JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE JOINS CAST OF MIKE MYERS FILM

Justin Timberlake joins cast of latest Mike Myers comedy

Justin Timberlake is returning to the silver screen joining the cast of the latest Mike Myers movie The Love Guru.

Inspired by excellent reviews in his first film Alpha Dog, Timberlake will play a hockey player with the LA Kings in the comedy, which is scheduled to begin production in September in Toronto.

The film sees Myers play Pitka, an American child who is left at the gates of an ashram in India and raised by gurus.

He returns to America as an adult, where he specialises in self-help and spirituality for couples in crisis.

The plot thickens when a professional hockey player and his estranged wife come for counselling, only for the wife to seek revenge by dating a player from a rival team.

Other members of the cast include Jessica Alba, Verne ‘Mini Me’ Troyer and Romany Malco, who starred alongside Will Ferrell in Blades Of Glory.

The Love Guru is Mike Myers first original character portrayal since he played Austin Powers, and is due for release in June 2008.
