Justin Timberlake has officially joined the cast of DreamWorks Animation's new film "Trolls."

He will star alongside Anna Kendrick as two trolls based off those plastic troll dolls with the bright, crazy hair that anyone from the 1990s or earlier grew up with.

So basically, this is the comedic duo we didn't know we needed. Oh, and did we mention it's a comedy musical?

"Sorry, I don't even sing," Anna Kendrick says.

"Shawty, get down. Good lord," she sings.

Yeah, Anna. That's a terrible voice. Just kidding! It'll be the perfect pairing with Timberlake.

"Bring it on down to 'SNL,'" Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon sing at the "Saturday Night Live" 40th Anniversary Special.

Okay, so we know they can sing. But they can also deliver a solid punch line. Kendrick is actually a comedian.

"I mean, I'm hot. But like approachable hot. Like the hottest girl in your improv class hot," she said in a 2014 Super Bowl commercial for New Castle beer.

"You have a lot of glitter on your hat, is that intentional?" she asks in a Kate Spade ad.

But JT has definitely proven he can bring the laughs, too.

"Justin, why are you sneezing?," Jimmy Fallon asked.

"Oh nothing, Jimmy. I'm just allergic to nuts," Timberlake replied.

Plus — and this might be the most important part — they both crush it on the big screen.

"If this is how you behave as a prince, what kind of king will you be?," Kendrick asks in "Into the Woods."

"A million dollars isn't cool. You know what's cool? A billion dollars," Timberlake says in "The Social Network."

And if any of you are still doubting this perfect matchup, remember one thing: Kendrick was actually called a troll in "Pitch Perfect 2."

"You are like a troll," one character says.

"You are physically flawless," Kendrick replies.

Foreshadowing? I think so. "Trolls" hits theaters Nov. 4, 2016.
