Former N’Sync boybander, Justin Timberlake, is set to star in his first leading role in the upcoming action film, Stop Loss. In the film, Timberlake will play a Rambo-like American war hero returning home from the Iraq war after quitting the military. The Army wants him back, but he refuses. Although the producers initially balked at the idea because they felt Timberlake wasn’t “macho” enough, Timberlake convinced them to gamble on his acting talents.
“Justin is thrilled about getting his first leading role. It is a huge challenge for him and he’s excited as well as nervous.”
Yeah. This might be more macho if they cast Marshal Bravestarr or Strawberry Shortcake. Maybe Dora the Explorer. I only vaguely remember watching something on the news about a war recently, but I’m pretty sure I didn’t see any soldiers fighting off insurgents with nothing but the power of breakdancing and their sexy falsettos.
