Justin Timberlake is so hot right now: His journey from singer to leading man

As Mugatu might say, Justin Timberlake is so hot right now. The 30-year-old performer has been in the public eye for two decades now, but he keeps getting more and more popular. Though he has maintained a varied career, dabling in music, dancing, acting, and comedy, Timberlake has been inching his way into Hollywood for more than a decade now and he may be about to take it to a new level.

'In Time' review - More time, more problems

What if time and money were the same thing? This is the idea behind In Time, a new film by Gattaca writer and director Andrew Niccol. It's a fantastic question and opens up a great metaphor to the way we've already structured our society. I only wish the rest of the film was as inspired as its core idea. Woefully, the characters, setting, plot, and visuals of In Time lack much imagination at all. A great cast and wonderful musical score hold this film together, but the dichotomy of Niccol's fascinating ideas and predictable execution means In Time probably won't stand the test of time.

Bad Teacher review - Diaz gets her bitch on

I wouldn't really call Bad Teacher a movie, so much as it is an hour and a half of Cameron Diaz acting like a complete money-grubbing bitch. I have to admit, it's fun to watch her exploit her coworkers, obsess about finding a man to leech off, smoke a bunch of pot, and try to embezzle money from students to get a boob job. Still, she's never quite as "bad" as the title implies. Her deeds are mean, yeah, but most fall into low grade crimes. Stealing test scores is as bad as it gets.

Ryan Reynolds wins Green Lantern role

According to Reuters, after a lengthy audition process, Warner Bros. finally decided that Ryan Reynolds is the best man to play the DC superhero Green Lantern. Justin Timberlake, Bradley Cooper, and Jared Leto were all in competition for the role. Martin Campbell is set to direct. You may remember him from such films as GoldenEye, Casino Royale, Vertical Limit, and the two Zorro movies.

If the deal is completed, it would make Reynolds the only actor to have played heroes for both Marvel and DC. He recently starred in a comic-book movie, 20th Century Fox’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” in which he played Deadpool, also known as the Merc with a Mouth. The character is being developed for a spin-off in which Reynolds will star. He also played Marvel’s vampire hunter Hannibal King in “Blade: Trinity.”

“Lantern” is Reynolds second stab at a DC Comics hero. A few years ago, he was attached to play the comic company’s speedster “The Flash.” - Reuters

I’m not so sure any one actor should be playing two comic book roles. What do you think?
