In The Social Network, Justin Timberlake’s character played an important role in launching Facebook (FB) into the stratosphere. As it turns out, the star is a pretty good investor in real life, too.
JT was part of a $35 million deal that sold MySpace to an advertisement company. We’ll have to wait to find out whether it was a good investment, but Forbes suggests that Timberlake had a major part in the deal, so he could stand to make big profits if the website goes anywhere.
Meanwhile, the former boy band member has been making a slew of other investments, including startups and clothing lines, not to mention that golf course he bought.
It’s easy to be skeptical about MySpace, because… well, it’s MySpace. But Justin already brought sexy back, so maybe he can do the same with MySpace.
