Here is a hilarious video of Patricia Clarkson talking about doing “Mother Lover” with Justin & Andy Samberg. She is currently also working with them on “Friends with Benefits”.
Thanks Dean for the upload
I wonder when are we gonna see Justin gracing us again with his comedic skills on SNL
I came across this great picture of Justin playing guitar at misterjustintimberlake’s site. I’ve never seen this one before but I know it is more or less from early 2008, when he was in London doing the 4 minutes video with Madonna
It also looks like it could be part of the photoshoot I posted some days ago, in which he was in the studio recording with Matt Morris. I honestly don’t know, sorry!!
Vibe.com did an interview with Freesol in which the band discussed their unique sound, their plans of releasing a new album on early 2011 and the incredible talents of Mister Justin Timberlake.
Check out the bits about Justin below:
How have your lives changed since signing a deal?
Free: We’ve had ups and downs. I think a lot of people think when you get a record deal that’s when it all begins and you’re about to take off but actually we really had to work. We really had to tune in and learn who we are, what we are, what is our product, what we’re trying to be. What we used to do is just get out there and play music. We would just jam and do whatever. One minute we were playing First House, next minute we were opening up for Saliva, or next minute we were playing some Foo Fighters or Wailers. We played all types of stuff and when we signed with Justin we just had to realize what we were trying to do.
Talk about your debut album.
Free: We’re trying to shoot a video in the next 30 to 60 days and lock down the single. We’re trying to put a single out this fall and trying to have the record out early 2011 but we haven’t decided the name of the record.
Being a band probably means that at times it’s hard to translate the sounds that you want in a recording as opposed to being live. Is that a concern for you guys? How do you deal with it?
Preemo: Like free said before, when we first started playing and recording and doing our shows, we could do anything from a heavy metal concert to a smooth jazz club because all of us we’re musicians and we could do what we want. The challenge was narrowing it down because we were all over the place and I think with the help of Justin, of course, we’ve pretty much done that to the point where we’ve almost created a new genre of music and it’s really cool. It’s a mixture of hip-hop meets rock with a little bit of soul and I think that people will be able to relate to it and dig it and jam out and vibe to it bump in the club to it or chill with your girl to it.
What’s an example of some helpful guidance you picked up from Justin?
Free: Justin is so intimidating. I like to tell the story that the first time I was in the studio with him working, I was writing a rhyme and he wanted to see how I was coming along with it so he looked over my shoulder and said, “Read it to me.” I was pretty much finished with it but I was just practicing it before I went and laid it. He hears me spitting it and while I was in the middle of recording it he’s like when you say blah blah blah, he actually sat and and remembered the whole rhyme after hearing it one time. He remembered certain places and things and that just blew my mind at that moment. I really realized how talented he is, not only is he able with his memory, he’s very intelligent. So being around him has made me become more focused and attentive to everything. I think the main thing as an mc that he does is he’s very rhythmic. Everything is about dance so like rhythmic patterns and stuff flowing⎯I think that that’s something that he’s really trying to encourage me to think about. I’ve always been about trying to change the flow up and ride the beat but I think he brought more of that out of me.
Preemo: JT has helped mold me into a better producer as far as teaching me how to really pay attention to sound, different textures, different colors, textures of drums⎯really pay attention to drums. He really believes if the drums knock then everything else is kinda secondary. It really motivated me to be a better producer today⎯individually as well as incorporate it into the band and make us a stronger unit all together.

The 29-year old has been a star since he was 12-year-old entertainer on The New Mickey Mouse Club.
Then he was the main attraction in Nineties boyband *NSYNC as they sold 56million records.
He’s since been a solo star and actor, won six Grammys and collected two Emmys. Along the way, he’s dated Cameron Diaz and Jessica Biel.
But asked if he is more insecure about acting than he is making music, Justin told The Razz: “I think I’m equally insecure about both of them.
“I’ve been doing this for two thirds of my life and I still consider myself pretty young but I think that’s the part you battle with all the time.
“When you’re making it, that’s the best part. The process is the best part.
“Your senses are on a creative high and then the part where everyone else gets to see it and comment on it, that’s the part that I think you battle with until you die.
“It’s absolutely terrifying.”
Justin has only released two solo albums, 2006′s FutureSex/LoveSounds following his 2002 debut Justified.
But he’s collaborated on many singles, including with Timbaland and Nelly Furtado on Give It To Me, 50 Cent on Ayo Technology and with Madonna on 4 Minutes.
Instead of albums, he’s been making movies. Gritty ones like Alpha Dog, Southland Tales and Black Snake Moan or sending himself up as teen royal Artie in Shrek The Third and Jacques “Le Coq” Grande in The Love Guru.
In October, he’ll be seen in The Social Network, a biopic about the founders of Facebook. He plays Sean Parker, the creator of free music service Napster who became Facebook’s president.
And he will voice Boo-Boo Bear in a film version of Yogi Bear that mixes live-action with animation. Dan Aykroyd voices Yogi and Justin does a fantastic take on Boo-Boo’s nasal voice.
Justin is chuffed to be playing such a telly icon. He grinned: “It’s pretty awesome. I used to watch the cartoon when I was a kid.
“You’re talking about a classic, you’re talking about two classic characters that have been around since my parents. Yogi Bear is an iconic Hanna Barbera cartoon. So it’s been a lot of fun.
“I will say this, Dan does an amazing Yogi Bear and hopefully I did Boo-Boo justice. But we’re really – for lack of a better term – mimicking what you recognise as those voices from the cartoon.”
The man from Memphis, Tennessee, is refusing to be pigeonholed as just a singer, claiming he’s cared for acting as well as music.
He said: “It’s no secret I was trained as a very young kid on a TV show with a lot of other extremely talented actors and singers. Christina Aguilera. Ryan Gosling.
“I think we were all trained in the arts, be it song, dance or acting.
“I’m extremely aware of perception and I think that’s why I’ve made the choices that I’ve made. They were for myself.”
And how does he take being one of the sex symbols of a generation? Justin shook his head. He said: “I’m not going to answer that question. There’s no right way.
“Everybody has a little geek in them and I just don’t believe in things that way.
“I love the process of making films and I love the process of making music.”

TheFilmStage.com – Sony is playing it smart. During the season two premiere of Jersey Shore tonight, they aired the very first TV spot for David Fincher‘s Facebook movie The Social Network. They ripped out the beautiful cover of Radiohead’s Creep and jammed in the new single Power, by the recent social media-friendly Kanye West. Check out the spot below:
