Justin Timberlake to Star in "Spinning Gold"
Though he's recently centered his focus on music, Justin Timberlake will combine it with his acting skills in the upcoming movie, "Spinning Gold."
In the Timothy Scott-written biopic, the "Suit & Tie" singer will portray 1970's record icon Neil Bogart, who discovered, launched, and developed the careers of hitmakers like Curtis Mayfield, Bill Withers, Gladys Knight, KISS, Parliament, Donna Summer, and The Village People.
In addition to starring in the film, the 32-year-old pop star will also serve as a producer, and helped develop the script.
Speaking about his subject, who died at the young age of 39, JT says, "Neil Bogart was a fascinating individual whose vision, drive and passion brought us some of the most influential music of our time. I am proud to be part of this project to bring this incredible life story to the screen."
