The 'Sexy Back' star plays a folk singer in the forthcoming Coen brother's blockbuster Inside Llewyn Davis.
Justin Timberlake has been pictured out in New York with his new beard as he shoots scenes for the upcoming Coen brother's film Inside Llewyn Davis.
The 'Cry Me A River' singer can be seen sporting the neatly presented facial hair as he wears a v-neck grey jumper in photos taken from the set of the 1960's based movie.
The singer has become one of the most sought after actors since he took a hiatus from music including roles in The Social Network, Friends With Benefits and recent sci-fi hit In Time.
Justin plays Jim Berkey - a traveling folk singer – in the new flick and co star Oscar Issacc recently described the former N*Sync star's voice as perfect for the role.
The 'What Goes Around' star is also lined up to star as Sir Elton John in a new biopic of the 'Rocket Man' singer's life which is just awaiting a director before shooting begins.
