Justin Bieber is to guest star in 'CSI'.
The 16-year-old singing sensation will play troubled teen Jason McCann in the season premiere of the US drama show, and his character's story will play a big part in the whole series.
A spokesperson for network CBS told E! Online: "He will play 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. It is the beginning of an emotional story that will conclude later in the season."
Speaking about his new venture, Justin - who is currently on a world tour - tweeted: "Morning world... we got the acting coach here... learning 'a new craft.' "
CBS seem very excited to have got Justin onboard, saying in a 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."
Justin is not the first pop star to appear in the police drama.
Last year, Taylor Swift had guest role, playing a country singer.
