Justin Timberlake has revealed that he was scared to work on David Fincher's The Social Network, based on Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg.
"That scared the s--t out of me," Usmagazine.com quoted Timberlake as saying at the film's NYC premiere which hits screens nationwide on Oct. 1.
Zuckerberg is portrayed as a back-stabbing, arrogant, socially awkward Harvard student who invents the popular social networking site that accidentally makes him and his friends billionaires."This movie's dense. There's a lot there," added Timberlake, who plays Napster creator Sean Parker.
"It would take me all night to sort of go through what we talked about, about what this character is."
He also said that the character has "a lot of layers" and that Fincher helped him in "diagramming the arc and peeling back the layers."
"He's an actor's director, and he pulls performances out of people."
"I think it really touches on the younger generations and that We-want-what-we-want-and-we-want-it-really-fast [mentality]. We have the internet now where we can do that: We talk fast, we walk fast, we think fast."
