After watching this Steve's post from yesterday, I was in awe of how awesome Justin Timberlake is. When I asked myself, "Justin Timberlake is the new ???", I was absolutely stumped until it hit me: Justin Timberlake is the new Don Johnson! DUH.
Look at the similarities:
Johnson is a Golden Globe winning actor for his role in Miami Vice.
Timberlake has won six Grammy Awards, two Emmys, and was prominently featured in "Dick in a Box."
Johnson also goes by DJ and "The Don."
Timberlake goes by JT, and "Wm.™ Steven Humphrey's Future Lover."
In the late 1960s, Johnson was in a psychedelic rock band called Horses.
'N Sync was formed in 1995, fronted by Timberlake and JC Chasez who are hung like horses.
Johnson played an undercover police detective, and typically wore thousand dollar Versace and Hugo Boss suits over pastel cotton t-shirts.
Timberlake would look amazing covered in wet leaves and feces.
I mean really, do I need to keep going?!
