Justin Timberlake has entered early talks to tackle the role originally offered Seth Rogen in Alcon’s upcoming LATE BLOOMER. The project, which is based on the true story of Ken Baker, a man who missed puberty growing up, and undergoes hormone therapy to get back on track – with the unfortunate effects of experiencing every stage of puberty in just 3 weeks, is also set to be powerhouse TV-director Randall Einhorn’s feature debut. Baker, who’s written the memoir “Man Made: A Memoir of My Body,” wanted to tell his awkward and embarrassing tale, with a comedic twist, thus the original offer to Rogen. And while Rogen never officially passed on the role, his schedule became too busy to tackle the film, and now Alcon has extended the offer to Timberlake, for a different perspective on the project.
Timberlake is repped by WME and The Yorn Company.
