Olivia Wilde to Play Justin Timberlake's Mom!

Olivia Wilde to Play Justin Timberlake's Mom!

It’s a mini Alpha Dog reunion!

Justin Timberlake, Olivia Wilde, and Amanda Seyfried, who all starred in the 2006 crime drama, are teaming up again for a yet-to-be titled thriller.

Justin will be playing a rebel falsely accused of murder who goes on the run with a hostage (Seyfried), reports The Wrap.

Even though Olivia, 26, is three years younger than Justin, she’ll be playing his mother!

The synopsis: the characters live in a society where aging stops at 25 and time has become the form of currency. The rich are immortal, but the rest struggle to stay alive.

Cillian Murphy (Inception, Batman Begins) and Mad Men‘s Vincent Kartheiser, who was also in Alpha Dog, have been cast in the movie as well.

    I wish he’d make some music already and quit it with this “i’m an actor” business.

    For some reason I can’t stand that woman, however, the rest of the cast sound amazing. Huge fan of Kartheiser so I’m psyched he’s doing a new movie that more people (other than me) will be watching.

    Sounds alot like the old movie Logan’s Run same concept everyone stops ageing at 30 and must die or run away
    So it sounds like instead of doing a remake of Logan’s Run they are just ripping it off just a bit.

    No offense to Justin but I am so tired of hearing about him and his attempted acting career he isnt an actor and really should go back to music, He is gifted with music I must admit even if most of his stuff is main stream popish stuff its still better than most for that genre.That being said……..

    Parts like this should go to real actors that will put the time and dedication to a role that he cant, since this is like a hobbie to him probably, like a side job another way to be more famous but not a real career. Actors should act, singers should sing… and not take the roles from real actors that have worked hard for it, rather then have roles handed to them because they have a famous name.

    Timberlake has yet to drag a real large audience in for a movie he was cast in just because he was in it.
    He actually isnt a box office plus opening weekend atleast not yet.
    His fans dont seem to flock and make the films blockbusters.
    But there are plenty of real actors that do have that effect and can help a film. He just doesnt have that yet.

    I guess this is the part Charlie Hunnam lost out to Timberlake. Charlie would have been better.

    Timberlake was horrible in The Social Network. His performance seemed forced and theatrical. I know he loves himself, but I certainly didn’t love his performance.

    How about this: A singer who can’t act but will trade on his name recognition as currency for studios to cast him in movies.

    Internet Surfer Says:

    He may not be a great actor but he definitely has entertaining music. Not only is his music great but that Jimmy Fallon skit idea he did the other night was great and shows some of his unique talents.

    Olivia Wilde is gorgeous but I’ve only ever seen her on House. She’s good in that. Timberlake – well, I’ve never seen him in anything so I can’t judge his acting, but I’m interested in it if it has Cillian Murphy. That guy can act!

    I wish Olivia Wilde would go back to being a blonde (her natural hair colour). She was far better looking back in 2004 and 2005. Then she needs to drop that horse’s ass husband of hers. In addition, I don’t understand why she doesn’t play the protagonist’s love interest in any of her movies.

    It’s called “I M MORTAL” jared. Yet to be tittled? Just admit you dont know anything about Hollywood Jared. This was announced in the h-wood reporter months ago.

    @James Kragen:

    I don’t know if it’s the dark hair, but she looks so much older than 26. She was probably chosen because she does look older than Justin.

    Insulting Says:

    I am tired of YOUNG, beautiful women being aged up for movies. And if you think about the premise of the movie, her being a mom wouldn’t work. In fact most people would lose their parents at about 14 or so because the female/mother would “age out” at 25.
    @MissAnthropica: Yes, it does sound a lot like a repackaged Logan’s Run for 2010.

    @SheDevil: @SheDevil: Wow SheDevil. Perhaps you should check your research before you go attacking someone who obviously knows more about Hollywood then you ever will. It is no longer called Im.Mortal. It is currently listed as the Untitled Jusin Timberlake/Amanda Seyfried project. They haven’t decided what to re-name it yet. Look it up on imdb. So Jared is actually correct!!!!

    I’m curious to see how they’ll pull that off considering they look the same age.
