Justin Timberlake, who plays cheated online gambler Richie Furst in upcoming crime thriller 'Runner Runner', talks about his character and the angle of the story in a short featurette for the film which is due out on September 27th 2013.
'He loses all his money and finds out that there's an algorithm that cheats you', Justin explains. 'It's a fast paced world, [Ivan] Block sees someone he finally relates to. As the movie progresses, it becomes this sort of mentor-apprentice role. The deeper he gets into the story, the darker and darker it gets.' He also supplied his own thoughts on the human nature behind the story. 'It's the new American Dream', he says. 'The more access we have to things the faster we want them.'
