The Chicago Sun-Times spoke with director Craig Brewer about his latest project ‘Black Snake Moan’, which he’s cast Justin Timberlake as a young man going off to Iraq. “I needed a guy to play a soldier going off to war,” Brewer said of the *NSYNC star. “I needed an American son. I need someone to break America’s heart, so Justin Timberlake is going to Iraq.”
Another story making the rounds, supposedly from The Chicago Sun-Times claiming that Justin and JC Chasez were caught discussing Justin saying he and ex-lover Britney Spears “have been more than friends” and met in Chicago during CFTC, is phoney. The story was not reported in the Sun Times.
