Looks like somebody is trying to get back ‘n sync.
And, of course, we’re talking about dubious romance dude Justin Timberlake, who has been all over the tabloids for his alleged sexting, flourishing movie career, and oh yeah, that slightly awkward relaysh with Jessica Biel.
But while Justin may have “cried us a river” just a few weeks ago, it seems the actor has no plans to bring the sexy back anytime soon. His sci-fi flick In Time hits theaters in November, and he’s just been cast in a new biopic as ’70s record producer and Casablanca Records cofounder Neil Bogart.
So what gives? And if Justin is serious about returning to his musical roots, why did he choose the role as N.B.?
Because, apparently, Justin was perfect for the part. Or so Tim Bogart, Neil’s son and the film’s writer, gushes to MTV:
“When Justin walked into the room, that was the moment I had been waiting for 29 years. He has the exact same energy as my father, the same glimmer in his eye.”
