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'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:

We’re not going to lie: Other than a little crooning on the part of Justin Timberlake, and a visit from Tina Fey, this week’s offerings are pretty serious, but in a good, high-quality drama kind of way. There’s controversy, psychopathy, lying, scandal, spies, and danger. You’re welcome.

Kick off your week tonight by catching what is sure to be the highly polarizing season 2 finale of Girls, and then I recommend you shut your eyes and, without looking back, jump into the intense and oh-so-entertaining drama from Scandal, The Americans, and more during the rest of your week.

Here’s what you need to look out for this week:

Girls, 9 p.m., HBO

It’s season-finale time for the anti-sitcom comedy’s second go-around. And after the controversies we’ve already seen, we’re willing to bet that tonight’s episode is going to be the talk of the town come Monday. READ FULL STORY
