Justin Timberlake Wants to Play ‘The Riddler’


Justin Timberlake has his sights set on a new role, and it’s no riddle.

During a recent interview with Fresh 102.7’s Jim and Kim Show about his Runner Runner co-star, Ben Affleck, being cast in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel. “Ben Affleck as Batman, I like it,” he said. “I worked with Ben last summer and I’ve seen his process. I think he’s a brilliant filmmaker. I think he’s an extreme talent so he could surprise a lot of people.”

But when Justin was asked if he’d  consider playing ‘Robin,’ he answered with a laugh, “Not a chance in hell,” clarifying, “I ain’t playin’ Robin. I have no aspiration to ever be a superhero in a movie. Now VILLAIN! Ill tell you the villain I want to play more than anything because I grew up loving Batman, funny enough, is the Riddler. The Riddler is my favorite villain.”

He continues, “The Riddler was like a sociopath. He was proper crazy. So if I’m gonna play crazy, I’m wanna play proper crazy. I’m ready. The Riddler. Gimme a call.”

fans haven’t seen The Riddler in a Batman movie, since Jim Carrey portrayed the villain in the film, Batman Forever.

Matt Damon on Ben Affleck Playing Batman: “He’s not playing King Lear”



Matt Damon supports Ben Affleck as the new Batman.

Affleck was announced as the new Batman, for the upcoming Superman-Batman flick and some fans are not too happy with the choice. On top of being the butt of jokes, on Twitter with the trending topic #BetterBatmanThanBenAffleck, various Batman fans have stared petitions to get the Argo director removed from the film.

Actor Matt Damon has vocalized his thoughts on his pal’s new role.

During a recent  interview for his new movie Elysium Damon said, “I think it will be great.”

He continued, “It will be terrific. I know there are a lot of people grousing on the internet. I just think it’s kind of funny. You know, he’s not playing King Lear. It’s Batman!”

“It’s certainly within his skill set. If anybody saw ‘Argo’ or ‘The Town,’ and all the work he’s been doing lately, it’s way more nuanced and interesting and way more difficult than Batman! Batman just sits there with his cowl over his head and whispers in a kinda gruff voice at people. Bruce Wayne is the more challenging part of the role, and Ben will be great at that… But it’s safe to say I won’t be Robin.”

Alan Thicke Is Proud Of Son Robin’s Success



Robin Thicke‘s song “Blurred Lines” is currently one of the hottest songs on the radio. In fact, many have named it the summer anthem of 2013.

Now, Thicke’s father, actor Alan Thicke, is speaking out on his son’s success.
“I’ve related to it, and understood it, and was able to feel it, up until only the last couple of weeks,” the elder Thicke tells PEOPLE while attending the 15th Annual DesignCare event benefiting The HollyRod Foundation.

“He has now projected himself into a stratosphere, into another level, having raised the bar, the family brand, to unimaginable heights.”

Alan is best remembered for his role of ‘Jason Seaver’ on Growing Pains, but he is also a  songwriter and composer. And even though Robin seems to be getting all the shine in the music department now, dear-ole- dad is alright with that.

“I occasionally get a good laugh by introducing myself as ‘Robin Thicke’s father,'” he says. “And though I cannot quite relate to the incredible success and accomplishment of his work on that song, now I just feel [like], ‘Okay, now I just have to share you with the rest of the world now … You are barely mine anymore.'”

Alan is even a part of Robin’s new album, as he  co-wrote the track, “Ain’t No Hat 4 That.”

“When I read some of the reviews for that particular song, they even suspected that was the one that I wrote because it was the only one without any cussing in it!” Thicke, who has also authored two parenting books, says with a laugh. “Robin is never shy about dropping the odd scandalous word, and being very sexual in his tunes, and the one that I was involved in had neither the sex, nor any trace of contentious dialogue!”
