Justin Timberlake

Bad Teacher

20 Jun, 2011

Timberlake plays a substitute teacher in the comedy film starring alongside Cameron Diaz, Lucy Punch, and Jason Segal. On the song he performs during the movie, Timberlake says:

It’s pretty obvious that I put my body on the line for comedy, so why not my voice? Honestly, the lyrics were the screenwriters’, and I just tried to create the most terrible melody that I could. It had to be so bad that they could not market it in the trailer. It’s really just an extension of the character. It was a total collaboration between me, the writers and the director.
