Timberlake And Affleck Lend Hand To Online Poker In New Movie

Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck are teaming up in their latest movie, Runner, Runner. The film sheds light on the online poker industry, and political warfare has begun over the new controversial movie.

In the film, Timberlake plays a college student who gambles away all of his money to an online poker site. In the process, Timberlake claims he was cheated by the site. In order to gain justice, Timberlake arrives in Costa Rica, the site where the online poker site originates.

Affleck plays the owner of the online poker site, and when confronted by Timberlake, Affleck offers the young college student a job working for the site. The movie comes from Brian Koppleman, who wrote the well-acclaimed hit Rounders back in 1998. Rounders has become somewhat of a cult classic within the poker industry.

The American Gaming Association took the opportunity to use Runner, Runner, to promote their efforts to have federal online gambling laws changed. The AGA has taken out ads with Google on the page where Runner, Runner can be found. The ad touts the deficiencies in the current laws and the possible danger to American poker players.

Affleck is no stranger to the game of poker. He and Timberlake were linked in a story involving a high stakes poker game that was being run out in Las Vegas. Neither actor was indicted in the investigation.

A major movement has been taking place in the US to regulate Internet gambling. Several states, including Nevada and New Jersey have passed online poker regulations. Nevada has already began running online sites, and New Jersey is planning on launching their first online casino on November 26th.
