March 1, 2008 at 12:22 PM

HOLLYWOOD, March 1 (UPI) -- Pop singer Justin Timberlake apparently will show off his comedic abilities in the new Hollywood movie "The Love Guru," it was reported.

In the new trailer for the upcoming comedy, Timberlake can be seen wearing nothing but a Speedo bathing suit and speaking in an exaggerated French accent, People magazine reported Friday.

The Grammy Award-winning singer plays Los Angeles Kings hockey star Jacques Grande, who is part of a love triangle the movie's star, Michael Myers, must untangle.

The comedy also stars Jessica Alba, along with Verne Troyer, Romany Malco and Ben Kingsley.

People magazine said Timberlake's previous film credits include roles in more dramatic fare such as "Alpha Dog," "Southland Tales" and "Black Snake Moan."
