Justin Bieber as a stone-cold bomber? You’d better believe it – the 16-year-old idol of millions makes a return appearance on “CSI” Thursday night (9/8c on CBS) in the role of troubled youth Jason McCann.
It’s a rare, dramatic turn for the baby-faced singer of “Baby” – and he gets to emote a-plenty on the CBS forensics drama. Does Justin have the right stuff to act with the likes of George Eads (macho CSI Nick Stokes), with whom he shares several scenes?
As Sarah Palin might say, “You betcha!” Watch as Justin takes out his anger on one of our most pervasive icons of new technology – his cellphone – which he smashes to smithereens with a baseball bat, like a veritable Babe Ruth of teen angst.
Preview “CSI” with The Biebs:
He’s been on “CSI” before for a storyline in which the CSIs were forced to kill his brother. So why is Jason/Justin back? One word: Revenge!
We won’t reveal any more details of what happens to Jason, Nick or any of the CSIs, except to say: This is one explosive guest-starring appearance.
Meanwhile, in the episode’s other storyline, CSI chief Ray Langston (Laurence Fishburne) tangles with serial killer Nate Haskell (guest-star Bill Irwin), who nearly killed Langston with a homemade prison shank. The episode reveals that Langston and this unrepentant psychopath have more in common that you might think.
It’s all on “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” Thursday night at 9/8c on CBS.
