Justin Bieber Is Playing Cupid in a New Animated Movie
Looks like Justin Bieber's taking a break from singing to hone in on his acting skills. Voice acting, that is.
The pop star is teaming up with Mythos Studios to tackle the titular role for their new animated film, Cupid.
"When this project was brought to Justin, he instantly was excited to be a part of it. Fortunately for us, like Cupid, he knows a little bit about love and mischief," Mythos Studios' co-founder and Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, said in a press release.
For those who aren't Roman mythology aficionados, Cupid is the bow and arrow wielding god of love and affection and son of Venus (the goddess of love and beauty) and the War god, Mars.
"Both myself and Scooter have a lifelong love of mythology and we are so excited to partner with Justin to bring the amazing, magical story of Cupid to the world," said David Maisel, Mythos Studios' co-founder.
Bieber confirmed the news on Tuesday (June 5) by posting a sketch of his character with the simple caption "#cupidmovie"
