Justin Bieber to guest star on CSI Sept 23, 2010


What better way for Justin Bieber to begin his transition from floppy-haired pop star to Serious Grown-up™ than by appearing on a CBS crime procedural that dispatches with its guest stars in the most graphic ways imaginable?

On Thursday, CBS said that Mr. Bieber has been cast in the season premiere of “C.S.I.”, which is scheduled for Sept. 23. According to a news release, the 16-year-old singer will play Jason McCann, “a troubled teen who is faced with a terrible decision regarding his only brother—a decision that leads him into an explosive confrontation with the CSIs.”

The release added that this appearance is “the beginning of an emotional story that will conclude later in the season,” suggesting that Mr. Bieber will return to induce further squeals from Laurence Fishburne, Jerry Bruckheimer and the whole “C.S.I.” gang in subsequent episodes.
