Justin Timberlake has caught the acting bug!

The pop star has just signed on to star in The Social Network, a film about the early days of Facebook and based on the book The Accidental Billionaire.

Timberlake will play Sean Parker, the entrepreneur who created Napster and became Facebook’s President when they incorporated in 2004.

Jesse Eisenberg (Adventureland) will portray Mark Zuckerberg, the 25-year-old CEO of Facebook, who is worth over $100 million. Andrew Garfield (Boy A) has been cast as Eduardo Saverin, one of the social networking site’s co-founders.

The film is set to begin shooting next month, with Fight Club director David Fincher in charge.
