Lifetime’s upcoming biopic on Britney Spears has found its Justin Timberlake.
Actor Nathan Keyes has been cast as Timberlake in “Britney”, Entertainment Weekly confirms. He joins the already-cast Natasha Barrett who will play the “Toxic” singer.
Keyes has a recurring role on the series “Cleaners” and appeared in an episode of “Glee”.
“Britney” will chart the rise of the Louisiana pop singer through her early beginnings and through her struggles in the late 2000s. The unofficial biopic is expected to dig deep into the relationship and high-profile split between Spears and the NSYNC singer.
Spears wants nothing to do with the TV movie, telling EW she does not give her approval of the movie “in any way, shape or form… nor does it have her blessing.”
Lifetime posted a photo of Keyes dressed in his 2000s-era Timberlake costume.
