TIMBERLAKE Believes Patience Is Key To Avoid Being Typecast!

By on 18 July, 2011


Pop star-turned-actor Justin Timberlake apparently turned down several movie scripts focused on the teen market at the start of his film career, because he was worried about being typecast.


The Bad Teacher‘ star has turned his back on music to focus on building a career on the big screen, and reveals he refused to take on any projects which were aimed at the fanbase he already had as a singer. But a wise Timberlake insists his patience paid off as it made sure he wasn’t “pigeonholed”.

In an interview with The New York Times, he said:

“I don’t think in genres. Early on especially, I turned down a lot of scripts that were targeted to a demographic I already had. It’s about being patient, and having something in the back of your mind about not getting pigeonholed.”


No wonder I haven’t seen him in many movies recently. I was beginning to think that he should go back to singing(?).
