Casinos to spin Timberlake, Affleck poker film as cautionary tale
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck have Las Vegas on edge.
They are the stars of a new film about the murky world of unauthorised online poker that could cast an unwelcome spotlight on a fledgling legal market that Sin City's biggest players are betting on.
Timberlake is set to walk the red carpet with other celebrities at Caesars' Planet Hollywood next month in Las Vegas for the premiere of Twenty-First Century Fox Inc's Runner, Runner. The movie opens on Oct 4 in the United States.
In the movie, Affleck plays an online gambling tycoon in Costa Rica confronted by Timberlake, a graduate student who believes he's been swindled by the gaming site.
