Justin Bieber has landed a small role as a convict in his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez’s new film, “Behaving Badly.”

The “Come and Get It” singer’s latest movie features her as a straight-laced high school student who ends up on a “rock ‘n’ roll-themed odyssey” with her friend, played by “The Fault in Our Stars” actor Nat Wolff.

Their barely-legal shenanigans bring them to a prison, and in a clip from the film, Bieber makes a very brief cameo as a fellow inmate, donning an orange jumpsuit and shuffling in the background of the scene.

Ironically, Bieber’s appearance is art imitating life – the “Baby” hitmaker has had his own slew of legal troubles over the past year, including a DUI charge after he was accused of drag racing with a pal in Miami Beach, Florida in January, allegations he lashed out at a limousine driver in December, and an assault lawsuit filed against him by a paparazzo in Miami following an altercation last summer.
