Timberlake to star alongside Freemand and Spacey



Story by: Jack Foley

NOT content with being a hugely successful pop star, or kicking off widespread US controversy for helping to expose Janet Jackson’s boob on live TV, Justin Timberlake now intends to venture into movies - and appears to be serious about becoming a quality actor.

It has been announced that the former ‘N Sync star, who has been dating Cameron Diaz, has signed on to star alongside Kevin Spacey and Morgan Freeman in the crime drama, Edison.

The Grammy Award winner will play a small but pivotal role in a film about a young journalist who uncovers a group of corrupt policemen, with Freeman appearing as a senior reporter, who helps him, and Spacey starring as the District Attorney’s top investigator. Rapper, LL Cool J, takes the lead role.

Timberlake’s publicist, needless to say, is already talking up how seriously his star wants to be taken as an actor, and maintains he has spent years looking at scripts, before deciding on the right project.

Filming on Edison is scheduled to begin at the end of February, in Canada.

Timberlake is no stranger to movies, however, having already appeared in the Disney teen TV movie, Model Behaviour, in 2000.

Edison will also mark the film writing and directing debut for David J Burke, the man responsible for writing such highly-acclaimed TV series, such as Law & Order: Special Victims’ Unit and SeaQuest DSV.
