Justin's Alpha Dog May be in Some Trouble

Justin's Alpha Dog May be in Some Trouble

Justin may be single now, but he sure didn't look sad walking down the red carpet solo to show off his latest project. Last night JT attended the premiere of his new movie Alpha Dog in LA. It's a film about the kidnap and murder of a Southern California teenager that actually did happen, and now the real life drama may cause the film's January 12th release to be delayed. Here's more:

Despite having the characters' names changed, Hollywood is shown in a bad light throughout the film, attorney James Blatt said, and a jury pool could be tainted, infringing on Hollywood's right to a fair trial.

Universal Studios argued that prohibiting the public from seeing the movie would violate the First Amendment.

Last month, a federal judge refused to stop the film's release but Hollywood appealed the decision. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is expected to rule in the coming days.

"Alpha Dog" is based on the kidnapping and slaying of 15-year-old Nicholas Markowitz seven years ago. Prosecutors believe Hollywood, portrayed in the movie by Emile Hirsch, was the mastermind behind the murder plot. The teen's body was later found in a remote Santa Barbara County camping area.

Markowitz was killed as part of a feud Hollywood had with the victim's older half brother over a $1,200 drug debt, prosecutors said. Four others have been convicted in connection with the murder.

Let's hope nothing comes of this. We're really looking forward to checking out JT's new flick soon. We're betting it will be a good one based on the fabulous acting skills he showed off a few weeks ago on SNL. For now, more pics including Hank Azaria, Sharon Stone, Amanda Seyfried, Shawn Hatosy, Ben Foster and Emilie Hirsch so just

How disappointing. The big white sneakers with a grey suit look is really not doing it for me. Very Pee-Wee Hermanesque

I've heard this is a good movie and Justin is pretty good in it. But Pop! I could have handled more pictures of Emile and less of Justin! Hirsch has the most gorgeous eyes. :) I'm confident he'll be excellent as Hollywood. ------------------------------------------------------ Imagination is more important than knowledge.

Hope this is helpful: "Jesse James Hollywood is very real — and as the inspiration for writer/director Nick Cassavetes' long-time-coming movie "Alpha Dog," the 26-year-old has gotten a Hollywood ending, just not one made of stardust and dreams. "Alpha Dog" is trial by Tinseltown, and Hollywood (the person) has been trying to fight Hollywood (the system) to keep it from hitting theaters."

Um, I'm confused- is this 'Hollywood' they're referring to, a person? :?

I heard the film was supposed to be decent, but it's hard to take JT and the dumb blond from Mean Girls seriously lol.

Now i am not a fan of JT (in the looks dept.) I dont know but something about him running around in those 'wife beaters' and those tats sure make him look oh so hot!

I am hesitant about this film. I am a big fan of Ben Foster, who is supposed to be quite gripping in this, but the previews I have seen are making me leery. Justin does NOT look convincing in the previews. I dunno, I will be seeing this and will try to reserve judgement on JT until then, but I am not optimistic. The comedy sketches he did on SNL are a far cry from this type of dramatic acting.

Im not sure if I want to see this movie in the theatre although it may be good. Im more of a DVD girl. Plus Justin in that weird looking movie that Christina Ricci is in . Hes just all over the place lately.

Im sure we probally wont get any confirmation on the break up because it took what like a year for them to admit they were together and they never even really came out an made a confirmation statement on that either. So who knows, heres to hoping though.
