It looks like Justin Timberlake is going to stick to acting for a bit longer before he decides to crank out another CD. Variety is reporting that the In Time actor is set to star in the dramedy The Last Drop, from the mind of director Peter Sollett, who gave us 2008’s Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist.
Timberlake will play a charming alcoholic who works as a restaurant critic for New York Magazine. When he falls for a young woman, he realizes he must overcome his self-destructive addiction in order to have a real chance with her.
I thought Justin Timberlake was pretty good in Friends with Benefits and The Social Network. He’s charming, likeable and humorous, qualities which come off in all of his roles. So even if he’s not going to bring sexy back anytime soon, at least he’ll be on our silver screens again.
What do you think of Timberlake as an actor? Are you a fan?
