While Justin Timberlake is remaining mum on his upcoming role in the Coen Brothers' fictional folk-rock biopic Inside Llewyn Davis, he just revealed a crazy bit of news about the movie's soundtrack. It will feature a song that combines his talents with those of Marcus Mumford, the frontman of Grammy faves Mumford & Sons.

"I did work with Marcus Mumford on the soundtrack, so I became very good friends with them," Timberlake told MTV. "Marcus and myself, we all kind of worked on the music together. I don’t know any other world where we would have the opportunity to collaborate like that but it was so much fun. So not only will that be a great movie, but the music to it will be fantastic.”

So there you have it: The long pined-for collaboration between a member of Mumford & Sons and *NSYNC has finally happened, and we can thank the Coens for it.

P.S. Is there anything more adorable than that picture of Timberlake and Carey Mulligan above? Oh yeah, THIS.

June 23: Jack White's Really Rooting for the Home Team

Were the Cubs down or something? Jack White was spotted at last night's baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and San Diego Padres looking absolutely miserable. The Cubbies pulled out a 6-0 win over San Diego last night so the White Stripe ideally should have been enjoying himself in spite of the team's current 41-57 record.
