Singer and actor Justin Timberlake was initially nervous during the shooting of the documentary Justin Timberlake and the Tennessee Kids.
That was because the Americans themselves had to play in place of a fictional character like he normally does, he tells Reuters.
“During the premiere last night I had that feeling again. “Wow, a lot of people are going to see this’, I thought to myself,” said Timberlake.
Director Jonathan Demme (who previously, The Silence of the Lambs made) did hembeseffen that action is also a form of playing a role. “On stage you play a greater version of yourself,” says Timberlake.
Justin Timberlake and the Tennessee Kids follows the world-famous singer during a performance in Las Vegas: the conclusion of his The 20/20 Experience World Tour (2013 – 2015).
“The filming of the music is for me the purest form of filmmaking,” said director Demme. “There is no script to follow. The only story is the music itself.”
