Timberlake portrays Napster founder Sean Parker in a movie about the creation of Facebook. The film is based on the book The Accidental Billionares. On working with director David Fincher Timberlake says:
He is one of the most brave directors you could ever be lucky enough to work with. But, I’ll say this as well: he does not get bored easily. And when I say easily, I mean at all. Every take he would find something that was so specific. There was no question in your mind what he was trying to get you to accomplish, what he wanted to see through your character. I’ve never seen someone so hyper-smart and multitasking.
