Justin's Acting Debut: Straight to Video

As TMZ told you last month, Justin Timberlake's first major big screen role was in the straight-to-video release "Edison Force." Despite starring Oscar winners Morgan Freeman and Kevin Spacey, the film was a "parade of cliches" according to Variety and "a star-studded dud of a B-picture" according to the Hollywood Reporter.

But TMZ couldn't just take their word for it -- we had to rent it for ourselves. Check out this clip from the bonus features on the disc -- in it Justin explains how he prepared for the role. Theoretically it didn't really matter what he did, since only like 12 people will actually see the film.

Justin is at it again in the movie "Alpha Dog," which opens January 2007 and his second solo album, "FutureSex/LoveSounds," hits stores September 12.
