Justin Timberlake 's '20/20 Experience 2 of 2' vs. 'Runner Runner': An LOL-worthy line battle

Justin Timberlake is a busy man. The singer-turned-actor (turned singer again) has been jetting around the world promoting his latest film, Runner Runner, while also handling the release of The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2.

But a busy Justin just means we have a chance to pick apart his work here at EW HQ. So for fun, we took a closer look at some of the funniest (intentional or not) lyrics on his new album and put them head-to-head with equally LOL-worthy lines from Runner Runner, in which JT plays a Princeton grad named Richie who’s dragged into an underground gambling ring led by Ben Affleck’s Ivan Block.

Here are our picks:

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon: Two Twits making hashtag happen

Last night, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake tried to make “hashtag” trend all by itself.

Timberlake, who’s spending every Tuesday this month with his late-night pal, in advance of the release of his new album, The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2, on Sept. 30, was just sitting in Late Night‘s guest room, eating some homemade cookies, when Fallon stopped by to hang. Or as Timberlake said, setting off the hashtag olympics, he was just “hashtag chilling.”

Back and forth it went, with Fallon landing the best hashtag shout-outs — hashtag [Cookie Monster eating sound] and hashtag [Ray Romano calling for Debra].

The guys got carried away — which was the point — but Questlove’s hashtag contribution might have the best hope of actually trending.

Justin Timberlake's super-sized 'TKO': How many Hot 100 singles can you fit in it? PopWatch investigates!

Fans waited a very long time for Justin Timberlake’s return to music. And thanks to the length of his new songs, they can spend about the same amount of time listening to that music.

With a two-part album and songs like “Mirrors,” which has a run time of 8:06, and newest single “TKO” (7:04), Timberlake is quite literally squeezing every second of music out of his long-awaited return. But just how drastic are his song lengths? Are they that much longer than the biggest songs right now?

The short answer: Pretty much.

Below is a list of the Billboard Hot 100 top 10 along with the run time for each of the songs:

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon flash back to '90s summer at camp

If a sketch from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon is to be believed, in 1995 Justin Timberlake was just a nerdy kid at camp (with a head full of “NSYNC: The Early Years” hair) and he was just like you: He had a crush on Topanga from Boy Meets World and sang Hootie and the Blowfish songs every chance he got.

If only you’d been there, too! Maybe you’d hear him one night and, I don’t know, go over to his room and then he’d sing to you, and then you’d make a joke about something ’90s related, and he’d think you were really charming, and then he’d kiss you and fall in love with you a little bit. Then he’d go off and be world famous, but it would all be fine, because he fell in love with you first.

But he didn’t. Instead, he graduated from camp (or The Mickey Mouse Club) and now sings songs with Jimmy Fallon.

Watch the late night clip — which once again has teenage Fallon and Timberlake being goofy nerds at camp — below: READ FULL STORY

Justin Timberlake's introspective 'T Magazine' profile: His five best quotes

Justin Timberlake — the former NSYNCer-turned-pop culture Renaissance man — isn’t going away anytime soon.

At least that’s the takeaway from his T Magazine profile by Michael Hirschorn in the New York Times. Tracking his days from a child star and standout boy bander to his current pop/comedy dominance, Hirschorn describes Timberlake thusly: “He is his generation’s dapper master of ceremonies, turning up as a reliable good time on everything from Saturday Night Live, to Jimmy Fallon, to the MTV Video Music Awards and, of course, the Super Bowl.”

In the interview, we see a more ruminative side of the 32-year-old Timberlake, musing on his unusually long career.

Here, we’ve collected his best quotes from the interview. And if reading his words isn’t your thing, at least check out T Magazine‘s slick black-and-white photo shoot of Timberlake lookin’ Wuthering Heights-moody wearing a nearly $3,000 shirt.

Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake create an evolution of end zone dances -- VIDEO

It’s a Late Night Touchdown!

Jimmy Fallon is quickly becoming the king of morning work day pick-me-ups. On Tuesday night’s Last Night with Jimmy Fallon, the former SNL-er created another evolution of dance video (he poked fun at mom dancing with the First Lady), this time parodying  football players’ end zone dances, clearly inspired by Judson Laipply’s original comedic stab at the celebratory move. In addition to Fallon’s fun-loving humor, there’s the x-factor of triple-threat dance partner Justin Timberlake. Decked in t-shirt jerseys,  the pair work out some amusing moves like the “Taking A Selfie,” the “Old-Timey Railroad Car,” the “Butt Wax On Wax Off,” and others, with especially creative naming conventions.

Watch them score (lots more fans) in the segment “The Evolution of End Zone Dancing” here: READ FULL STORY

NSYNC play hacky sack backstage because they thought it was 1998 again -- VIDEO

No strings attached!

If you haven’t yet made peace with the fact that an NSYNC reunion album is probably not happening, this nostalgia-ready video isn’t going to help things. On Monday, Lance Bass uploaded a clip of a little pre-show hacky sack game among a group of guys. Nothing to see here!

OH WAIT. The guys were NSYNC and the game was right before the VMAs, a.k.a. their pre-show performance ritual of passing a hacky sack to all five of them without dropping the ball lives on. Yippie-Yi-Yay! These are men in their 30s, so they are a little out of practice. The video is mostly cute for watching them try (Oh, Starbucks-clutching Justin, you do care!) and briefly remembering their goofy personas, stellar athletic performances or not.

Check out the video below and contemplate how many dollars you would spend to hang out backstage with the ever-so-briefly reunited boy band. (The limit does not exist.)

For the next week, each day all the bands listed below will be competing in various categories. While an EW writer will be advocating for each, the final decision is up to you. Each day a band wins the vote, they’ll receive a point. At the end of a week, whichever band has the most points will be declared EW’s Ultimate Boy Band.

Yesterday, Backstreet Boys won a victory over the others for Best Group Appearance with 42% of the vote. Today’s category? Best Music Videos. READ FULL STORY
