Spike Lee & Pipsqueak
It was announced a few months ago that Justin Timberlake would play Neil Bogart in a biopic of the music producer’s life called Spinning Gold. Now The Hollywood Reporter says that they want Spike Lee to direct. Ummmm…
I don’t need to see any more acting from JT but at the same time, I do want to see JT trying to act in front of Spike Lee. I want Spike Lee to see JT act and be like, um, no, I can’t work with that. Or maybe Spike Lee will be like, I won’t work with that so please re-cast. Maybe though, maybe Spike will approach it like a challenge. Like it’s more about his own talent as a director than Justin’s talent as an actor. Do directors tell themselves that? That a sh-tty actor on their set could become an amazing actor because they believe in their own abilities so much?
The thing about Justin Timberlake however is that he could be the Waterloo of actors. Totally impossible.
