It has been revealed that Justin Timberlake is set to star in the next Coen Brothers film -- after rapper Matisyahu let slip that he lost out on the role to Justin!
Matisyahu recently auditioned to play Carey Mulligan's husband in upcoming film Inside Llewyn Davis, which tells the story of a struggling folk musician.
Jessica Biel opens up about her split from Justin Timberlake -- and upcoming wedding!
But he failed to win over the Oscar winning duo and the part went to Timberlake instead.
He told New York Magazine, "I actually auditioned for the recent Coen brothers movie, and that would have been awesome."
"When I tried out for that, I don't usually drink or smoke, but I had a drink of Scotch and a couple of cigarettes to get my voice all raspy. But Justin Timberlake got the role. Whatever."
Justin Timberlake's rep denies he is working on a new album!
If Inside Llewyn Davis, which will document the 1960s folk scene and is loosely based on Dave Van Ronk's memoir, is anything like the Coen Brothers other films -- then this may be a chance to see Justin really come into his own as an actor.
Are you excited to see Justin in this latest film?
