Actress Jessica Biel is reportedly in the middle of recording her debut album and has enlisted lover Justin Timberlake as one of her collaborators. A close friend of the actress states that Justin is very supportive and beside featured in one of her new songs, he will also help his girlfriend writing and producing some materials in the album.
Speaking of her music project, the star, who has been spotted at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 8 for the premiere of her new comedy film "Easy Virtue", ensures music lovers that her record will be a "Billboard smash". Her pals even describe it as "a cross beetween Alicia Keys and Madonna."
Furthermore, her friends also reveal that Jessica is more interested in singing rather that acting. "Most people don't know that Jessica's first love is actually singing, not acting, and she's appeared in productions of 'Annie' and 'The Sound of Music'. Jessica is really excited about the CD!" one of the star's friends explains.
Elsewhere, while Jessica tries her hand at music industry, Justin will reportedly jump deeper into the big screen. Barry Sonnenfeld recently states that he has actively been courting the "SexyBack" singer for the lead role in his upcoming movie "Moist" as a morgue attendant who becomes a mafia king while trying to track down the real life inspiration for an erotic tattoo.
Barry had talked about the project with Justin last year when the star just started to shoot his first film, "Edison Force", which ended up going straight to video. However, despite Justin's interest to take part in Barry's movie, the project has been suspended due to some financial problems and now there hasn't any statement if Justin will take the offer or let it fall to other names that Barry has in mind for the lead, including Jake Gyllenhaal, Ashton Kutcher, and Justin Long.
