Justin Timberlake signs on to play a record producer in Spinning Gold

09.26.2011

Lately, Justin Timberlake has been doing even more in the acting department than in music. With THE SOCIAL NETWORK, BAD TEACHER, and now SPINNING GOLD, it's kind of hard for him to say that he's "not trying to be a serious actor, you f*ckers". His words not mine.

SPINNING GOLD is a biopic about 1970s record producer Neil Bogart. He handled acts like KISS, Donna Summer, The Village People, and Parliament. The film was scripted by Bogart's son Tim and tells the rags-to-riches story of Bogart, "a dirt-poor Jewish kid from Brooklyn who went on to become a multimillionaire and help define 70s pop culture with his Casablanca label." Bogart died in 1982 at the age of 39 of cancer.

When Timberlake walked into the room he apparently wowed Bogart's son who said, “When Justin walked into the room, that was the moment I had been waiting for 29 years. He has the exact same energy as my father, the same glimmer in his eye.” Production is slated to begin on the indie financed film in 2012.

Also, Timberlake might get a chance to bring his music into the picture since an album is being planned in conjuction with the movie.

No problem with JT doing his thing in hollywood. However, I'm more excited for a possible new JT album than this film.

I like Justin Timberlake. I am not a fan of his music. For that matter, I also like and miss Jared Leto.

And Soloist, please, get a life. I don't say that lightly, you clearly have some sort of personal issue with Justin Timberlake which you need to work out with your therapist or something, because it's not healthy.

Crap

Timberlake can not act.

And making him the main character of this movie? Great idea, because that worked so well for Bad Teacher (Male lead), and Friends With Benefits (Male lead).

There are far worse wanna-be and serious actors out there than Timberlake, who have exhibited less appeal and less talent than the guy (I'm looking at you, Jared Leto) so I welcome more acting from the guy. It makes very little difference to me and I see a lot of potential in him, especially once he ages about 10 or 15 years.

You're joking right? Maybe you should go listen to one of his records again while staring at the poster you have of him in your room.

Not hating him is not the same as being a pussy. So I don't hate the guy. Whatever. Plenty of actors I do hate. I despise the academy for giving Jennifer Hudson an oscar because she can sing and couldn't get a grammy. Don't generalize, douche.
