Timberlake Goes Gay for 'The Cleveland Show'
Singer Justin Timberlake will be lending his voice to a gay character in a cartoon comedy.
The pop singer turned emerging Hollywood actor is busily boosting his acting resume and will lend his voice in an upcoming episode of "Family Guy" spin-off "The Cleveland Show." He will play Paul, the boyfriend of Terry, as well as a "singing booger."
"Terry [voiced by Jason Sudeikis] falls in love with a guy voiced by Justin," show creator Rich Appel told Us Weekly during Comic-Con in San Diego. "Justin is just hysterical!"
The Cleveland Show episode featuring Justin Timberlake will premiere next year in February.
Timberlake is also keeping up with his film career, voicing Boo-Boo Bear in the upcoming animated 'Yogi Bear' feature and playing a major role in 'The Social Network,' a dramatization of the creation of Facebook starring Jesse Eisenberg. He's also attached to play the son of Job in 'The Wrath of Job' -- Roseanne would play his mother. That film also has an 'SNL' connection -- it would feature the welcome return of Don Novello as Father Guido Sarducci.
