DreamWorks Animation announced at "Animation Now: Imagination Innovation Inspiration" at Lincoln Center today that Justin Timberlake is joining Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Antonio Banderas and real-life girlfriend Cameron Diaz in the voice cast for Shrek 3, opening May 18, 2007.

Timberlake will play a young King Arthur, or "Artie," King Harold's rebellious nephew who has no interest in being king, producer Aron Warner says. It's up to Shrek (Myers) to teach Artie how to act like royalty, Warner says.

You may remember that in Shrek 2, a poster of "Sir Justin" hangs in Fiona's girlhood bedroom.

Warner revealed a few more details saying "there is a baby involved" and that "in teaching Artie to be king, Shrek has to overcome his deep-seated fear of being a father."

Despite their high-profile relationship, Diaz, who is the voice of Shrek's wife, Fiona, had no say in Timberlake landing the job, Warner insists. "Our desire was to get somebody who is visible and had their own persona to bring to the table," he says. "Justin fit that bill perfectly." (In Shrek 2, a poster of "Sir Justin" hangs in Fiona's girlhood bedroom.)

Don't bother asking Warner for the skinny on the couple. Warner, who has produced all three Shrek films, says he "disappears into my work. I'll finish one of these movies and discover three years have slipped by. I'm the last person to ask about gossip."

He can dish a little on Shrek and bride Fiona. Warner says "there is a baby involved" in the third installment. "In teaching Artie to be king, Shrek has to overcome his deep-seated fear of being a father."

But whose baby is it?

"That's all I'm going to say," Warner says. "We've got to leave something for a surprise."
