OK two pieces of news on insanely popular singers getting movie roles. First a good one: one of the most talented music stars, Justin Timberlake, has been offered the role in "I'm.Mortal", the sf movie directed by Andrew Niccol that I wrote about last month. The story takes place in a future where the aging gene has been eliminated and immortality is granted to those who can afford it, with "time" essentially becoming society's currency. Amanda Seyfried will play a girl who gets taken hostage by Justin's character (if he takes the role), who murdered a man for his "time" and goes on the run. Now, if this really happen, Justin and Amanda could possible become the most adorable movie couple ever. Justin Timberlake has already proved a few times before that he has serious acting skills as well, giving solid performances in "Edison",
"Alpha Dog" and will star in "The Social Network" and "Friends With Benefits".

The bad news is that pop-tart Rihanna will make her debut on film in what is already considered one of the most unpromising upcoming movies - "Battleship", a sf action which takes place across the seas, over the skies and land in a battle for planet survival against a superior alien force. Taylor Kitsch will be a naval officer who leads the fight while Alexander SkarsgÄrd will play his brother. This movie is basically an adaptation of Hasbro's naval combat board game and as some jester said somewhere around Internet today - when the aliens start attacking, Rihanna will tell everyone to get under her umbrella, ella, ella...e,e,e ... :)


  1. NO! PLEASE GOD NO!!!!!! Not Rihanna! Then again, I don't plan on watching this film, so they can make it as bad as they want. As for Justin Timberlake my initial reaction was the same, then I remembered how hilarious he was on SNL, so he clearly has the acting skills. May not be too bad of a film. Thanks for the heads up!


  2. I had the very same reaction, Bryan - first NOOOOO, and then WHO CARES, I'M NOT WATCHING IT ANYWAY :)))
    And Justin really is great - not just a great musician but also a promising actor.

  3. Please, please, PLEASE tell me that, when the Aliens attack, they shout out co-ordinates just before their lasers fire.

  4. Oh, I think I'll have to see I'm.Mortal now. I'm a closet Justin lover (especially when you put up pics like that! :) As for Rihanna, that's just painful. Who makes these decisions, anyway?

  5. @MJenks
    no, the aliens shout out WE CAME TO CONQUER YOU IN THE NAME OF OUR EMPRESS LADY GAGA :)And here's the proof for that: http://hollywood-spy.blogspot.com/2009/11/lady-gaga-as-alien-conqueror.html

    You must see I'M.MORTAL if you love intelligent sf plots and beautiful actors. And you know I always post just the best pics :))

  6. I used to have a huge crush on Justin when I was a freshman in high school I think. Too funny.

    Not a huge Rihanna fan. I love that you call it an unpromising upcoming movie. grins.

  7. I always like when JT is on Saturday Night Live. He's a decent actor, I saw him in a small role about a teen kidnapping that was pretty good (can't remember the name of it).
    Again, the movie Battleship doesn't sound like my cup of tea. Except for Skarsgard of course! Surprised that Rihanna is in it!

  8. Hi DEZMOND - I like Justin. He's purty.;) And gorgeous. And a good actor. And funny. Yeah, I'll have no problem watching this movie.

  9. Hi Dez,
    I agree Justin has skills and a future in film~

  10. I have seen Justin in concert. He is a hottie.

    Amanda Seyfried has became quite popular here lately.

    Hope he takes the role, I think they would go good together.

  11. Life was going along just fine today until I had to see that Timberlake photo. I guess something for the ladies.

  12. @Kristin
    well, the movie really is a target of ridicule these days, and especially now after Rihanna has joined its cast.

    oh, and I was afraid you wouldn't notice Skarsgaard in the cast :PPP

    he really is one of the prettiest men that ever lived on this planet.

  13. @Ellie
    glad you agree :)

    Yes, Amanda has been getting a lot of new roles in Hollywood and I mention her often.

    the pic made you jealous and envious? :PPP

  14. I'm glad I'm not the only one who had that reaction to this news.

    I haven't seen JT in anything, not that I remember anyway, if he is a good actor I'm glad for him.

    OML :)
