Timberlake-Woods. Sounds like a subdivision full of McMansions, but it's actually Justin Timberlake's latest collaboration. After his breakup with *NSYNC, his fling with Britney (two husbands ago) and his wardrobe malfunction with Janet Jackson, Justin has a new co-star -- Tiger Woods.

In the new Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005 videogame, Timberlake appears as a scar-faced tough guy pimped out as "The Hustler" and as some guy just named "Justin" who dances when he gets a hole in one.

Besides the videogame, Tiger and Justin have more in common than you may think. Check out our scorecard.
