Justin Timberlake offered one of the leads in the Coens Bros' Inside Llewyn Davis

10.31.2011

Justin Timberlake's star continues to rise! According to Variety, the IN TIME actor may be working soon with a new set of prestigious filmmakers: Joel and Ethan Cohen.

The brothers are currently prepping the music film INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS, which "focuses on the folk music scene in Greenwich Village in the 1960s and the title character is loosely based on Dave Van Ronk, a folk singer who was friends with Bob Dylan, among other famous musicians." That title role will be played by Oscar Issac (DRIVE) - a struggling musican trying to make ends meet - while JT's been offered the part of 'Jim', another folk musician that's married to a woman named 'Jean' (played by Carrey Mulligan).

Producer Scott Rudin (NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, TRUE GRIT, THE SOCIAL NETWORK) is behind this latest project. Schedule permitting, I would think Timberlake would jump at the chance to work with the Coens, particularly for a role that would put a spotlight on two of the man's key talents. I personally love the idea, but what do you guys think?

Jealousy...probably, but I'm not a fan of his work in any movie i've seen him in thus far. Not denying his talent, but coen brothers news, so thats good

I really dig this blog..

but you guys should definitely start checking your spelling, grammar. It's become more and more frequent the last couple of months. Your credibility is starting to teeter, my friends.

Like I said though, the content is spot on, personality too, just take your job a little more serious. just a little feedback. It's not just you, George.

Bye niggas

I always have doubts when the Coens make smaller films of less obvious subject matter and/or cast unknowns- such as A Serious Man and O Brother, Where Art Thou- and yet every time they surprise and satisfy me. I trust their decision making so if they think Timberlake would be good in this film, I agree.

I am really looking forward to this one now. Timberlake isn't someone I'd naturally assume the Coens would cast, but then he has done some inspired work in the past, too. I'm really pumped for the idea that the brothers are attempting an Altman-style of filmmaking.

Sounds fine to me, the Coens know their casting.
