Justin Timberlake Tastes 'The Last Drop' with 'Nick & Norah' Director
After getting caught up in baseball and love in Trouble with the Curve, it looks like Justin Timberlake is going to be hitting the sauce. Variety has word that the pop star turned actor is in talks to lead The Last Drop, a romantic and dramatic comedy from director Peter Sollett and the Good Universe production banner, who previously collaborated on the adaptation of Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist. In the film, Timberlake will play a charming alcoholic who works as a restaurant critic for New York Magazine who falls for a young woman and realizes he must overcome his addiction in order to have a real chance with her.
It sounds like this could be another role that really lets Timberlake cut loose and show his acting chops. His more recent fair hasn't been all that challenging, and his turn as an action lead in In Time was less than impressive. So far Timberlake has really shined in comedies and his performance in The Social Network, and some are starting to wonder if his range is a little limited. As for me, I'm waiting to see what he can do with the Coen Brothers in their period folk music film Inside Llewyn Davis that will have Timberlake singing and acting in the same film for the first time.

Nick and Norah took a decent book and turned it into a terrible movie.

Seriously.....come on Hollywood wake up....he can sing and dance, but the acting is HORRIBLE. Sorry to all those hard working actors busting their chops waiting tables only to see this guy booked for the part.....LAME!
