He was the young king of the music world before he stepped away to pursue his dream of film. Now, Justin Timberlake may be bringing his two careers together.
Timberlake, a Grammy-winner six times over before beginning his acting career full time, has been offered a spot in the Coen Brothers latest film, Variety reports. The flick, called "Inside Lewyn Davis," is a film about the early 60s folk scene in Greenwich Village, with the lead, a musician based on Village legend Dave Van Ronk, to be played by Oscar Isaac.
Timberlake would play a folk musician named Jim, who, quite interestingly, is married to Carey Mulligan; in this summer's "Drive," Mulligan and Isaac played a married couple.
The film would pair the former pop star with arguably the most prestigious filmmakers of his career. He's had a banner calendar year, starring in hits such as David Fincher's "The Social Network," "Bad Teacher" and "Friends With Benefits." His latest film, "In Time," opened to a soft $12 million at the box office this past weekend.
