Justin Timberlake wanted by Quentin Tarantino
HollywoodNews.com: Already generating heat from his portrayal of loose cannon Napster mogul Sean Parker in “The Social Network,” former *N Sync renaissance man Justin Timberlake is looking to be loaded up as a hitman in Quentin Tarantino’s next film.
Tarantino is penning a film about a trainee assassin and wants Timberlake as his gunman.
The Sun learns from a source that the project is “kind of a dark comedy, very much in the Tarantino style.
“Justin is a new raw talent when it comes to acting but Quentin feels he could be ideal for the lead role. He’s excited about taking a teen heartthrob and turning him into a cold-blooded killer.”
Timberlake has already demonstrated his flawless knack with comedy, having appeared on “Saturday Night Live” in a variety of skits as well as hamming it up in the Mike Myers comedy “The Love Guru.”
