A new movie trailer and promotional poster for the upcoming DreamWorksAnimation flick Trolls has just been released by 20th Century Fox. Be forewarned: this product contains massive amounts of color, glitter, and music! The tunes are to be expected, though, when you have JustinTimberlake voicing the lead troll, Branch. Timberlake’s only what, like a nine-time Grammy, four time Emmy Award winner? When you hear who else is in the vocal cast, signs of a hit movie soundtrack will be unmistakable. (more…)
Well, this should go over well… Former boy bander and sexy back bringer Justin Timberlake has tossed his hat into the self-indulgent casting rumor ring. Yes, following in the footsteps of Mark Wahlberg and Katee Sackhoff the pop star made an appearance on a radio morning show today and let the whole world know (between traffic and weather) his desire to play the Riddler:
“Now villain. I’ll tell you the villain I want to play more than anything because I grew up loving Batman, funny enough, is the Riddler. The Riddler is my favorite villain… The Riddler was like a sociopath. He was proper crazy. So if I’m gonna play crazy, I’m wanna play proper crazy… I’m ready. The Riddler. Gimme a call.”
Ok, before we all go flying off the handle lets remember this was just an off the cuff response to a conversation about the Ben Affleck/BatFleck casting thing (which, Timberlake said he approved of.) In his defense, JT isn’t a terrible actor, he’s just had some terrible movies… wait, maybe he’d be perfect to play opposite Affleck then!
Internet, begin wailing about how terrible and idea this is in 5… 4… 3…
