Multifaceted entertainer Justin Timberlake is coming to Harvard University to be honored as the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year.

The Grammy and Emmy award winner will receive his pudding pot from the nation's oldest undergraduate drama troupe at a roast scheduled for Friday.

Hasty Pudding Theatricals said the singer, songwriter, actor and producer was selected because he's "one of pop culture's most influential entertainers."

Timberlake is one of the stars of the upcoming movie "The Social Network." The movie expected to be released later this year is about the early days of the Facebook social networking site - set at Harvard.

Actress Anne Hathaway was honored as Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year last week.
