Justin Timberlake tries comedy again



Tbdjustin082407 When Justin Timberlake isn’t being turned down for hit-making sessions by Britney, he’s been out making deals for plenty of big-screen exposure. Besides his Nov. 9 Southland Tales, JT has signed up to star in Mike Myers’ next film adventure, The Love Guru.

Timberlake will play a hockey star named Jacques Grande, who begins dating a rival’s estranged wife whose husband is helped by Myers’ title character, an American rased by Indian gurus. Does that sound funny? How about Jessica Alba as a hockey team’s owner? Or Verne Troyer as a hockey coach? Yeah, that’ll do, Mike; that’ll do.
