Justin Bieber performs at 102.7 KIIS FM's 2015 Wango Tango at StubHub Center on May 9, 2015 in Los Angeles, California. 

Justin Bieber may have a cameo in the highly anticipated Zoolander sequel, but don't expect to see him strutting his stuff on the runway (at least not at first).

“I start the movie off. [I'm] the first thing you see in the movie, which is pretty cool," the Biebs revealed in an interview with WWD. "I do this whole, like, parkour sequence. I’ve never really done something like that before."

Showing off his acting chops (and athleticism) is apparently much easier with the help of director and star Ben Stiller. "I didn’t expect Ben to be so hands on…It was really cool to have him direct me in such a non-threatening way," said Bieber. "I wasn’t intimidated at all.”

We can only hope that he prepared for his action-packed Zoolander 2 sequence by watching classic parkour footage.
