According to the American magazine Variety Gemma Arterton has snagged a role in the upcoming poker-world movie Runner, Runner. The project supposedly also features talents of Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck, and Brad Fuhrman (The Lincoln Lawyer, The Take) will be directing the movie.
Timberlake plays the part of a student at the prestigious university of Princeton, who loses his tuition in a rogue online poker game. Affleck plays the website founder, and Timberlake would eventually become his right-hand-man. Arterton is cast as Timberlake’s girlfriend.
Filming supposedly starts in June.

Despite probably not being the most innovative of roles, I’m quite excited!!!!
:( Get tea and honey and a blanket and watch movies? At least you’re not sick in Vienna, so let your mom take care of you, that’s what moms are there for after all, right?
It’s too hot for a blanket :( But I’ve been drinking tea pretty much non-stop (not that it helps).. and mom is here, so that’s awesome and good. Being sick alone really fails and now I can hug my mom, at least, which is good.. but there were things I wanted to do and there are people who came over (some of them unexpectedly.. fun!!! considering the state I am in) and I have a thing I need to go to tomorrow.. did I also mention I have a test on Friday I can’t study for now? :( The last thing I need is failing my subjects abroad.
On the upside, my mom just gave me Neil Gaiman’s “American Gods” as a cheer up present. I won’t be able to read it now or take it with me to Vienna, but it’s nice to know it’s waiting for me when I get back..
Why am I sick again? I was sick last week, pretty darn sick, and now again? Damn dude sitting next to me on the plane. You gave me your cold and a pretty darned extreme one at that. I’m supposed to be enjoying this time at home, not sway while walking and sneeze every 5 minutes. :(
But my best uni friend came to visit me today and it was cool and I introduced her to Thor so that’s a day well spent. But ugh ugh ugh I feel so bad.
Back to watching interesting reality tv (pawn shops and the like ftw) with my parents. It’s so good to see them, even if I am sick.
