It only took eighteen years plus a few pubic hairs, but the epic story of teeny-bopper singing sensation Justin Bieber is finally getting the grand Hollywood treatment. It has recently been revealed that two time Oscar winning actress Hilary Swank will portray Bieber in "Million Dollar Bieber." Swank is eager to try her luck again after her first biopic about pilot Amelia Earhart crashed and burned at the box office. Internet rumors have long suspected that Swank and Bieber are actually the same person so it's no surprise that the talented actress nabbed the much coveted role from the large pool of thespians vying for it.
Even though she already closely resembles the pop star, Swank has been working with some of the best makeup artists in the business to complete her transformation into Beebs. "He's a guy that kind of looks like a girl, and I'm a girl that kind of looks like a guy," Swank says. "The key is to merge the right amount of feminine and masculine qualities into one and I think we'll be able to do that!" Hilary will also be developing a more method acting approach to her new role and will be insisting that everybody refer to her as Sweebs on the set. "We'll be chronicling his earliest days on Youtube all the way to the groupie paternity scandal," the actress said in a determined voice. "That's a lot of dramatic material to cover for the four years he's been on the scene! People absolutely need to believe I'm Sweebs, and referring to me as such only helps my performance!"
Beebs on the left and makeup enhanced Sweebs on the right....or is it the other way around?
Studios have high hopes that "Million Dollar Bieber" will stand next to other great biopics about musicians such as "Ray" and "Walk the Line." Could Swank's performance as Sweebs net her a third Oscar nomination? Audiences will have to wait until spring of 2013 to find out, and Bieber will have to wait another two years after that to be old enough to buy beer. A most unbearable wait either way you look at it!
