I won't be rushing out to see this one when it opens Aug. 28, but it'll probably be a fine rental somewhere down the line. What do you think? To take a look at the trailer, read more
Justin Timberlake, the actor, was spotted on the set of his new movie The Open Road with Jeff Bridges in Louisiana yesterday. He must feel right at home being down south again because he's looking so natural at the gas pump — must be his effortless acting in front of the camera. We can't imagine Jessica Biel is too excited about those rumors about her boy secretly hanging out with Kate Hudson, but spending time in another state should keep JT out of trouble for a while.
Southern boy Justin Timberlake will return to his roots (er, nearby his roots, since he's from Tennessee) when he begins filming his next movie The Open Road in Louisiana later this month. Timberlake will play "a young man trying to reconnect with his father, a legendary athlete, as he struggles to get him home to his ailing mother’s bedside." Most likely, Bridges plays the father and Mary Steenburgen will play the ailing mother.
We know Timberlake can handle physical humor, goofball comedy, gritty drama, whatever Shrek the Third is classified as, and of course, pop princedom. It will be interesting to see him try his hand at what sounds like a heartfelt drama.
Also, he gets to star alongside the Dude! Lucky guy.
