Justin Timberlake Wants To Play The Riddler, Must Not Have Heard Ben Affleck Is Batman
Do you guys remember Justin Timberlake? He was in that band ‘NSync that was so popular like ten years ago? He dated Britney Spears and I think there was talk about him going solo after the band broke up, but I can't remember how that turned out. Oh wait, yes I can, because there is literally not a single corner of the media that Justin Timberlake has not infiltrated by this point. He. Is. Everywhere.
Remember when he was the musical host for the Video Music Awards? Or when he released both parts of a two part album in the same year, mere months apart? Or when he took over Jimmy Fallon‘s show for a whole Timberweek? Or when he was married to Jessica Biel? Everywhere you look — television, awards shows, movies, radio, EVERYWHERE — there is Justin. Bringing sexy back or taking back the night, or maybe just walking around or whatever.
And now he wants to be in our nerd talks and Facebook rants, too. Behold Justin giving an interview to the New York radio station Fresh 102.7, when asked whether he'd be interested in playing Robin in the new Batman franchise. He said no to that, but…
“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 wanna play proper crazy.”
See, I'm not into that for a couple reasons. First of all, because Justin is getting so terribly overexposed lately. And second of all, this is yet more proof that Justin doesn't have Google, or at least know how to use it, because he obviously hasn't heard that Ben Affleck is playing Batman. If he had he definitely would've texted me about it because OHMYGODOPINIONSMATTER.
