Justin Timberlake to Play Elton John in Biopic?

Justin Timberlake to Play Elton John in Biopic?

A shirtless David Furnish hits the beach with partner Elton John and their adorable 1-year-old son, Zachary, on Friday (January 6) in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The 64-year-old singer recently revealed his biopic is “very much in the works” and that he has his eyes set on one particular singer/actor to play him in the flick.

“No. 1 on my wish list is Justin Timberlake, because he played me before in a David LaChapelle video of ‘Rocket Man’ and was superb,” Elton told the L.A. Times.

Justin is taking it very seriously,” a source told E! Online. “He’s working with his people to figure out exactly how to respond.”

    What a beautiful baby – they all look so happy. So glad Elton and David have this joy in their lives. What a lucky little boy.

    Justin Timberlake will knock it out of the park, performance wise; not sure he has the depth to play EJ in his complexity, but it will be a great challenge for him to take on.

    Are the people in Hollywood living in an alternate realty where Justin Timberlake can act?

    Their little boy is so cute. He’s lucky he has David as Elton looks like he wouldn’t have the energy to play with him at the beach.

    It’s great to see any child getting this much love. Children need love first and foremost. Can you imagine how much these two men must adore him? They’re older and they’ve already lived full lives and had lots of fun and time to think about rearing this boy. He is really a cute baby. I’m very happy for them, esp. Elton, as he has wanted a family for such a long time, even marrying a woman once with the hopes of achieving that dream.
    And Just might do quite fine as Elton. He is relaxed in front of cameras. That’s what helps an actor. He would also get a lot of help from coaches, etc. His ex band mate said Justin is good at about everything he puts his mind to.

    I am just a passing observer, but whatever you may think of Justin Timberlake… he is a survivor! Like the other stars to come out of the Mickey Mouse bunch (Ryan Gosling, Christina Aguilera, Keri Russell, Britney Spears), he can be included with the successful ones, not only in his career but in his intelligence and wisdom to avoid the pitfalls of being a child star. Congrats, Justin. You set an example to not overindulge or to overcome the superficial lifestyle.

    This is disgusting
    The rich, old people are buying the children as puppies
    Children have the right to have both parents
    But there is no law that says that adults need to have children

    These children will grow up better educated, happy, warm, secure, and emotionally balanced. Which is more than one can say about you.

    The people are gay, so poor inocent boy is already dressed in orange pink and will be progarammed to be gay. How pathetic.
    What next- will marriage humans with animals also accepted in 21st century?
