It's a fact of life for an actor/writer/director after doing a movie: Just before the film debuts, you meet with the press and answer questions like, "What was it like to work with Matthew Modine?" and "Before playing a mime, did you meet with any mimes to prepare?" It's a part of the biz, so to speak, and the process is generally unremarkable.
Except when it isn't. Whether the interview becomes awkward, hilarious, charming or weird, it also always becomes magical, as we saw when the Internet exploded this week over Mila Kunis's playful flirtation with a quirky British chap. Get More »
Good things come to those who wait ... at least in the case of Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake.
Don't count on 'N Sync to follow The Backstreet Boys and 98 Degrees into the '90s boy band reunion show fold. Former lead singer Justin Timberlake is sticking to his guns about becoming a serious actor.
According to Variety, the "Trouble With the Curve" star is now in talks to appear in an upcoming romantic comedy titled "The Last Drop," helmed by "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" director Peter Sollett.
Timberlake, who's kept his rom-com credentials to just "Friends with Benefits" opposite Mila Kunis so far, would portray 30-something Clay, a cavalier food critic with a drinking problem who realizes he'll have to put away the sauce if he wants to have a serious chance with a new lady love interest in the the flick.

What does it mean to be cool? It's pretty damn subjective. So when compiling our list of the 25 coolest people making movies right now (somebody had to do it, right?), we accounted for various factors.
These are the actors who not only impress us onscreen (though that helps), but convey a certain genuineness off it, be it at awards shows, on TV appearances or during our own personal experiences interviewing them. They can be multi-talents, also excelling at music, art or writing. And they can make a habit of turning up in hilarious viral videos or even at your local karaoke bar.
But most of all, these are the 25 actors we'd really just like to sit down and have a beer with.
Welcome to NextMovie's 1st annual Cool List – and let us know who makes your own list in the comments section below. Get More »
Here's a home run of a photo gallery!
Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake and other Hollywood MVPs played ball on the red carpet in celebration of the opening of "Trouble With the Curve," the baseball drama that finds an aging scout (Clint, of course) going for one last inning before retirement — and reconnecting with his daughter (Adams) in the process. Timberlake is on hand to throw some fast balls at the situation as a fellow scout and Adams' love interest.
Check out our collection of pics from the premiere and take yourself out to "Trouble With the Curve" when it hits theaters on Sept. 21.

With the MTV Video Music Awards hitting MTV tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET, we've compiled a list of the 50 best based on a number of factors: creativity of video, quality of actor's performance and, for some, random dancing ability. Our only caveats: no cameos and no soundtracks. The debate begins now. Get More »
"A computer doesn't know if a player has instincts!" We take it the writers of "Trouble With the Curve" don't believe in "Moneyball."
Clint Eastwood plays a somewhat softer version of his "Gran Torino" character (he only yells two or three times and gets into only one bar fight in the trailer) in this tale of a going-blind baseball scout who reunites with his somewhat estranged daughter (Amy Adams) while on one last assignment. Meanwhile, she falls for dad's younger colleague (Justin Timberlake), who introduces her to the joys of doing crazy things like jumping into lakes in the middle of the night. Get More »
Big stars get the big bucks and big headlines, but today we'd like to take a moment to pay tribute to the unsung heroes of Hollywood, the folks who make the movies as cool as they are: The character actors. No movie can succeed without a cast that's solid from top to bottom.
And today, the folks behind the upcoming drama "Runner Runner" have recognized the importance of character actors, as according to Deadline they've signed Anthony Mackie to the cast.
He may not be a big star yet, but sometimes big things start from small parts. Get More »
Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake are gambling on a new thriller.
The duo are set to work together for the first time as they've placed their bets on "Runner Runner," according to Deadline.
"Runner Runner" is set in the world of online gambling and focuses on the increasingly tense relationship between a business founder (probably Affleck) and his protege (probably Timberlake). The screenplay was written by Brian Koppelman and David Levien and sounds very much like a companion piece to "Rounders," their 1998 thriller about high-stakes backroom poker that starred Affleck's pal Matt Damon.
