Napster founder: 'Timberlake is not me'

Napster founder Sean Parker has claimed that Justin Timberlake
inaccurately portrayed him in The Social Network
The internet entrepreneur, who is seen in David Fincher's film as a party-loving, smooth-talking mentor to Facebook's founder Mark Zuckerberg, praised the 'Carry Out'
singer's acting skills but stated that his on-screen incarnation is ultimately a fictional creation.
"It's a great performance of a character that isn't me," he told Us Weekly
Upon being asked whether the Oscar buzz currently surrounding Timberlake is justified, Parker commented: "That's a good question. It's not my industry."
Parker's complaint comes days after Zuckerberg objected
to his representation in the hit movie.
Timberlake previously admitted that the prospect of playing Parker "scared the s**t"
out of him.
