I know he'll get a lot of sales at the box office from all those Justin Beiber fans so it would make a ton of money but I don't know how much acting talent he's going to get out of him. I did see some of his acting on tv and it wasn't all that great. Who know....maybe it's improved.

Not sure what "it" is because his TV work, well, wasn't very good. It could all be publicity but there is also a possibility maybe he has had acting lessons. I am not a fan of singers turning movie stars. Hardly anyone can pull it off and the large majority make fools of themselves.

Yes, that's exactly what I was thinking too. I sure hope he got some acting lessons. I think they're just counting on his popularity to bring in the money whether he knows how to act or not.
