He got to use all of his talents...
In an interview with Billboard, Justin Timberlake spoke about his role for Inside Llewyn Davis, in which has to bring several of his skills to the table. Here are highlights:
On what he enjoys most about the role: "It's the first time that I've gotten to kind of do a lot of things that I love to do at the same time. It will always be a milestone for me to get to write, sing, act and bring it all together."
On the song "Please Mr. Kennedy: "I just started strumming these chords and strumming in a way that we felt was almost like (the Beach Boys') "Surfin' Safari" or a Coasters tune. It was just one of those things where when the punch lines fit in with the melody so good. We kind of just wrote the song in the back of this guitar shop."
On having fun with the movie: "We just all jammed together for a couple weeks. So you felt like this counter-culture collective. I don't like rules of `well, this is what you do, or this is the picture frame you're supposed to live in'. You just never know what might come out of trying everything."
