Forget Crime Scene Investigation.
For at least a couple episodes of the 2010/2011 television season, CSI will stand for Cute Stuff Incorporated.
That's because Justin Bieber will make his acting debut on the September 23 premiere of this CBS drama, portraying a troubled teen who crosses paths with the main characters due to problems he's having with his brother.
Producers say it will be a recurring role, meaning Bieber's character will show up again later in the season. Commence screams of shock and joy, gals!
CSI producers are clearly excited about tapping into a new audience with this casting coup. They said in a joint statement:
"Every 20 years, a phenomenon like Justin Bieber graces our world. We’d like to believe that the phenomenon of CSI has had the same impact on popular culture. The opportunity to bring them together in the premiere is a great treat for our audience and all of its new viewers. This will be true event television. We’re looking forward to Justin’s dramatic star turn, not only in the premiere, but in a continuing seasonal arc.”
In March 2009, Taylor Swift guest-starred on the series. She played a country singer named Haley Jones.
This may be the silliest question we've asked in the history of THG, but are you excited for Justin to appear on CSI?
