A homeless man who was featured on a "joke" wedding video for Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel has revealed he feels exploited. The couple tied the knot in Italy earlier this month and Justin's close friend, Justin Huchel, put together the tape that starts by saying "Greetings from your Hollywood friends who just couldn't make it" and cuts to several homeless people, transsexuals and street musicians wishing them well with apologies for missing the big day. One of the participants, known only as Eddie, claims he was given $40 and was asked to recite the following scripted lines: "Jessica and Justin, I haven't seen ya'll in a long time. My gift is in the mail." Eddie told gossip website TMZ he had no idea who the couple was and added: "That makes me feel really bad. That was a trick played on me." A letter from Mr. Huchel's attorney, Michael Saltz, demanded that a clip from the video be taken down from the website Gawker and stated it was done without the bride or groom's knowledge. He wrote: "Specifically, Mr.Huchel made a video to be used and exhibited privately at Justin Timberlake's wedding as a private joke without Mr. Timberlake's knowledge."
