MELBOURNE - After ruling the pop charts and winning numerous Grammys - it seems Justin Timberlake now wants Hollywood stardom.
“People seem to find if you do one thing really well there is no way you can do something else,” the Herald Sun quoted Timberlake as saying.
“You get a lot of doubt.”
Any questions about his acting potential, however, have been silenced by the movie - ‘The Social Network’.
A film about the birth of Facebook, where Timberlake played Napster creator and Silicon Valley hedonist Sean Parker.
And Parker himself declared of Timberlake: “It’s a great performance of a character that isn’t me”.
The moment he read the script, Timberlake didn’t just want, but needed the part.
“It’s not every day you read something so complete and so dazzling,” he says. “I was blown away. It was almost dizzying. I asked to be able to please get into the audition room,” according to Timberlake.
Though, writer Aaron Sorkin and director David Fincher did their best to dismiss Timberlake as just another pop idol desperate to act. (ANI)
