On Sunday at 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET, Yahoo Live will live stream Justin Timberlake’s concert from Kórinn Sports Hall in Reykjavík, Iceland. Tune in HERE to watch !
Is there anything Justin Timberlake can’t do? The pop star is currently entertaining fans on his 20/20 World Tour. He’s also launched a successful career on the big screen. And the 33-year-old is already a Saturday Night Live legend – having delivered some of the show’s most memorable moments. ( D— in a Box, anyone?)
What’s JT’s secret to being a repeat – and repeatedly hilarious – feature on the live comedy show? The triple-threat brings the silly. Take Wrappingville: Timberlake appears as an outlandishly dressed, dueling holiday gift wrap “rapper” along with host Jimmy Fallon done up as a gift bag.
He’s also OK with being the butt of a joke. In Immigrant Tale, Timberlake plays his ancestor Cornelius, who foresees his current-day descendent as a popular singer who will wear “tiny vests, thin ties, and outdated hats.” Cornelius cracks that on him, “It will work.”
In a self-mocking skit, Mozart: Dress Rehearsal (which never made it to broadcast), Timberlake spoofs the 18th-century musical prodigy, who coincidentally dreams of becoming a movie star. Mozart’s acting experience? Membership in “ze Austrian Mouse Club,” naturally.
Cast member Bobby Moynihan recently summed up Timberlake’s SNL success. “He could be a cast member on the show,” Moynihan said. “He’s so good at what he does, and he’s such a nice, level-headed person. He writes stuff when he’s there; he’s responsible for some amazing sketches that have been on SNL, so that dude’s a class act.”
Enjoy some of Timberlake’s best SNL moments.
