Justin Timberlake: Neil Bogart in 'Spinning Gold' Biopic!

Justin Timberlake has signed on for a huge movie role: 1970s record executive and wild man Neil Bogart in the upcoming biopic Spinning Gold.

The 32-year-old entertainer will play the founder of Casablanca who was closely associated with the rise of disco, according to THR.

The film, which is set to begin filming next year, will be shopped at the Cannes Film Market, which will include a private party hosted by Justin.

“For over 30 years, my father’s story has been the source of intense fascination,” Timothy Scott Bogart, son of Neil Bogart and writer of the screenplay, said. “The wait to finally tell the story had always been about partnering with the right person to play him — and the wait ended the first time Justin and I ever met.”

ARE YOU EXCITED to see Justin Timberlake in this iconic role??

    This is going to be a Lifetime movie, right? JT can’t act, and he’s smug. I bet he thinks this is going to get him an Oscar. Loved when he was in *N Sync, he was my fav, but ever since he hinted that he took Britney’s v-card and left Janet out to dry I’ve HATED him. Don’t call yourself a “southern gentleman” when you aren’t. You’re nothing but a douche with an ego the size of John Goodman’s ass.
