Justin Bieber "Would Love To Play Oliver Twist"
JB thinks his poor background would help him to bag the role...
Justin Bieberhas revealed that he would love to play Oliver Twist in a remake of the 1968 classic musical film, Oliver!
According to The Sun, the Biebster is keen to portray the part of the Charles Dickins' character, stating that his underprivileged background would provide the perfect basis to star as the homeless boy.
Speaking to the tabloid about his pre-fame council flat in Canada, the Baby singer confessed: "That place was really dirty. We had mousetraps everywhere because there were mouses - uh, mice - in the house."
The 17-year old added: "I didn't have a real bed. I slept on a blue pull-out couch in my room. We didn't have anything in the fridge, except maybe luncheon meat for school and macaroni and cheese. I'd love to play Oliver Twist."
JB may want to play Twist, but the teen heartthrob did admit that his English accent may need some work, adding: "I can do it a little bit but I'm not amazing at it. When I try it, it sometimes comes out a bit Australian."
In other Bieber news, his 3D concert movie Never Say Never has become the most successful-concert flick in America - surpassing the late Michael Jackson's This Is It.
Domestically, Justin's film has already made $72.2 million since it's release last month, compared to Jacko's This Is It which grossed $72.1 million in 2009.
Despite being a hit in the US, Never Say Never still has a long way to go when it comes to beating MJ's concert themed movie internationally, after This Is It made a cool $189.1 million worldwide.
