    Justin Timberlake said he was sweet on "The Social Network" from the start and found the Facebook flick, his latest film endeavor, to be a mouthwatering opportunity.

    "I feel lucky to have been in this film," the pop prodigy told Niteside during opening night of the 48th Annual New York Film Fest at Lincoln Center last week."What was in the script was like showing up at Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. It was a delicious script."

    Timberlake, who plays the role of real-life Napster co-founder Sean Parker, said he was excited to take part in the Aaron Sorkin and David Fincher dream-team undertaking in addition to his successful music career.

    "It's a warm and fuzzy [feeling]," he said of his accomplishments."I'm an entertainer. Other than that, I'm kind of a geek."

    "There was a lot there for this character," Timberlake said. "I had a lot of fun. It was a delicious part to perform."
