This isn’t any kind of “news,” really, so don’t get your Caped Crusader Underoos in a twist. Justin Timberlake was on the radio this week and conversation naturally turned to his upcoming film with Ben Affleck, Runner Runner. (What? Hunh? Who? Exactly.) Anyway, when asked if he’d consider playing Robin to Ben’s Dark Knight, Timberlake said:

“Not a chance in hell. I ain’t playing Robin. I have no aspiration to ever be a superhero in a movie…Now, a villain! I’ll tell you the villain I want to play more than anything because I grew up loving Batman, funnily enough, is The Riddler. The Riddler is my favorite villain. The Riddler was like a sociopath. He was proper crazy. So if I’m gonna play crazy, I’m wanna play proper crazy.”
First of all, nice use of “ain’t,” J. Tim. Very street. Secondly, oh go munch a f*ck. This isn’t happening. Not in your wildest, peroxide-soaked dreams. Not even Zack Snyder is that dumb. So if this is non-news, why am I posting it? Oh I dunno, let’s just look at Justin’s enigmatic ’90s hair and laugh our way into the long weekend.

Joanna Robinson is already working on the lyrics to “Cry Me A Riddler.” So back off.

  • pnnylne

    Who's telling JT he can act? Look, whoever you are, stop trying to make fetch happen. It's not going to happen.

  • Strand

    None of us came out of the 90s unscathed. It's hard to judge JT when I look at my turn of the century photos. Good God.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    His narcissistic disorder is getting worse, I see.

  • Fher

    i think i'll never get over ''peroxide soaked dreams'' i have soooo many uses for that phrase that i'll never forget it. thanks, you MMD

  • mswas

    Thanks, I needed that.

  • Brian Merritt

    Not a chance. His greatest cinematic contribution is In Time. And that's only because my friends and I drink every time they say the word time.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    In Time: a movie not saved even by Cillian Murphy's face.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    "proper crazy" grumble grumble grumble.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    What does he mean with "like a sociopath"?

  • the dude

    Oh yeah? How does one exactly munch a fuck?

  • I saw an article once(I think it was maybe in Maxim)about how aging rock stars reach a point where they are indistinguishable from middle-aged lesbians, at least in how they dress, anyways. The above pictures reminded me of nothing so much as they do that article.

  • Bert_McGurt
  • Thank you for that. That's an entertaining read right there, plus it helps prove my assertion:

  • John W

    Dear God no.

  • Person

    Timberlake for Wonderwoman!

  • We thought Affleck as Batman caused a shitstorm. I'd organize protests if Timberlake was cast as any significant character in a Batman movie.
