We're definitely not searching for it, but if we can find something that's exciting for us both, then yeah. I mean, we want to be careful about playing a couple in a movie, I'm not sure about that, but playing enemies could be cool.''

Justin Timberlake Alpha Dog Madonna MTV The Bourne Identity

Justin Timberlake is to add to his growing portfolio by producing a television show for MTV.

The 27-year-old will work on a new reality game show called The Phone, which will see each show beginning with two hidden mobile phones ringing at opposite ends of a city.

People who answer the phone will be given five seconds to decide if they want to play for a chance of a cash prize.

They are then given a mission to complete for the prize.

MTV said The Phone would be reminiscent of films such as The Bourne Identity and The Game.

"Genre-busting and reinvention is at the core of what we do, and The Phone does just that," said Tony Disanto, MTV executive vice president of programming and series development.

"Each week will be an action-packed mini-movie."

As well as his successful time in boyband N*Sync, Timberlake has gone on to have a hugely impressive solo career as well as acting roles in films including Alpha Dog, Southland Tales and Shrek the Third.

He currently holds the number one spot in the UK singles chart with Madonna for their song 4 Minutes.

Teenage Actor Uncomfortable With Pool Sex Scene


Anton Yelchin Alpha Dog House of D

Teenage actor Anton Yelchin fears film fans will get the wrong idea about him when they see him cavorting with two nearly-naked actresses in new film Alpha Dog.
The 16-year-old House of D star was initially thrilled about the idea of filming a swimming pool love scene with two gorgeous actresses until it dawned on him that filmgoers would think he really was a seedy character.
He says, "I couldn't imagine enjoying it or taking pleasure in this scene. I'd feel a little sick and uncomfortable with myself if I did... I'd feel gross.
"I'd feel uncomfortable for the girls in the scene with me. They'd think I'm this guy who gets off on these scenes."

Sharon Stone Alpha Dog Nick Cassavetes

Movie star Sharon Stone had to wear an extra-large fat suit to play a grieving mum in new movie Alpha Dog because she looked stunning in everything the director tried to put her in.
Moviemaker Nick Cassavetes was desperate to capture the reallife weight problems SUSAN MARKOWITZ suffered as she attempted to cope with the death of her son at the hands of JESSE JAMES HOLLYWOOD, but Stone couldn't look rough if she tried.
He explains, "The woman gained a bunch of weight... She had an extremely tough time with the events that happened, a really difficult time.
"I remember when I was testing fat suits on Sharon, you put 40 pounds on her (and) she still looks like a glamourpuss. We had to really go and put it on her. She liked it.
"She feels a certain comfort with all that stuff on her."
