Justin Timberlake’s Most Recent Project Is Hard to Recognize


Justin TimberlakeAnd his wife Jessica Biel have been together since 2007, but they’ve never worked together on a project. That’s all about to change with Biel’s new show Candy. Timberlake recently posted an onset picture of himself that many fans find unrecognizable.

Timberlake’s New Look

“Belly’s fake, hair’s fake, mustache is real. Meet Diffy,”Timberlake captioned the photo of Biel and him in their costumes. Timberlake shared behind-the-scenes photos that fans loved and they filled their comments sections with jokes about Timberlake’s onscreen appearance. “Never thought I would see the day where they could make JT unattractive to me,”One fan made a joke. “Today was that day. Well done costume team. Well done.”

Another laughed “That belly looked so real to me I almost screamed.” Some of Timberlake’s famous friends also voiced their love for his character’s appearance. Ryan Tedder, a musician wrote. “I approve this look,”Mary Steenburgen, actress, made the comment. “You guys look amazing!” 

How Timberlake scored The Role

How did Timberlake get the part? Biel, who was also an executive producer, said that Timberlake came up with the idea while reading the script together with his wife. 

Even though Biel loved the idea, she told Timberlake that the show couldn’t afford to hire an actor with his level of stardom. “We told him, ‘We can’t pay you,’ and he goes, ‘I don’t care about getting paid. I just want you to pay for my wig, and I want my prosthetic belly,”” The actress stated. “We were like, ‘That we can do.’”

Candy Melanie Lynskey plays Candy Montgomery, the woman who was accused of killing Betty Gore. The murder took place in Texas in the ’70s, and it shocked people around the nation. 

Melanie Lynskey, co-star of the show, also brought her husband along

Timberlake isn’t the only husband on set, though. Lynskey’s husband, actor Jason Ritter, also managed to score a spot on the show as deputy Denny Reese. “[Show co-creator] Robin [Veith] was like, ‘Wait a minute. He looks very period-appropriate,’” Lynskey explained. “He had to shave the mustache off in the end, because they were like, not everyone could have mustaches, but Robin had a little flash of inspiration.” 

The couple’s first collaboration in nearly 10 years of marriage is this true-crime series. The fans of Candy I love to see Timberlake and Biel together on screen; fingers crossed they collaborate on something soon!
