Justin Timberlake Scores “Trouble With the Curve” Gig

Posted Wednesday February 1, 2012 5:55 PM GMT

While he’s best-known for his amazing music career, Justin Timberlake is quickly becoming one of Hollywood’s hottest commodities.

The “Social Network” star has been tapped to star in the upcoming Clint Eastwood film “Trouble With The Curve,” in which he’ll play Eastwood’s friend Johnny Flanagan, a former baseball player-turned-talent scout.

Additionally, Justin is signed on to star in the new Coen brothers’ project “Inside Llewyn Davis,” set during the 1960 folk movement in New York City. And JT will be singing in the flick.

Timberlake’s costar Oscar Isaac told press, "It's folk from the '60s — old songs passed down for many generations — but new takes on them. Obviously we have the hindsight of now and so we kind of revisit these old songs. They're hopeful and beautiful and in contrast [to] the life of a folk singer, which is not very beautiful at all. It's very drab and dire. It's a screwball comedy."
