Justin Timberlake just can’t stop acting! The singer-songwriter turned thespian has several films heading to theaters this year including the animated feature Yogi Bear and the highly anticipated David Fincher film, The Social Network. Now according to a report from Deadline, he might team up with his Alpha Dog co-star Amanda Seyfried in the sci-fi thriller I’m.mortal.
The site scooped the casting news that Timberlake had been offered the lead in the film, which will be jointly produced by New Regency and Fox. Finke kind of glazed over that piece of info because it was part of a bigger story that had to do with the whole will he or won’t he join “American Idol” fiasco. And if you’re curious at the moment, he and Elton John are still denying any involvement with the show.
Back to I’m.mortal, the story takes place “in a future society where people can’t age and can only stay alive as long as they pay. Seyfried is playing the role of a woman kidnapped by a man whose time has expired so he goes on the run, taking her with him.” Since his time has expired, shouldn’t he be older than 29 which is Timberlake’s age?
Even though I’m not a fan of the man’s acting I have to admit that he has gotten slightly better since his roles in Longshot and Disney’s Model Behavior. If neither of those titles sound familiar, look up clips on YouTube, his performance will terrify you!
Do you think Timberlake should join I’m Mortal?
