Singer set to play the part of Napster's co-founder
Timberlake will appear in ‘The Social Network’, which is written by Aaron Sorkin (who wrote ‘The West Wing’) and executively produced by Kevin Spacey.
Timberlake‘s character Parker went on to become Facebook‘s founding president.
Joining the singer in the film will be ‘The Squid And The Whale’ actor Jesse Eisenberg, who plays Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Andrew Garfield, who appears as the site’s co-founder Eduardo Saverin.
Production on the ‘The Social Network’ is scheduled to begin next month in Boston, before moving to Los Angeles.
