The year’s biggest breakout star, Justin Bieber, said he’d welcome playing the lead role in a film remake of the iconic musical Grease, RadarOnline.com has learned, and he’s already got an eye on who his leading lady would be: Miley Cyrus.
The 16-year-old Baby, Baby singer told The UK Sun doing Grease “would be a lot of fun. It’s been talked about a lot over the years, but it would be awesome to play Danny [Zuko, the character played by John Travolta more than three decades ago in the film adaptation of the classic].”
The Canadian teen idol said he’d cast Cyrus as female lead/ his love interest Sandy Dumbrowski without hesitation.
“She can sing, dance and act,” he said of the Disney Channel staple.
Bieber also said he thought fellow YouTube sensation Susan Boyle would make “an amazing Principal McGee.
“We’d just need to write it into the script that she broke into song,” Bieber joked.
Hey Justin, if the singing thing doesn’t work out for you, it sounds like you’d make quite the casting agent; Bieber’s new album, My World 2.0, is in stores now.
