Hallmark Channel And Hallmark Movies And Mysteries Summer 2016 TCA Press Tour Event - Red CarpetLifetime's Britney Spears biopic isn't going to leave out the Justin Timberlake drama, so naturally, the cast wouldn't be complete without an actor to play the *NSYNC heartthrob. We now now that Timberlake will be portrayed by Nathan Keyes, thanks to a Buzzfeed report.

As the boy bander, Keyes will share the screen with Natasha Barrett, who was previously cast as Spears. There seems to be a fair amount of focus on Spears' relationship with Timberlake in the TV movie, so someone's bound to cry us a river. Wade Robson, the choreographer with whom she was rumored to cheat on Timberlake, will be part of the story, played by Markian Tarasiuk. Additionally, Tamara Thorsen is taking on the role of Jenna Dewan, who once was an *NSYNC backup dancer and rumored to be dating Timberlake.

The cast also includes Clayton Chitty and Kelly McCabe, who will play Spears' ex-husbands Kevin Federline and Jason Alexander, respectively. Meanwhile, Nicole Oliver and Matthew Harrison will play the pop star's parents, Lynne and Jamie Spears. Peter Benson will portray Spears' longtime manager, Larry Rudolph.

As we'd expect from Lifetime, there will be plenty of drama to keep us entertained. To top if off -- literally -- we'll get the return of Timberlake's frosted tips. Keyes most recently appeared in the TV movie "JL Ranch," starring the likes of Melanie Griffith and John Voight. The actor's credits also include a recurring role on the Crackle series "Cleaners" and an appearance during "Glee" Season 5.

"Britney" is expected to debut on Lifetime in 2017.
