Justin Bieber is back on “CSI” as troubled teen Jason McCann, and we have a sneak peek at his explosive performance!
“I’m not a bad person, so it’s funny to play a bad person,” says Justin, adding of his debut appearance on the show, “It started in the first one where I bombed a funeral. Yeah, it sounds bad, but I bombed a funeral.”
As for the plot of this week’s episode in which his character returns, the producers are keeping it mostly under wraps, but suffice it to say that Justin looks a little banged-up and worse for wear. He’s also reunited with “CSI” team member Nick Stokes (George Eads), who vows to protect him.
So, why do “CSI” again? “First of all, I think it’s a really cool show,” says Justin, who also reveals that his grandpa is a big fan of the show. “You know, I wanted to do something that’s going to be challenging for me, and this is definitely going to be. It has been.”
Justin also says that his dream role would be to do a comedy with Will Ferrell: “Like play his son, or something funny like that,” he says with a glint in his eye. “What’s up, Will!”
“CSI” airs Thursday night at 9/8c on CBS.
