AceShowbiz - Justin Timberlake perfectly recreated the iconic Simba lift on a random baby when he was at a golf tourney over the weekend. The singer was in between holes at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Tahoe when a new dad asked him to take a photo with his kid.
As seen in a video obtained by TMZ Sports, the fan, who happens to be a military vet, actually asked several celebs including Stephen Curry (II) and Tony Romo to hold up his baby. However, they both passed.
The new dad then asked Timberlake, and the singer accepted the request to pose with the baby. The "Can't Stop the Feeling!" hitmaker then held the kid up in the air while chanting Rafiki's verse from "The Circle of Life" in "The Lion King".
Speaking of "Lion King", Disney is developing a live-action remake of the 1994 animated movie, with Jon Favreau on board as a director. "The Lion King (2019)" has tapped Donald Glover and James Earl Jones to voice Simba and Mufasa respectively. Seth Rogen, John Oliver and Billy Eichner are also attached to the remake which is set for a July 19, 2019 release in the U.S.
