We always knew that Justin Timberlake was awesome at plenty of things besides being a singer. Being an athlete, it turns out, is not one of them. Or that’s what we’re guessing from the news that Justin Timberlake’s stunt injury shut down production of his new movie for 2 weeks. The film Now, a thriller co-starring Olivia Wilde, Amanda Seyfried and Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki, is set in a future distopia where time is traded as a currency—which everyone is going to wish they had more of after Timberlake puts them 2 weeks behind.
Justin was crutching around last week, as he tries to heal from having damaged his calf muscle during filming. “He hasn’t heard anything about the MRI results, but they’re freezing production until he’s off crutches and able to act again,” says a source. Guess you can’t just have Justin sit down for the entire movie with one leg up. Unless his shirt was off, in which case probably no one would even notice.
