[photogallerylink id=126568 align=right][lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Justin Timberlake[/lastfm] has been drifting further and further away from music almost everyday because it seems like everyone wants him in their movies. Who can blame them? But still we miss that whole bringing “SexyBack” thing that Justin did so well.
The latest celeb who has Justin at the top of his “Play Me In a Movie” list is living legend and songwriter,[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Elton John[/lastfm]. “I’ve got a wish list of people,” Elton told the paper. “No. 1 on my wish list is Justin Timberlake, because he played me before in a David LaChapelle video of ‘Rocket Man’ and was superb.”
Well that’s a good point, but what about the music? It’s fair to say that a Elton John biopic will definitely be all about the music, but John has a more theatrical view in mind, think “Moulin Rouge.”
“It’s going to be a surreal look at my life, and not just a factual look at my life,” he said. “I just don’t want it to be a normal biopic because my life hasn’t been like that.
“And it only goes up to when I go into rehab in 1990. It starts with me going into rehab and ends when I come out.“
Timberlake hasn’t commented on whether or not he’s got the role for sure, but the script is in the works and Elton is all about follow through.
Especially at this time in his life when he’s realized that his days of Pop radio are over, but admits that gives him more freedom. “As Elton John, my days on pop radio are over, and I know that and I accept it and I’m not unhappy about it,” John said. “It’s a different time of my life now, and it gives me the freedom to do whatever kind of music I want to do.”
