Justin Timberlake followed in the footsteps of his Friends with Benefits co-star Mila Kunis and accepted Corporal Kelsey De Santis invitation to the Marine Corps Ball.

“I’ll tell you what: I accept,” JT said at a press junket for his latest film. “I don’t get asked out. Ever. So I was very flattered by that.” He did tack on a caveat, however: “If my schedule works out to do it, I’d love to do it.”

Kunis, meanwhile, reiterated that she will be attending the Marine Corps Ball in Greenville with Sgt. Scott Moore, despite reports in the media suggesting otherwise. “Never did I say that I was not going,” Kunis said. “People believed it, unfortunately.”

Actors Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena found themselves at the scene of a shooting that left an alleged gang member wounded in South Los Angeles.

The incident happened at about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday on the 5700 block of Second Avenue at Van Ness Park during an anti-gang event called Summer Night Lights.

LAPD officials said bullets grazed the victim above his lip and on an arm. He was taken to an area hospital where he was listed in stable condition.

Gyllenhaal and Pena were on a ride along with Los Angeles police officers overnight to do research for a movie the two are working on. The film, “End of Watch,” is about two police officers and their long-term relationship.

Florida’s Illegal Kangaroo Boxing.

The Rocky Show Circus travels all over the state of Florida holdingboxing bouts with adult kangaroos but the group has to do plenty of maneuvering to avoid activists and the law.

Videos of the Rocky Show Circus show kangaroo boxing matches that seem somewhat staged but it’s clear that the human is actually punching the kangaroo in the face. Surprisingly, authorities have not been able to officially rule this as animal abuse and pictures and video are strictly prohibited. Since kangaroo boxing itself is not technically illegal, activists in Florida are trying to get the circus shut down for a slough of other offenses.

A quick search in the Florida business license database reveals that the Rocky Show Circus has no business license and are therefore operating illegally. Getting in the ring to slug it out with a kangaroo might not be considered illegal but not taking the animal to the vet would be. In fact, the Rocky Show Circus was cited by the USDA for not providing veterinary care their kangaroos for two years. In that time, at least two of the kangaroos in their care died from infections related to “lumpy jaw.”

Whether it’s by getting them blacklisted from even more events than they already are or by throwing the owners in jail for abuse and neglect, the Rocky Show Circus will eventually be shut down.

It’s funny, you’d think if you were operating an illegal kangaroo boxing league, the least you could do is take sick or injured animals to the vet.
