In addition, Shawn recently sat down with Larry King on “Larry King Now” where he got candid about a number of subjects including the process making his new album ‘Illuminate,’ being compared to Justin Bieber and why his next big career move may be acting. On acting, Shawn said, “I love acting. In the music videos we’re releasing, you kinda of get to see the acting. I’d love to venture into that land.” Well, he’s already shown those skills on “The 100” so we’d be down for more acting from Shawn.
