Chat with Justin Timberlake, Mike Myers
Timberlake and Myers will be at ESPN headquarters, as their new movie "The Love Guru" prepares to open in theaters on June 20. The movie is the story of Pitka (Myers) who is an American raised by gurus at an ashram and returns to the United States. Pitka's self-help methods are put to the test when he steps in to reconcile the relationship of a Toronto Maple Leafs player and his estranged wife. However, the player's wife has already started dating a rival hockey player from the Los Angeles Kings (Timberlake).
Timberlake, best known for being a singer both as a solo artist as well as a member of the group 'N Sync, continues to build on his acting career. "The Love Guru" is his seventh film. In addition to his acting and singing career, Timberlake will host the 16th annual ESPY Awards on July 20.
Myers is appearing in just his first live action movie since his 2003 role as The Cat in "The Cat in the Hat." Since then, he has done the voice for Shrek in five different Shrek spinoffs. Myers, a Canadian native, is a big hockey fan and a big Leafs fan, which led, in part, to the story of "The Love Guru."
Send in your questions now and then join Timberlake and Myers at 4:55 p.m. ET on Friday!

Mike: if you pinned the "Love Guru" in shag match against Austin Powers for a 'date' with [enter name of any shagalicious babe here], who wins?
Mike Myers (5:00 PM)
The Love Guru! Because the Love Guru can speak to all matters of the heart!

Justin...did you have to learn how to skate?
Justin Timberlake (5:01 PM)
I did know a little about skating. Had read about it in a magazine. I got a crash course in playing goalie. Literally a crash course by the way.
Do either of you really believe in karma?
Mike Myers (5:02 PM)
I'm afraid if I say yes of what will happen! I believe in drama more than karma.
The real question here is whether this movie will help further the cause and maybe get it in front of Congress to outlaw speedos. Any chance of that?
Justin Timberlake (5:02 PM)
I think the underlying theme of this movie is that no one past, present or future should ever be caught alive or dead in a speedo.
Mike Myers (5:03 PM)
The second I get home I'm in my speedo.
Justin Timberlake (5:03 PM)
Follow up .. unless you are Mike Meyers.
Mike Myers (5:03 PM)
It's uncomfortable at parties.

I know lots of celebs keep clothes from the movies they do but did either of you ever think about keeping your mustaches?
Mike Myers (5:04 PM)
I'm incapable of growing a beard due to my "patchiness problem" but I am in the process of buying a face murkin.
Justin Timberlake (5:04 PM)
I'd like to add that the second underlying theme is that no one past present or future should be caught dead with a duster mustache. Unless you ride a bull for a living. Or are a chef for Sweden.
Justin do you think if you had devoted the same amount of time and energy to sports that you did to singing, acting, etc., you could have been a pro athlete?
Justin Timberlake (5:05 PM)
Without a doubt!!!!
Justin Timberlake (5:06 PM)
When I join the Seniors Tour I will prove it! (he said modestly)
Mike Myers (5:06 PM)
Even at 45 I am three weeks of training away from playing in the NHL. I recognize that is sad.
Mike, was this whole movie just an elaborate scheme to get chicks?
Mike Myers (5:07 PM)
My fellowship at Cambridge was my elaborate way to get chicks. Comedy is how I gained prominence in the field of philosophy.
Mike Myers (5:07 PM)
I am not the sort of actor that would constantly mention the movie The Love Guru opens June 20. But it does.
Justin Timberlake (5:08 PM)
Neither am I. But thanks for your questions!
Buzzmaster (5:09 PM)
Sorry.. the guys have to run! The life of a celebrity! But they wanted to say thanks for taking the time to ask questions!
