Justin Timberlake Talks Gambling, President Obama, & ‘Runner Runner’ on ‘Leno’

Justin Timberlake

Although he was feeling under the weather, Justin Timberlake still pulled through and made an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on Monday.

While he didn’t perform, a drugged-up JT, who was on antibiotics, recalled the time he got food poisoning the night before a big performance, gambling in Las Vegas, reuniting with *NSYNC at the VMAs, and performing for the First Family at the White House.

“He’s the coolest guy I’ve ever met,” he said of President Obama.

Timberlake plays a Princeton math wiz alongside Ben Affleck in Runner Runner, which is based around the world of online gambling.

Before the film hits theaters on Oct. 4, he will release his album The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 on Sept. 30.

    Obama is the coolest guy he’s ever met? Great I’m glad Justin is focused on having a “cool” president. It’s too bad Obama can’t do anything to improve the economy, increase jobs, or really anything to run the country for that matter… He’s sunk us 5-10 trillion further into debt over the last 5 years he’s been in office.

    Coolest guy I ever met? JT f#ck your both your new albums. This guy evidently doesn’t have an active cell in his brain. Well, we kind of already knew that after he purchased mySpace.

    @Stephenc, The reason why Obama “can’t do anything to improve the economy” is because congress won’t pass anything…

    So he has the power to get us into debt but doesn’t have the power to help the economy I hope you see the huge contradiction in that statement.

    Just so you know he doesn’t have the power to do any of those thing, only Congress does, you know constitutional power of the purse and all that. But don’t let facts and historical precedent ever get in the way of your belifs.
