Will Justin Timberlake succeed in his movie debut?

MOVIE ”Edison”

WHEN Early 2005

PLAYING Josh Pollack, a cub reporter

WHAT’S THE STORY? A rookie scribe (Timberlake, pictured with Morgan Freeman, left, and an unidentified extra) finds himself in deep trouble when he uncovers a citywide police corruption scandal.

WHY HE MIGHT ROCK He’ll be ably supported by world-class actors Freeman and Kevin Spacey. Plus, he spent some rehearsal time learning the ropes with a real reporter on the legal beat.

WHY HE MIGHT HIT A SOUR NOTE It’s a pretty big leap from smooth pop crooner to lead actor in a heavyweight film drama.
