Justin Timberlake joins cast of Sony’s ‘Bad Teacher’
as reported by The Hollywood Insider at EW.com
Justin Timberlake sure doesn’t have much time for music with his movie career taking off. Fresh off his role in David Fincher’s upcoming Facebook movie The Social Network, Timberlake has signed on opposite Cameron Diaz and Jason Segal in the comedy Bad Teacher from director Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story). He will play a substitute teacher, the scion of a watch company fortune. Also joining the cast of the movie that centers on Segal’s character, an irreverent middle school teacher, are Molly Shannon and Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family’s Cameron.) The film written by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky begins production later this month. [source]
[UPDATE] JT4B posted a quote from an article by E!Online that gave some more detail about the movie’s plot:
The plot chronicles the misadventures of a social-climbing junior high instructor (Diaz) who, upon being dumped by her sugar daddy, sets out to seduce a substitute teacher (Timberlake) who, as luck would have it, is also the heir to a watch fortune.
What do you think? Are you excited about Justin doing another comedy movie?
