Justin Timberlake’s transition to acting has been quite a mixed bag with movies ranging from the great (The Social Network, Black Snake Moan) to the decent (Friends with Benefits) to the terrible (In Time). He’s currently on screen with Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams in Trouble with the Curve but for his next project he’ll be moving away from the diamond to the word of food critics in The Last Drop. Timberlake will play a charming alcoholic who works as a restaurant critic for New York Magazine. When he falls for a young woman, he realizes he must overcome his self-destructive addiction in order to have a real chance with her.
Say what you will about Timberlake but his filmography is full of interesting projects. He’s in the next film from the Coen bros. Inside Llewyn Davis and recently wrapped production on an online gaming drama with Ben Affleck and Anthony Mackie. I’ve always found him an engaing presence in any role, bringing a star charisma many actors don’t have, so it will be interesting to see what he can do in more traditional romantic comedy fare.
