Justin Timberlake has clever family costume idea for Halloween

Justin Timberlake and wife Jessica Biel are loving being parents to 18-month-old son Silas, and have a clever idea for their outfits for Halloween this year.

With his new movie Trolls due for release next month (Nov16), Timberlake, 35, is thinking he might be able to pull some strings with some friends in the film's costume department to grab some character outfits for the fun holiday. The Timberlake family, like many celebrities in Hollywood, fully embrace the occasion because it's a great opportunity to dress up and trick or treat while not being recognised.

“I’m trying to put together a family theme, I may pull some rank and see if we can, maybe we’ll be Trolls," he told Extra host Mario Lopez on the red carpet at the film's Los Angeles premiere on Sunday (23Oct16).

"Maybe we’ll be some characters from the movie," he smiled.

In the film, Timberlake voices a character named Branch. There's no word yet on whether fellow parent co-stars like James Corden and Zooey Deschanel might also try and copy Timberlake's genius idea, which also works as some extra promotion for the film.

Meanwhile, Timberlake announced at the event that he's quite happy for Silas Randall not to grow any more at all.

“He’s a year and a half… want him to stay that size,” he joked, before adding that although there's no news on a sibling yet, he and Biel, 34, are definitely trying.

“I’m having a lot of fun practising,” Timberlake said, with a huge smile.

There may not be too much time for practise at the moment since both Justin and Jessica are busy working. Justin is currently filming director Woody Allen's untitled 2017 project alongside Kate Winslet and Juno Temple. And ten years after her TV series 7th Heaven ended, Jessica is returning to the small screen to star in and produce an hour-long drama called The Sinner, based on the best-selling book by Petra Hammesfahr and due to air next year (17).

On Monday (24Oct16), she posted a photo on Instagram of herself holding the TV movie script and pretending to look very nervous, adding, "Back to work… I'm not actually reading anything. I'm just privately hyperventilating."
