Justin Timberlake Bringing Back Baseball, Cologne in 2008

February 21, 2008 2:30 PM ET

In the lull since FutureSex/LoveSounds, Justin Timberlake keeps finding non-musical ways to occupy his time. The singer, who starred in Black Snake Moan, Southland Tales and Alpha Dog, will hit the big screen again, this time as a minor league baseball player in the film The Open Road. JT will play Carlton Garrett, a member of the Corpus Christi Hooks. The plot revolves around Garrett's trying to reconnect with his star athlete father (played by Jeff Bridges) and caring for his ailing mother. But filming isn't enough for Timberlake, as the singer will also collaborate with Parfums Givenchy to develop a new men's fragrance that will hit nostrils in the fall.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
