! DO NOT DO IT!!!

  • brionyl.french - 2012-09-18 05:30

    I now certainly wont read or watch it

  • Leigh Nicholl - 2012-09-18 06:47

    is this some kind of sick joke?

  • sisie.indola - 2012-09-18 07:07

    Oh pleeeeze - this is a child - to star in this you need experience and the only experience he has is with his hand.

  • nerasmus1 - 2012-09-18 07:29

    No, no, no! As if the books wasn't torture enough, now they want to go and ruin the one film adaptation my husband was really looking forward too. Though I might say that Biebs could make a good Ana Steele...but a Christian Grey?! Think my libido just fell to non-existent.

  • heidi.hill.167 - 2012-09-18 07:52

    If Bieber is in the film it will be rated child pornography !

  • elrichsarah.cloete - 2012-09-18 11:15

    I read somewhere that they were going to use Ian Somerhalder for the role....? He would be perfect. What the hell happened now??

  • lizanne.fivaz - 2012-10-11 11:53

    NOOOOO!!!!! He's a kid man! My pic for the role would be Eric Dane (Mark Sloan or McSteamy in Greys Anatomy).
