It looks like Justin Timberlake wants to continue expanding his thespian talents. The pop star is portraying a baseball player for the Corpus Christi Hooks in The Open Road and has been trying to research the role by meeting with actual ball players. "Justin wants to portray what it's like playing for the Hooks, playing for an Astros minor league team and playing at Whataburger Field," says Hooks President J.J. Gottsch. However, with spring training getting underway, JT hasn't been able to meet with any actual ball players. This will be his fifth onscreen role. He also voiced a character in Shrek the Third.
