A homeless man who appeared in a video shown at Justin Timberlake's wedding says he was tricked into appearing. The man - known as Eddie - told TMZ.com that he was paid $40 to film the segment though had no idea he was going to be the punch-line of a sick joke.

Eddie was minding his own business in Hollywood when he was approached by a man who offered him cash for reading a few pre-written lines into the camera. He claims the cameraman told him the video was being made for a friend's wedding, though Eddie had no idea it would be shipped over to Italy for Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel's wedding. When told, Eddie said, "That makes me feel really bad ... that was a trick played on me." In a video on TMZ.com, the homeless man appears to be dressed pretty suavely, though the website say he was out looking for a job, "I'm gonna do my best to change my life," he added.

The creator of the video, Timberlake's friend Justin Huchel is threatening to sue website Gawker, who posted a 20-second clip online, prompting outrage from users. Here's a thought: maybe he shouldn't have made such a stupid video in the first place.
