Exclusive First Look! Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz team up on 'Bad Teacher'

(The comedy is due in 2011.) “They obviously know each other really well,” director Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story) says of his stars. “They’re good friends, and they’re both incredibly funny people. I couldn’t be more excited about it.”

According to Kasdan, Diaz is playing no less than the worst 7th grade teacher ever. “She’s usually hungover when she gets to school,” he says. “She’s kind of foul mouthed. And she’s completely fixated on trying to afford breast augmentation surgery, and very open about it. She believes it will help her find the right man who will take care of her for the rest of her life.” Enter Timberlake, as a substitute teacher “who happens to be the heir to a watch-making company,” says Kasdan. “She thinks he seems like a good target.” (Jason Segel rounds out the cast as a gym teacher who pines for Diaz’s character.)

Kasdan says Diaz was the first to come aboard the production, and happily signed off on the idea of playing opposite Timberlake. “They have a shared sense of humor,” he says. “It’s easy for them to be funny together. You know where the jokes are.”

So, PopWatchers, what do you make of Justin and Cameron’s on-screen reunion?

    justin timberlake just might be THE HOTTEST substitute teacher ever.

    • Mimi

      SO TRUE

    • Hedwig

      Agreed! I’m sure no class would play tricks on him!

    • Amy


    • Danielle

      I wouldn’t leave the class…

    • harry

      Amen to that!!!

  • CanadianChick

    Its cute they are in a movie together but that story line sounds stupid!

    • terry

      It does kinds sound stupid, but Kasdan’s dad made Body Heat, so i always check out his flicks. My favorite is still his first, The Zero Effect.

      • sunny

        and Kasdan himself made Walk Hard, which was HILARIOUS so I’m hopeful for this one though it doesn’t sound like much.

    • KEVIN

      I think it sounds great! I was just talking abut something similar with a friend of mine. We were talking about how we see pictures of people partying on facebook and then we realize “Oh my God they are teachers!?!” it is interesting to me, these people who have custody of our children for 8 hours, shouldn’t they be moral guidances?

    • ashlee

      It does sound DUMB. Diaz can be a magnificent dramatic actress. I just don’t understand why she continues to do Dumb Bunny movies.
      JB I can live without, no problem.

  • TK

    I wish Jason Segel would work with talented people.

    • Emma

      He used to. Those were the days.

  • Ryan

    I can’t wait for when Jessica Biel comes to visit JT on set!!

    • Katie

      SO TRUE. Biel was such a step down, and she knows it. HAHAHAHA

      • Emma

        This has got to be the healthiest breakup in history.

      • Tina

        Biel! a step down? No way she has so much more class than Diaz. Not that I dont think Diaz is cute, Biel
        is so much sexier!

  • sally

    This movie sounds fun. I’m sure there will be alot of chemistry between these two. Can’t wait to see it. I’ve always loved Camerons comedies.

    • Emma

      The Sweetest Thing was really underrated.

  • mishka

    How can I say this…I.Don’t.Care. Justin and Cam are so 2003.
    Btw, JT as a teacher? How very “Mr Schu” of him.

    • mscisluv

      I really want to see Justin Timberlake on Glee as Will Schuester’s brother. It would work!

  • Kendra

    I love Justin so much but ehhhh. I’m still trying to figure out the point-and plot- of this movie.

  • abo

    I really wish Justin would get back to singing and dancing…he’s just so good! Music needs him. But, I think they will be cute together.

    • SS

      I agree… honestly I wish they’d do another NSync album.

      • KP

        I wouldn’t object to that, SS! If the Backstreet Boys are still making albums…who knows?

  • Marianne

    It’s nice to see that they can get along.

  • abailey6666

    Justin Timberlake is mor then just music.Damm when will some of his fan see this.Justin Timberlake does what the hell he wants to do without any one permissin. Madd respect Justin Timberlake.

  • Sharlin

    It looks fun.

  • Kalade

    A rich substitute teacher…HA…no such beast exist…you won’t get rich doing it and anyone with money wouldn’t want to.

    • hazel


      • Jackie

        I don’t know, do you ever watch the show “Bones”? Hodgins character is richer than god, but he took his job because he wanted to play with dirt (it was his love).

    • itdoesexist

      Actually, it does. I have a very rich relative that has been a substitute teacher his whole life, because he loves kids, but doesn’t have to work. Its a nice life to lead!

  • Walrus

    I actually prefer his comedy over his singing.

  • Jane

    Sounds like Thoroughly Modern Millie in contemporary times to me.

  • Dave

    Sounds fun. I don’t know what it is, but I’m so drawn to watching Cameron Diaz. I don’t think she’s the best actress out there or anything, but she’s just so likable and charming that I can’t help but root for her and watch her movies. It seems like she’s just an awesome person altogether.
