He’s bringing sexy back to the big screen! Justin Timberlake will serve as executive music producer and record music for the 2016 animated film Trolls, according to The Hollywood Reporter. And if that wasn't enough, he'll also voice a character in the movie: "survivalist" troll Branch, who embarks on a crazy adventure alongside Anna Kendrick's Princess Poppy.

“I have always envisioned bringing the two worlds of film and music together for one epic event [and] couldn’t be more excited that they will collide in DreamWorks’s Trolls,” Timberlake told THR.

The tracks will be the first new original music from JT since 2013's The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2, but he’s been busy—his adorable son Silas with wife Jessica Biel was born in April 2015. He shared an adorable snap of his “greatest gift ever” on Instagram last month:

You can hear new songs from the multi-talented dad when Trolls hits theaters Nov. 4.
