Justin Timberlake will be heavily involveed in the next chapter of the Shrekfranchise (A picture of him hung in Fiona’s bedroom in the last film). According to USA Today, the actor/singer will lend his voice to Shrek 3, playing the role of a young King Arthur in the film.
In the movie, “Artie,” King Harold’s rebellious nephew who has no interest in being king, will need Shrek to help him act like royalty.
Despite their high-profile relationship, Diaz, who is the voice of Shrek’s wife, Fiona, had no say in Timberlake landing the job, producer Aron Warner claims. “Our desire was to get somebody who is visible and had their own persona to bring to the table,” he says. “Justin fit that bill perfectly.”
Warner says there’s another surprise in the next sequel; Shrek and Fiona may be having a baby.
“In teaching Artie to be king, Shrek has to overcome his deep-seated fear of being a father”, says the producer. “That’s all I’m going to say”.
