Published Nov 09, 2009The world was aghast back in September when it was revealed that the new Prince of Pop, Justin Timberlake, had been cast to play Napster co-founder Sean Parker in an upcoming Facebook movie, The Social Network. Apparently, however, Timberlake can do weirder casting choices: he's reportedly been cast to play Boo-Boo in an upcoming live-action/CGI film Yogi Bear.
According to a report from Variety, Timberlake will join Anna Faris and Dan Aykroyd in the remake, which is expected to begin shooting in New Zealand next month.
Either Timberlake needs a new agent, or he loves to throw these WTF choices out there to mess with his fans. Either way, we hope this foray into character acting inspires him to fulfill his potential as the greatest SNL cast member of all time.
