Justin Bieber is ready to start a successful acting career and he is convinced that he’d be able to pull off a very convincing 80s version of the Late George Michael.
In order to convince the producers of an upcoming biopic about Michael that he is right for the role, the 22 year old singer even shot his version of two of the legend’s music videos: Faith and Careless Whisper.
According reports, his renditions were so good his entire team is now backing him to get the part.
A source close to the heartthrob confirmed: “Several studio bosses have already shown interest and a couple have remarked that, as well as nailing the voice, Justin could actually pass for a young George with minimal make-up and styling.”
“Justin reckons he is capable of playing George at every age up to his death.”
“But his team believe an older, more established actor would have to be brought in to portray his later years.”
Media Analyst Mike Raia said: “However accomplished Justin’s versions of George’s songs are, there is bound to be uproar. George’s fans will want a British performer to play their idol.”
He was right. One George Michael follower blogged that it would be “a travesty” if “young upstart” Bieber gets the iconic role.
“Scores of music stars think switching to the screen is no big deal, especially if they are cast in a musical film,” he added.
“But very few master the transition. Playing George is quite a complex proposition.”
“Here’s a guy who, after coming out as gay, was still tormented by demons that stopped him leading a normal life.”
The death of George Michael was a shock for his many fans as well as for his family and the legal team is still trying to figure out what exactly happened.
Andros Georgiou, his close friend and former producer alluded that maybe drugs were to blame for his untimely passing, saying: “Crack was one of his favorite drugs. I think his heart just stopped beating.”
