Zac Efron And Justin Timberlake Seeking Same Role On “Memphis”
Actor Zac Efron and singer/actor Justin Timberlake are vying for the same role on the expected feature film “Memphis.” The project is currently wowing viewers as a Tony-winning Broadway play with a feature film adaptation expected in the near future.
Both Efron and Timberlake have been spotted in New York City attending the play to check out the lead role of Huey Calhoun, a 1950s era DJ.
At this point no film adaptation is confirmed, however Oliver Stone’s presence in the crowd at the show has led to speculation that such a project is inevitable. Stone reportedly even met with David Bryan, a writer for the show, about doing an adaptation and Bryan is apparently interested in Timberlake playing the role.
