Justin Timberlake: Serious Broadway Actor?!?!?

justin timberlake may be headed to broadway

It was one thing getting used to JT as an actor instead of a musician…but now this???

John Grisham's A Time To Kill was recently adapted from the novel into a stage play by Rupert Holmes, and now it's scheduled for a reading in NYC this Friday.

According to a source, if things go well with the reading and producers move forward with a Broadway production, they are likely to approach Justin Timberlake for the key role of young legal protege Wilbanks.

For those of you unfamiliar with the story, it revolves around "a disbarred civil-rights lawyer who gets involved in a racially incendiary murder case."

We're not 100% sure how we feel about JT on Broadway, but we suppose we'd be curious to see his live acting skillz.

Although, if he IS gonna do Broadway, he should really star in a musical! THEN we could see both his live acting AND music talents! Two for the price of one!

What do U think? Would U like to see Justin Timberlake in A Time To Kill on Broadway?

    No offense to JT, but all these kids who spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to make it as an actor, and the studio has to go with musicians? (Whom do you serve…..)

    What the hell is the appeal of this douchebag? He isnt good looking, his singing and acting are mediocre at best he couldnt be a bigger narrcisit. Please someone explain!!

    Re: Babycakes!!! – Agree! I don't understand the fascination with him or even if there is a fascination with him, there has never been a craze around him like other celebs, yet the media keep sticking him in our face.

    JT looks like Screech from Saved By The Bell in that picture…dude better hit the gym.

    It makes sense that he will try to make it as a "character actor" because he simply hasn't got the looks for the handsome leading man roles as he ages.

    Don't think timberlake has any interest in doing broadway. He likes to go to broadway shows but hasn't shown any interest contrary to what some people are saying in actually starring in one. He did show interest in the broadway show Memphis and in helping to bring it to the big screen but not in being in the broadway show of it.

    Justin Timberlake reminds me of a young Fred Astaire…He's not "ugly"…just "different"…I think he's talented but needs to change his image.
