So many dreams just might come true. Not only is a Baywatch movie in the works, but Paramount is reportedly courting Justin Timberlake for a role in the upcoming flick, according to twitchfilm.com. Pretty sure that means he'll be in short shorts (and short shorts only) for most of the movie were he to take the role—no complaints here.

Timberlake would play a disgraced former Olympic swimmer who tries out for the Baywatch crew. Last year producer-director Ivan Reitman told The Hollywood Reporter about the film, "We still don’t have a script that’s makeable. I think it’s a big opportunity." While the movie and Timberlake's role are from from set in stone, we'll still be saying an extra prayer tonight.
