Justin Timberlake has been making waves with his big return to music, performing with *NSYNC at the MTV Video Music Awards and planning the release of “The 20/20 Experience Pt. 2” later this month.
Still, with the trailer for “Runner Runner,” JT proves he’s still quite committed to his acting career, facing off against Oscar winner (and new Batman) Ben Affleck.
In the film, which is due out for release on October 4, Affleck plays a con man who swindles Richie (Timberlake), a Princeton Grad, Entertainment Weekly reports.
The pair soon get caught up in a sort of illegal “Spy vs. Spy” game, “trapped in the harsh underground world of gambling,” according to “EW.”
The movie also stars Gemma Arterton (“Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters”) and Anthony Mackie, best known for his role as Rebel Wilson’s beau in “Pain & Gain.”
