And so our hopes for another Justin Timblerlake album fade further and further into the distance. Deadline reports that Justin Timberlake will star in Spinning Gold, a biopic of record executive Neil Bogart, the man who launched the careers of KISS, Donna Summer, The Village People and many other ’70s superstars. Well, at least the film is about music. Maybe Justin’s next biopic can be about a boy-band-member-turned-R-&-B-heartthrob-turned-actor. But then he’d probably go on to star in a Justin Timberlake biopic, and then we’ll have a real Truman Show situation on our hands.
Says Neil’s son Tim Bogart of the casting choice, “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.Ã¢â‚¬Â So if Justin wins an Oscar for this film, he’ll only need the Tony for an EGOT… Get onto Broadway now, Kate Winslet! You don’t have much time before you two are neck and neck!
