Yes, you are reading that right and your eyes are not deceiving you! Justin Timberlake does has friends with benefits but, i'm sorry to say, his relaxed attitude with friendships is onscreen only.

He is back on the big screen and this time he is turning his hand to tear jerking, first date loving genre that is the romantic comedy (romcom). He plays Dylan and stars along side Mina Kunis, Jamie, in the film 'Friends with Benefits'. Their friendship quickly develops when Dylan arrives in New York for a new job knowing nobody and Jamie, instead of leaving him lonely in New York, takes it upon herself to show him around the city. They soon feel very comfortable and start discussing the concept of 'No strings attached fun', which they decide would not interfere with a strong friendship and, this is a romcom after all, this just leads to complications that end up damaging what they share.

Justin attended a special screening of the film at the Arclight in Hollywood and was joined by his cast mates, Nolan Gould and Jenna Elfman and director Will Gluck. Justin Timberlake is not new to being the funny man and we have seen him experiment with different forms of comedy over the years and it has also led to interesting musical projects with hip-hop mockers Lonely Island. Romcoms are a hard genre to get right but, although he may be relatively new to the big screen, I think Mr. Timberlake is going to get the right note and set some hearts a fluttering.
Justin Timberlake was also the choice of Justin Bieber who took to the stage at a Selena Gomez concert on 24th July and belted out the hit single 'Cry Me A River' to the amazed crowds but hopefully not sung to his girlfriend. The Bieb is also known to be the prankster so who knows, maybe we'll see an onscreen collaboration from the two Justins in the near future.
