Justin Timberlake and his girlfriend Jessica Biel were hanging out backstage at the Broadway musical “Memphis” last week. He was overheard blabbing to the cast members that he had just come from taping a secret segment for the the season finale of Saturday Night Live. Alec Baldwin is to host the show next week.
This isn’t the first time Timberlake’s gone above and beyond for his favorite show. Who can forget his infamous skit (with cutie Andy Samberg) “Dick in a Box”? Its follow-up “Motherlover” (with Susan Sarandon acting in it, no less) was a parody created in honor of Mother’s Day. How sweet. Then he did Beyonce‘s “Single Ladies” which was hilarious too. He’d better step up this time too. He’s got a rep to live up to.
Interestingly, he was also overheard telling Bon Jovi keyboardist and “Memphis” music writer, David Bryan, that he’s interested in turning the musical into a movie. That’s called serious state pride – JT was born in Tennessee.
