If Justin Timberlake's highly rated "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig left you longing for more of the singer's comedic stylings, you're in luck: An unaired skit from the show's dress rehearsal has just turned up online in which Timberlake pokes fun at his decision to pursue an acting career.
In the sketch, Timberlake plays composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who, according to the intro, was the biggest music star of the mid-1870s when he decided to give it all up.
"I've been working in music since I was a boy," Timberlake, wearing a white powdered wig, says when Mozart's staff asks what he's working on next. "Now I'm going to take a break from music and become an actor."
The staff laughs and Mozart reveals that he is doing a "com-rom" about friends who decide to have romantic benefits and a drama about a university student who starts a vast social network. He also informs them that he got plenty of acting experience on the Austrian Mouse Club, where he worked with such talents as Little Beethoven, Little Haydn, Christina, and Sir Ryan Gosling.
Mozart's staff continues to question his decision—as well as his "hipster" fashion choices—and threaten to go work for Wolfgang Amadeus Bieber. A horrified Mozart tries to convince them not to leave, and they agree to stay as long as he continues to sing and dance.
Shortly afterward, Bach enters the picture, invites Mozart to a wild party, and asks if he's going to bring anything.
"Why, yes, as a matter of fact, I am," replies Mozart. "I'm bringing sexy, Bach."
