In an interview with ShortList.com, Justin revealed his plans to grace us with his musical presence once again and put out a new album after a five-year-hiatus from the studio. "To be honest, my plan would have probably been to do another record, probably right about now. I never stop considering myself a musician," he admitted.
"To me, it's [music] my bread and butter. And I mean that in a personal way -- I don't mean that it finances my 'acting hobbies'. I joke with my friends that I should have a business card saying 'David Fincher put me in a movie', because 'Bad Teacher' got a blessing due to 'The Social Network,' and then 'Friends With Benefits' came out of that," the feature film regular revealed.
Justin continued, "All the movies I've done were just opportunities that came up, but now that they're all coming out back-to-back, people think, 'Oh, he's trying to make a statement by having an acting career.' But it's not like that for me. I don't ever want to stop doing music."
So, it turns out Justin was planning to return to the music biz all along. Well, this is certainly music to our ears!
