For its fifth episode, Atlanta had some fun with Justin Bieber and cast actor/musician Austin Crute to play him up as obnoxious (and Black) as he wants to be. But don’t let that biting pop ditty fool you – Crute has his own story to share with the world.
The 20-year-old NYU student is a former contestant on The Hub’s reality show Majors and Minors and dropped a completely self-produced and self-written mixtape called PLAY this past summer. Just before his role on Atlanta, he also played the part of Seaweed in NYU’s live rendition of Hairspray.
