We won’t know until the sci-fi thriller In Time hits theaters whether or not Justin Timberlake can carry an action flick on his back or whether or not Amanda Seyfried can play the role of sultry femme fatale. No disrespect to either of them, it’s just Timberlake’s acting chops have been proven in the comedy genre and as a supporting player in dramas, while Seyfried has cornered the market on the awkward, best friend role. If the October cover story in W Magazine doesn’t change that perception initially, at the very least, the duo look the part of the leading man and lady thanks to the work of photographer Michael Thompson.
Regarding the movie’s plot, the interview doesn’t help matters. “It’s set in the future, where money buys you time. My character falls in love with Justin’s character—she wants to give him all the time he needs so he can save the world. It’s very romantic. No matter what’s happening in my life, I can always get lost in the romances of my characters,” Seyfried offered by way of a plot description.

In an office like ours, pop culture references come up pretty frequently, and it’s always to surprising to see what a difference even a few years in age can make between someone knowing exactly what you’re talking about, and giving you a blank, slightly pitying stare. The chasm is even greater between kids who were born 18 years ago and those of us who are old enough to have been their babysitters. The latest installment of “The Mindset List,” an annual compilation of the cultural touchstones of incoming freshmen at Wisconsin’s Beloit College, really drives this point home. We’ve pulled out some of the most interesting bits from this year’s findings after the jump.

Welcome to “Trailer Park,” our regular Friday feature where we collect the week’s new trailers all in one place and do a little “judging a book by its cover,” ranking them from worst to best and taking our best guess at what they may be hiding.

1. Last night, Justin Timberlake visited Jimmy Fallon to promote Friends With Benefits, and the pair used it as an excuse to debut the second installment of their incredibly awesome collaboration, “The History of Rap.” Watch them pay homage to House of Pain, 50 Cent, Outkast, and plenty of other hip-hop favorites, here.… Read More
1. It turns out that Justin Timberlake now has a minor stake in MySpace thanks to that $35 million deal that went down yesterday. From his official statement: “Art is inspired by people and vice versa, so there’s a natural social component to entertainment.

Today at Flavorpill, we wished that we could move into one of these incredible looking treehouses for grownups. We found out that The Daily had it wrong when they said that Dave Chappelle was plotting a return to TV. We were surprised to hear that Rob McElhenney, who plays Mac on… Read More
Last night on SNL, Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake reprised their vinyl-clad 90′s bro characters (of ‘Dick in a Box’ and ‘Motherlover’ fame) for a new Digital Short with Lady Gaga entitled “3-Way (The Golden Rule)”. The titular golden rule, of course, being “it’s not gay when it’s in a three way.” Truer words have never been spoken. We’re digging it, but nothing can touch ‘Dick in a Box’ for us – even dual helicoptering. Is this edition of JT and Samberg’s musical partnership the best of the trio or do you think it falls flat? Let us know in the comments!

As we mentioned yesterday, our hopes are high for this weekend’s season finale of Saturday Night Live.

It has been a really rough season for Saturday Night Live, and from where we’re sitting, there has only been one silver lining — the introduction of Bill Hader’s over-the-top club kid character, Stefon. Like our friends over at Crushable, he’s our favorite thing on SNL (particularly when his ridiculous lines cause Hader to break character); that’s why we’re so excited that they’ve created some Stefon-themed Mad Libs in honor of this weekend’s Justin Timberlake-hosted season finale (which, judging by the promos, is actually going to be funny!). Click through fill in the blanks on our favorite one now, and head over to Crushable to collect ‘em all.
