Justin Timberlake is bringing the sexy back for Bad Teacher

03.02.2010

BAD TEACHER has finally found it's leading man in Justin Timberlake.

The film stars Cameron Diaz as a gold-digging seventh-grade teacher with a potty mouth, who after being dumped by her boyfriend goes after a substitute teacher that also happens to be the heir to a watch fortune. Lucy Punch will play a sweet fellow teacher who is dating the sub. Jason Segel recently joined as a gym teacher and John Michael Higgins is set to play the principal. Molly Shannon and Eric Stonestreet (MODERN FAMILY) are joining the cast as well.

John Krasinski, Joel McHale, Timothy Olyphant, Guy Pearce, Adam Scott and, Cheyenne Jackson (UNITED 93) were in the mix for the leading spot before Timberlake was cast.

The script was penned by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky with Jake Kasdan (ORANGE COUNTY) directing.

Consider me interested in this film. I find it interesting that Timberlake was cast considering he and Diaz used to get it on. That guy gets all the ladies. I have no hatred for Timberlake. He managed to win me over with that drug inducted dance scene he did in SOUTHLAND TALES.

Extra Tidbit: I didn't realize that John Michael Higgins did the voice of Mentok the Mindtaker on HARVEY BIRDMAN: ATTORNEY AT LAW.

Movie sounds interesting, and the cast sounds promising. I love dark comedy and especially in school environments. I would have liked to seen Olyphant or Krasinski instead of Timberlake, but I am sure he will do just fine. Excited to see Jason Segel in this movie as well

The actual film doesn't sound great as it is so I'm not offended or anything Timberlake is in it as I think he did a terrific job stealing every scene he was in in "Alpha Dog." But to beat out Krasinski, Olyphant, Pearce, and the severely underrated Adam Scott? That's a little much to accept.

Wow, never thought I would see the day Timberlake beat out Guy Pearce for a role. But Pearce is too good for this movie anyway. Seriously, dude must need a new agent or something because I can't understand why he hasn't hit it big yet.

Justin Timberlake is the shit

He's the white pop R&B singer that rappers need in his videos. He makes SNL digital shorts awesome. The fact that he used to tap the woman who plays the part of the woman he's gonna tap should automatically put him in the running for an Oscar next year. If you don't agree, its because your heart is filled with poisonous bile, and your ass is impacted with CancerAids.

1st off there's nothing remotely sexy about Timberlake IMO BUT-I sure do like this kid! his guest appearances on SNL are usually fantastic! I like him as an actor-just don't see anything "sexy" in that boyish homely face. Sorry Justin! but I'm sure he would understand.

Interesting

Not a huge fan of Diaz but this sounds like it could be funny. That scene with Justin in Southland Tales was hilarious and I think he does a fine job so I'll check this out
