With deep regret I must post that Justin’s grandfather has passed. William Bomar was the father of Lynn. My heart goes out to Justin and his family as well as friends.
Big screen hunks Justin Timberlake and Hugh Jackman hit a high note together over a post-Christmas dinner… literally.
The actors, who’ve been known to sell out a crowd when they’ve taken over the microphone, were spotted having dinner at the ultra-exclusive Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Ski Resort and Spa in Avon, Colo. Dec. 27, an eyewitness told Celebuzz exclusively.
“They were out for dinner at the 8100 Mountainside Bar & Grill,” said the eyewitness.
“They were joking with a musician in the lobby. They were requesting songs and cracking jokes and seemed really friendly.”
Timberlake, 31, who’s long been a fan of Beaver Creek Ski Resort and whose wife Jessica Biel has signed on to star opposite Jackman as Viper in The Wolverine, joined the Aussie heartthrob, who just so happens to be staying at the swankiest hotel in the area for the holidays. And the stars went relatively unnoticed on their time off before award season kicks into high gear in the New Year.
“People stayed away for the most part,” added the eyewitness. “It’s a fancy but quiet restaurant.”
… according to perez…
Aww look at Jessica Biel’s hubby being his sexy, scholarly self!
Justin Timberlake was snapped (above) on the Princeton University campus while filming scenes for his upcoming film Runner Runner, which also stars JT’s bestie for life, Ben Affleck!
In the film Justin plays the protégé to Affleck’s character, who is a businessman dealing in offshore gambling… we assume the sexy singer/actor is also a Princeton attendee!
Looking VERY cute in an academic atmosphere, we must say!
We wonder if Jess and JT ever play naughty student and horny teacher, with Justin being the misbehaving college kid? LOLz!
Oof that nighttime fantasy is far too hot… our minds are melting out of our earholes!
Tony Lucca expects his upcoming return to “The Voice” to be “interesting” — to say the least.
The second season’s second runner-up is slated to perform on Tuesday’s [December 11] episode and tells Billboard he’s looking forward to being back. “It’s cool to kind of revisit all the crew and the people that you got real close to,” the Michigan-based singer-songwriter says. “I’ve been watching this latest season. I’m excited to meet some of these guys. As a finalist, you know what it’s like; you’ve been all the way through the fire. I think about how much has transpired since (May), then I’ll get back in the ring and feel like, ‘Wow, I was just here…’ ”
While Lucca is in California, meanwhile, he’ll also be sitting down with “The Voice” judge and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, who signed Lucca to his 222 Records label.
“I’ll be meeting with them for the first time to talk broad stroke strategy and more or less what 2013 is going to look like,” Lucca says. “We probably won’t get to tracking anything until the new year, but we’ll probably move quickly as well” — possibly, he adds, with an EP first, followed by a full album. “It’s obviously going to go big; it’s just a matter of how big and trying to decide if I’m gonna be the kind of artist that’s going to sell better in the Hot AC market or should go straight pop and do something big and super commercial. I don’t see that being the wisest step, but at the same time if (222) think they have the right strategy, I’m all ears. I’m excited to put in the work.”
Thanks to his success on “The Voice,” Lucca says he was “able to kind of walk through the front door of some (songwriting) opportunities in Nashville and L.A.” and has come up with “a pretty good batch of songs that I’m proud of. I’ve got a couple songs in a more rock, edgier vein. I’ve got some that are more like the singer-songwriter fare I’ve been creating over the years. Once we all kind of agree on which direction we’re going to go, then it’s a matter of finding the right songs that are going to work well at radio and wherever else.”
Lucca isn’t done writing yet, however, and he says he and former “Mickey Mouse Club” mate Justin Timberlake “have been constantly flirting with sitting down and working together. Trying to tie that guy down is like hitting a moving target, but I’d love to hear what we could do if we got together.”
On Lucca’s production wish-list, meanwhile, is Ryan Tedder. “We’ve crossed paths before,” Lucca says. “I think he’s got the Midas touch these days. He makes great records.”
Back at “The Voice,” Lucca demures on predicting a Season 3 winner. “I think the final four here are all well-deserving of it, all really great,” he says. “I’ve been a big fan of Terry McDermott the whole time. I’m stoked to see him still in there. I’d love to see Nicholas David carry on; I think he’s one of the kind, really refreshing. I definitely thought Dev (DeLoera) would have continued on, and I was surprised to see Amanda Brown go. I think she’s a phenomenal singer.”
And Lucca hopes his own appearance will “kind of refresh a lot of people’s memories, and they’ll recall some of the moments form Season 2 and remember the connection I made with Adam and how he was a man of his word by signing me, that I was deserving of that. I think people may recall all of that, and it’ll be a little stoking of the fire, I suppose.”
Southern Hospitality Development Corp. said Tuesday that it plans to open its Memphis-style barbecue restaurant in January in downtown Denver.
The restaurant, co-created by Justin Timberlake and backed locally by one Republic frontman Ryan Tedder, will be three blocks from Coors Field in the St. Elmo Hotel at 1433 17th St.
The company said construction on the restaurant and bar continues.
“Our expansion into downtown Denver is an important milestone for Southern Hospitality,” said Southern Hospitality Development’s chief executive Steve Cominsky. “The Southern Hospitality concept is one we believe will resonate well here. LoDO is certain to be a great market for us.”
The company says the menu will contain a “classic collection” of southern favorites, including barbecue and the pub fare “one would expect from a local Memphis neighborhood restaurant.”
Southern Hospitality restaurants were created jointly by friends Eytan Sugarman, Justin Timberlake and Trace Ayala.
The company expects the LoDo restaurant to be the first of 10 slated for development in key markets across the United States during the next three to five years.
Jessica told “Extra’s” AJ Calloway at the “Playing for Keeps” premiere that they plan on “just snowboarding. Going into the snow as usual.”
Justin proposed to Biel on a snowy holiday vacation in Montana last year, but the couple won’t necessarily be going back. This time they plan to go “wherever the snow is. We go with the snow.”
