A-Rod an Actor Now


Believe it or not, Justin Timberlake may not be the worst actor in the upcoming comedy Friends With Benefits (in which he and Mila Kunis star as a pair of friends who have no-strings sex): New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez will make his big-screen debut in an unspecified role in Benefits, which will accommodate his baseball schedule by "shooting his scenes on the player's off days." Since Rodriguez doesn't have many of those, his part will presumably be small (unless director Will Gluck just intends to use a bunch of first takes). Also joining the cast, though, are Woody Harrelson, Patricia Clarkson, and Richard Jenkins, thereby ensuring that JT's acting will still be relatively hilarious.
