Los Angele: Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber has been singled out for the role of Hobie Bunchannon in the `Baywatch` remake by Jeremy Jackson.

Jackson, 31, who portrayed the character of Bunchannon in the hit TV series, is keen for the `Baby` hitmaker to take on the responsibility of reprising the role for a silver screen remake, reported TMZ online.

He said Bieber is the best man for the job and is even willing to train the 18-year-old in the art of lifeguarding for absolutely no cash. All he wants in return is the chance to drive Bieber`s tricked-out ‘Batmobile’ Cadillac on the weekends.

The TV drama series originally ran on US TV network NBC from 1989 to 1990, following the lives of a group of fictional Los Angeles County Lifeguards.
