Yes, yes, yes! Lifetime’s Britney Spears biopic is going to be full of familiar faces, as the network just released a photo of the actor playing Justin Timberlake! But that’s not all — they also cast the roles for Kevin Federline, Jenna Dewan Tatum, Wade Robson and more.
If you’re anything like us, then you’re probably super excited for Britney Spears‘ forthcoming Lifetime biopic, Britney, which is set to premiere in 2017. The project, which will follow Britney’s life from a young age to superstardom, was announced in August, and now we’re getting a first look at the entire cast!
Natasha Bassett will be playing Britney, while Nathan Keyes will play Justin Timberlake. Furthermore, Clayton Chitty was cast as Kevin Federline, Peter Benson as Larry Rudolph, Tamara Thorsen as Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Markian Tarasiuk as Wade Robson, Kelly McCabe as Jason Alexander, Nicole Oliver as Spears’ mom, Lynn Spears, and Matthew Harrison as the singer’s father Jamie Spears — BuzzFeed first reported the casting news.
As we previously to you, the biopic will touch upon a number of moments throughout Britney’s life, including her famous breakup with Justin, her short marriage to Jason Alexander, her breakdown in 2007 and eventual comeback!
In case you’re unaware, Britney famously dated Justin from 1999 to 2002, married and divorced the father of her two children Kevin Federline between 2004 and 2007, briefly married her childhood friend Jason Alexander in 2004 (pre-Kevin Federline), got upset when Justin allegedly dated Jenna Dewan-Tatum for a hot second following their split in 2002, and may or may not have cheated on Justin with choreographer Wade Robson sometime between 2001 and 2002.
