Alex Rodriguez has been romantically linked to the likes of Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz, and now the roidhead Yankees slugger will attempt to move into the movie genre himself.

A-Rod is well-accustomed to the spotlight playing for the world champion Yankees, so it should be an easy transition from Yankee Stadium, to the big screen.

Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis, Woody Harrelson, and Andy Samberg are also set to star in the film, titled “Friends with Benefits,” so it looks like A-Rod will hit the ground running.

It is rumored that he will play himself in the movie, but his actual role has yet to be announced. My guess would be Rodriguez plays the “friend” whose “benefit” is the provision of steroids, for whatever reason. Brilliant plot line, right?
