Justin Timberlake To Star In Baywatch Movie? Yes Baywatch movie.

I'm still wondering why they are making a Baywatch movie. Never mind who the star is going to be, but...... Blonde, boobs & bikini will always make money.

The Internets are abuzz this morning with a rumor that the producers of the long-in-the-worksBaywatch movie are considering Justin Timberlake for the lead. According to, he’d play “a disgraced former Olympic swimmer who tries out for the Baywatch crew.” This sounds like awesomeness along the lines of Jonah Hill’s and Channing Tatum’s 21 Jump Streetcharacters, which renewed our faith in all TV-show-to-movie adaptations.

Alas, some industry experts, like Indiewire, think JT would never go for the part, since he’s all into serious movies that prove his acting chops (like Friends With Benefits?) And maybe that’s a good thing. If he made a movie like this, and we all went to see it, since we are powerless in the face of his charms, it would mean he would keep acting all the time … which in turn means that he’ll continue NOT RECORDING MUSIC. So now, hear us, Hollywood (especially you, Baywatchstudio Paramount, since we’re the same company and all, and should be working together for the greater good). DO NOT sign Justin onto your movie unless there’s a clause in his contract that requires him to record at least 14 new tracks. (None of this “music supervising” for Jessica Biel’s next movie stuff either; we want the real “Sexyback” deal.) /Rant off.
