Can Justin Timberlake act?
An IM conversation with Katie (reprinted with permission):
Bob: Can Justin Timberlake act?
Katie: Justin Timberlake can womanize. And pout. Why? What terrible casting just occured?
Bob: New Line is about to announce him as Iron Man.
Katie: NO GOOD CAN POSSIBLY COME OF THIS!!!
Bob: I had a similar notion.
Katie: I hope New Line truly suffers for it.
Bob: But New Line is Time Warner, I want us to proifit at Marvel’s expense, but not necessarily this way.
Katie: This sucks.
Bob: Nick Cassavettes is directing and Timberlake is a far cry from Tom Cruise who wanted to play Tony Stark/Iron Man some years back.
Katie: Tom Cruise would make a perfect Iron Man. Timberlake is a whiny, blond pretty boy.
Bob: sigh. thank you for the confirmation of my fear.
Katie: NP. 🙂
