As an entertainer, what hasn’t Justin Timberlake done? He’s had international success in the music industry. He has put together a successful acting career. He’s showed us his great sense of humor, showmanship and electric stage presence.
Beyond all that, Timberlake gets our attention because he’s an all-around cool guy. Think of the Derek Jeter, Tom Brady or George Clooney level. Aside from his impressive career, he’s into what we’re into. Sports.
He’s usually courtside and gets the best seats in the house. Now he is part owner of the Memphis Grizzlies. You’ll catch him on the golf course playing and hosting his annual Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. He also owns (along with his wife), Mirimichi, an eco-friendly course in his native Millington, Tennessee.
