With Inside Llewyn Davis, the Coen Brothers give us a pure look at New York City and Greenwich Village before all the trannies moved in. What a time it was. Everything looked almost out of focus and you could play with your cat on the subway without fear of someone snatching it out of your hands and running off.

We still have five months before the film hits theaters but if the previews are any indication, John Goodman and his Lloyd Christmas haircut steal the show. “Folk singer with a cat. Is that part of your act? Every time you play a C major, you puke a hairball?” He’s kidding, of course, but that would be pretty awesome to see. Take notes, Ke$ha.

The Coen Brothers have a knack for being among the best pure storytellers in film, so whether or not they’re making a biopic on Kim Kardashian, or a film about mutant killer sharks, you can bet it’s going to suck you in.

Which is good, because a big portion of our readership probably doesn’t have profound connections to the Greenwich folk scene, so we can use all the help we can get in caring for those underemployed troubadours.

But if anyone can make us care about these guys, it’s the Coen Brothers.

John Goodman is set to join The Coen Brothers‘ upcoming Inside Llewyn Davis. My dream of seeing him pull a piece on Justin Timberlake could become true!

The film stars Oscar Isaac and Carey Mulligan (with an offer out to Timberlake). Isaac will play the lead character, Dave van Ronk, a real-life 1960′s folk singer who was friends with Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and other famous musicians. There aren’t many details at this about the role Goodman will play but if history is any indicator, it will be the sweaty, violent guy.

Remember that Coe brothers folk music project that was reported on a while back? Well, it just got the shot of hipness that might make it big news in the entertainment world: A lead role has been offered to none other than Justin Timberlake. The movie, called Inside Llewyn Davis,  follows a “struggling folk musician born and bred in Queens who, despite being a talented singer and guitarist, just can’t seem to make ends meet playing music.” If Timberlake accepts the opportunity to work with the Coen brothers (uh, right, “if”), he’ll be joining Carey Mulligan and Oscar Isaac in the movie as Jim, a folk musician and husband to Carey Mulligan.

Timberlake has had a lot of acting work lately, but working with revered auteurs like the Coens could put him back in a role as high-profile and highly praised as his performance in David Fincher’s The Social Network last year. As Mr. Timberlake’s most trusted adviser, I’ll be sure to let him know this. I’ll also tell him you said “hey.” (Variety)
