HeyUGuys:You’ve done comedy and drama, how was being the action star in this one, did you like doing that?
Justin Timberlake: Of course, that’s like boyhood fantasies lived out: To shoot guns and kiss the girl and beat the bad guys. And you get to do it where Colleen Atwood puts a suit on you. You get to drive a Jaguar. You know I told Andrew the future looks surprisingly retro in his mind. You know? I kind of dig that about it. My favorite sci-fi movies are the ones where everything is NOT that far off from, aesthetically, not that far off from where it is today. But kind of has it’s own uniqueness to it. I really like that about this movie as well.
HeyUGuys:What sort of similarities to you find between you and your character Will?
Justin Timberlake: There are so many. This is the first time that I’ve felt like it was the most personal. Everything that happens to Will is so tangible, even though this is such an otherworldly concept. Everything that happens with him and his mom, everything that happens… those basic feelings of revenge and contempt and wanting to change the system I think is something that everyone can relate to, I think. I know I could. They have a real basic level for me, those feelings. Plus, I think you always find a little bit of yourself in the characters you play, even if you’re playing the bad guy. No one thinks they’re the bad guys. Everyone wakes up and they’re the lead character in their own movie. I mean, where not like “Oh well, I’m Captain Hook!” We all think we’re Peter Pan!
