Biography

Grammy-winning recording artist and actor Justin Timberlake more or less grew up in the spotlight. Making his screen debut before he was even old enough to shave, Timberlake was a cast member of the early 1990s revamp of "The Mickey Mouse Club" (The Disney Channel, 1989-1994). From there, he gained international fame as Britney Spears' boyfriend and the front man for the phenomenally popular boy band N'Sync with hit songs like "It's Gonna Be Me" and "Girlfriend," before striking out on his own in the early 2000s. Timberlake quickly established credibility as a solo artist, eclipsing his 'NSync colleagues with the multi-platinum albums Justified (2002) and Future Sex/Love Sounds (2006). After securing his position as one of the modern music's most reliable artists, Timberlake sought to tackle Hollywood with roles in indie features like "Alpha Dog" (2006) and "Black Snake Moan" (2006), before stepping up to voice roles in "Shrek the Third" (2007) and "Shrek Forever After" (2010). He earned laughs for a stint of hosting duties on "Saturday Night Live' (NBC, 1975- ), which included a hilarious digital video song with Andy Samberg called "D--k in a Box," which went on to become one of the most viewed on YouTube. Meanwhile, Timberlake received critical praise for his part in the Oscar-baiting drama, "The Social Network" (2010), before turning in a charming lead performance in the romantic comedy "Friends With Benefits" (2011), all proving that he had far more depth and range than most had anticipated from the former head of a '90s boy band.

Bonus Trivia

.

"You hope somebody sees it that may think about you for a TV series or a feature film. I'm just excited to do anything. Pimp me!" – Timberlake on hit TV-movie acting debut on "Model Behavior", quoted in Entertainment Weekly, March 10, 2000

.

"Justin's really focused. He clearly has spent a lot of time with the script and rehearsed it. That's probably why he's so successful in the music world, because he takes his job really seriously." – executive producer Mike Karz, praising Timberlake's work ethic in TV Guide, March 11, 2000

.

"We don't want it to be '*NSYNC World' like the Spice Girls. We don't want to play ourselves. That's just cheesy." – Timberlake on the pending *NSYNC film project to People, March 13, 2000

.

"The thing is, we kind of halfway produce and direct every time we do something. Usually it's our concepts that are used for the videos. That's like everything else that that we do. We direct our music. We help direct our videos. We're heavily involved in everything we do, so maybe one day we'll just get enough money where we can just blow it all and direct our own video." – Timberlake on who steers the band creatively to MTVNEWS.com, June 1, 2000

.

"It's a liberating thing to walk out onstage and see people your age and up, and they're not screaming just because you're standing there, they're screaming because you did something to impress them. They don't put your poster on their wall, they just like your record." – Timberlake to Rolling Stone, December 2003

.

"I mean, I was completely shocked and appalled, and all I could say was, 'oh my God, oh my God,'" – Timberlake on the Superbowl halftime scandal, which exposed Janet Jackson's breast, EW, Feb. 5, 2004

.

"I think some of the same people who say I wouldn't get as much attention if I was a black artist are probably the same people who said I copy everything Michael Jackson did. Do you think it's a safe assumption to say there's a lot of artists that in some shape or form steal from Michael?" – Timberlake quoted to GQ, September 2004

.

"I was never pushed by my parents. It was always like, 'I want to do this.' I didn't know where it was gonna go. Still don't. I just loved it." – Timberlake on pursing his career, to GQ, August 2006

.

"I didn't want to be 'that guy from the Boy Band.' I didn't want to be that guy who was just, like, famous for being famous. I didn't want to be the guy who dates girls in the tabloids. That's why the [first] album was such a big deal for me. I had to fight harder for my respect, for my credibility." – Timberlake on his career, to GQ, August 2006

.

"I tried so hard to be an R&B artist and it was the pop album of the year. That's the last thing I wanted. But I was like, `So everyone considers me a pop artist? I'm going to do whatever I want to do.'" – Timberlake on his debut solo album Justified, to Details magazine, April 2007

.

Timberlake invested an undisclosed amount in the new music-focused MySpace that was sold to Specific Media, a digital media company, on June 29, 2011 for $35 million.
