This may come as a surprise to some of you, but I actually think that some singers can become decent actors. Usually I prefer my singers to stay singers, my athletes to stay athletes, my directors to be actual film directors and I definitely (in most cases) prefer to leave the acting to the actors. But as I said, there are a few exceptions. Take former N'Sync member Justin Timberlake for example.

Sure, you could dismiss his acting talent simply because he used to be in N'Sync -- and that might be a valid reason to some. However, if you did that you would miss some of the good work he's done in films such as Alpha Dog and Black Snake Moan. Obviously I'm not the only one who thinks Timberlake might have something going for him in the acting department because, according to Variety, he's just added another feature film role to his growing list of credits -- the Mike Myers comedy The Love Guru over at Paramount Pictures.

The film, which also stars Jessica Alba, was written by Myers and Graham Gordy and centers on an American (one that was raised in India by gurus) who returns to the States to start a self-help empire. Hilarity ensues (as it often does) when he gives advice to the wife of a famous Hockey star (Alba), who takes it a bit too far and starts dating one of her husband's rival players (Timberlake). Could be amusing. Myers is usually funny and Timberlake was pretty good on Saturday Night LIve, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see. The film, under the direction of Marco Schnabel, begins shooting next month in Toronto.
