As cameras rolled, the former boy band frontman looked to have officially reformed himself into a versatile actor as he hit his mark over and over again like an old pro.
Meanwhile, Justin says Boo Boo the bear is “the good angel on Yogi Bear’s shoulder,” and the voice of reason for the cartoon favourite, about to hit the big screen.
JT provides the voice of Yogi Bear’s little friend in the 3D movie, released this week and based on cartoon characters enjoyed by generations of children on television.
“Back when I was in school, I’d procrastinate doing my homework by watching cartoons, and ‘Yogi Bear’ was one of the staples of after-school television and Saturday mornings,” he says. “Boo Boo is definitely Yogi’s conscience. He’s the good angel on Yogi’s shoulder, always there to remind him of what’s important. But even as he’s the voice of reason, he does it all while being a cute little bear with a nasal-y voice.”
JT’s movie career has included a voice role in the Shrek animated blockbusters as well as The Open Road and Alpha Dog — and more recently he played Napster founder Sean Parker in Facebook movie The Social Network.
