Lifetime’s Britney Spears biopic has found its Justin Timberlake, according to Hollywood sources.
Actor Nathan Keyes will play a younger version of the 35-year-old singer in the network’s movie Britney. Lifetime confirmed the news Wednesday by retweeting word of the casting.
Spears and Timberlake met as teens on The New Mickey Mouse Club and dated from 1999 to 2002. The couple split amid rumors Spears had cheated, although the pair appear to be friendly today.
“Sure!” Timberlake told E! News this month when asked if he would collaborate with Spears. “Absolutely, absolutely … I’m accessible! Give us a call!”
