What is better than a spine-chilling crime drama to beat climate change? Well, jokes aside, climate change is real, folks! And with it, the true story of Candy Montgomery and Betty Gore upon which the Hulu’s miniseries is based. This 5-episode series will take you on a journey that passes through passions, desires, violence, brutality, and the human mind’s complexities. With a reliable cast to back these gripping realities of our life, the show will display some intense moments that will rile up our emotions for good.
Dealing with the question
First and foremost, we must deal with the question here “Is Justin Timberlake in Candy?” Short and a quick answer is a definite yes! While Jessica Biel is acting the role of Candy Montgomery, her spouse Justin Timberlake is playing the role of Deputy Steve Defibaugh. Steve Defibaugh is the real name of the Texas Sherrif’s deputy who investigated the murder of Betty Gore, which occurred in June of 1980 in Texas. Timberlake first appears in episode 4, flaunting his moustaches, acting out an important role in the investigation that led to the arrest of Candace Montgomery.
Dull yet sexy
The “SexyBack” singer may only appear as a recurring character, but his mundane look will impact you. The production house can only describe the simple and serious sheriff’s look as dull at best, but in a good way (there is a quaint charm of nobility at the display), Timberlake has genuinely pulled it off. The hot duo has worked in tandem to bring the absurdity of this brutal case.
Rest of the cast
While Jessica Biel has successfully built her career around a thriller, Melanie Lynskey, too, has played quirky roles such as Rose in the series Two and a Half Men. She began her career as a murderess in Peter Jackson’s Heavenly Creatures (1994) when she was 16 years old. Her recent series Yellowjacketsis a psychological drama that again makes her suitable for representing the depressed Betty Gore in the miniseries Candy. She presented her sympathies in an interview with help-seeking Betty, who went through post-partum depression. Her silence has particularly affected the actor, and she asserts the importance of being conversational regarding personal mental health.
Jason Ritter, the spouse of Melanie Lynskey, has also played a cameo and has played the role of Deputy Denny Reese. He is the partner of Deputy Steve Defibaugh. The actor was nominated for Grammy for the role of Mark Cyr in NBC’s series Parenthood.
What goes around comes back around!
Well, it does come back, umm… sort of. In an interview, Biel mentioned that because there was a photograph of Timberlake on Christmas with grown moustaches. Then the lack of budget, since they spent most of it on the main cast, led to Timberlake’s casting, which was immediately accepted by the writer Robin Vieth. The moustaches made their way back on our actor’s face, usually always stubble clad. Good for all the moustache lovers among us!
