He may have been snubbed by the Grammys, but Justin Bieber is moving onward and upward. The singer's role in a long-gestating Mark Wahlberg flick has finally been confirmed. He is officially on board and the next hurdle will be figuring out his crazy packed schedule, which just got busier with the announcement of new tour dates, so the in-demand teen can find time to shoot.

“The script’s good and now we’re trying to figure out his whole schedule,” Wahlberg, who will co-star with The Biebs in the film, said.

More details about The Biebs' character have been revealed. He will play a baller -- that is, a smart alec basketball player who is mentored by Wahlberg's character. The setting is the world of inner-city basketball. Since The Biebs has been showing off his taut body via shirtless shots on Twitter, we don't doubt that he will be believable – we mean beliebable -- as an athlete.

We can just envision The Biebs and The Berg bouncing oneliners off one another.

PopCrushers and Beliebers, are you excited to see The Biebs on the big screen? Will you immediately flock to the multiplex to check it out?
