Justin Timberlake - Justin Timberlake lands booze-filled role

Justin Timberlake is set to play an alcoholic food critic in 'The Last Drop'.

The 'In Time' actor is lining up the leading role in the romantic comedy drama - to be directed by Peter Sollett - following his completion of work in 'Trouble with the Curve' by Clint Eastwood.

The film tells the tale of a young man from New York with alcohol problems who finds a woman he falls in love with.

During their dates, his character realises he must overcome addiction to booze in order to have a successful relationship with her.

The movie has been written by Brandon and Phil Murphy, according to Variety.

Justin has become one of Hollywood's biggest new names in recent years, appearing in 'The Social Network', 'Bad Teacher' - with ex-girlfriend Cameron Diaz - and 'Friends With Benefits'.

He is currently lining up roles in 'Inside Llewyn Davis' and 'Runner, Runner' alongside Ben Affleck and Gemma Arterton.
