Justin Timberlake Cast Opposite Cameron Diaz

Jessica Biel isn't going to like this! Justin Timberlake has just landed another acting gig! According to The Hollywood Reporter, JT will play the lead in Bad Teacher opposite his ex-girlfriend Cameron Diaz!

The movie is about a foul-mouthed, gold-digging seventh-grade teacher who, after being dumped by her boyfriend, sets her sights on a colleague (Lucy Punch) who is dating a substitute teacher, who also is the scion of a watch fortune.

Molly Shannon, Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet, and Jason Segal have also joined the cast. And landing this role was no easy feat for Justin--he reportedly beat out John Krasinski, Joel McHale, Timothy Olyphant, Guy Pearce, Adam Scott and relative newcomer Cheyenne Jackson for the role.

Seems like Justin is pretty focused on the acting gig right now! But we sort of miss his musical side!
