When Harry Met Sally… posed the question of whether a man and a woman could just be friends without having to have sex. Two upcoming movies are reversing the formula and asking the much more titillating query of whether a couple of hot stars can just have meaningless sex without any emotional consequences. The trailer for No Strings Attached has Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman playing friends who hope their coitus won’t be interruptus by feelings or typical relationship hang-ups. Now, Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis are getting in on the obligation-free action in the red band trailer for Friends With Benefits. (Side Note: With the sex scene between Portman and Kunis in Black Swan, and Kunis with Kutcher on That 70’s Show, all we need is Kutcher and Timberlake to get down to complete this sex quadrangle. Make it happen, Hollywood.) Check out the trailer below. It’s dirty, so, parents, cover the young’uns’ eyes. READ FULL STORY »

Deadline reports that the cast’s Hot-o-Meter has just moved from “atomic bomb” to “universe-devouring supernova,” with news that I Am Number Four breakout Alex Pettyfer and White Collar star Matthew Bomer will also be acting in the dystopian drama. (Fox confirmed Pettyfer’s and Bomer’s casting to EW.) Combined with a nifty premise — in the future, people can live forever, but time itself becomes a currency to prevent overpopulation — Now looks like it might be the Andrew Niccol comeback that I (and maybe five other people on earth) have been waiting over a decade for. READ FULL STORY »Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, and Olivia Wilde are already starring in Andrew Niccol’s upcoming sci-fi film NOW (which was titled I’m.Mortal until the marketing department stopped laughing and got serious for a second). Now,
Last night, Justin Timberlake, star of The Social Network (as well as a recent Dave Karger video interview) and EW’s current coverboy, was Jimmy Fallon’s guest. After JT and JF did the interview thing (wherein JF created a semi-awkward moment by telling JT he excelled at playing a “creep” in Social Network), they took to the stage and graced the audience with a history of hip-hop. From the Sugarhill Gang to the Beastie Boys to Snoop Dogg to Jay-Z, they seamlessly rapped their way through three decades’ worth of music. JF held his own just fine, but JT really stood out (doesn’t he always?). Obviously, the guy knows how to rock a mic — and what a master mimic he is! Naturally, the audience ate up the dudes’ act like candy from Annie Barrett’s office. My favorite part? Their bro-hug at the very end.
Check out the videos (below). Should they make this a regular thing? What musical genre should they tackle next? The history of country? The history of punk rock? The history of R&B?
Yahoo! Movies has released a series of new clips from the highly anticipated David Fincher film, The Social Network, which opens Friday. All in all, it just makes me more psyched to see the film this weekend. That is, if I can nab a ticket — After all, it’s already been hailed as one of the best movies of the year.
In terms of the newly released clips, one of the best ones is this short moment between Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield in which Eisenberg, playing Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, starts plotting out a loose plan for the groundbreaking site. Also, Garfield is for some reason wearing a sombrero, which makes the scene all the more awesome. READ FULL STORY »
Is there anything Justin Timberlake can’t do? He sings. He dances. He acts. He was in the Mickey Mouse Club. And now, apparently, he directs tequila commercials! Now, I’m not exactly sure what exactly is going on in this ad: A woman in a skimpy dress is talking very seriously to someone about …. something (empires? cake? “remotest provinces”?). Then all of the sudden, just as you’re wondering whether “remotest” is actually a word — whoops! wardrobe malfunction! — her dress comes off and she appears to engage in a sexual act with a guy who has become inflamed with passion by her weird monotone rambling. It may not make a whole lot of sense, but hey, tequila makes you do crazy stuff, right?
What do you think of J.T.’s tequila ad (embedded after the jump)? Does it make you want to hit the bottle? Do you think Timberlake has a future as a commercial director? If so, what other products would you like to see him bring sexy back to? READ FULL STORY »
Deadline reports. Not the current TV pilot, or Paramount’s in-the-works Ashton Kutcher-Natalie Portman film of the same name. But a movie from Screen Gems. The plot: “A headhunter recruits a magazine editor and since each is too busy to find a mate, they agree to sleep together with no strings attached. Things get complicated when the guy falls for the girl, who’s dating someone else.” I just realized I have yet to actually see any of Timberlake’s film acting, but from SNL appearances, I know he can do risqué comedy. And from the looks of him rockin’ this bow tie — and another one as a substitute teacher in the big-screen comedy Bad Teacher, which he’s currently filming with ex Cameron Diaz — I suppose he can pull off a head hunter. (Or magazine editor, whichever he plays).Justin Timberlake is in talks to star in the romantic comedy Friends With Benefits,
What’s your take on Justin Timberlake: comedy’s new leading man?
After successful stints on SNL and even as host of the ESPY Awards, you’d think that Justin Timberlake would oh-so-naturally achieve greatness in the world of film. But au contraire, JT-lovers. If his track record — including Alpha Dog and Black Snake Moan — is any indication, he’s still got some work to do transitioning from TV to film. You can’t help but hype the movie career of a guy who created magic using a box and his male appendage, but without a new “Sexy Back” or “Dick in a Box” to keep us interested, what does a fan have to look forward to?
Well, in his newest role in Jake Kasdan’s Bad Teacher, Timberlake joins Jason Segel and Modern Family‘s Eric Stonestreet for a comedic romp that could serve as a pretty good tutorial for young Timberlake — not to mention providing interesting on-set chemistry with Timberlake’s former girlfriend, Cameron Diaz. I may not love Segel on How I Met Your Mother, but I couldn’t deny the genius script behind Forgetting Sarah Marshall, which the actor co-wrote. As for Stonestreet, can you say, best-part-of-Modern-Family? I think so!
Let’s put the negativity aside and cross our fingers for JT.
