Justin Timberlake Invited to Marine Corps Ball

Jason Kempin/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- First Mila Kunis, now Justin Timberlake. The boy band star-turned-actor has been invited to a Marine Corps Ball.

After Marine Sgt. Scott Moore invited Kunis to the ball via a YouTube video, Kelsey De Santis, a Virginia-based Marine, uploaded her own video asking Timberlake to accompany her to the Marine Corps Ball on Nov. 12 in Washington, D.C.

A representative for Timberlake did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment on whether or not he'll attend. De Santis joked in the video, "If you can't go, all I can say is, cry me a river."

Last week, Moore made headlines with his invitation to Kunis. Kunis and Timberlake star in the upcoming romantic comedy Friends With Benefits.

In an email sent to ABC News this week, Moore said he asked the sexy Black Swan actress to be his date on a dare from his fellow Marines.

Over the weekend, Kunis said yes while doing press for Friends with Benefits with co-star Timberlake. The 20-second video touched Timberlake, who vowed to make it happen when Fox411 asked Kunis about the invite. Then, in a message intended for Moore, Timberlake said, "I'm going to work on this, man. This needs to go down."

Taking a second to confer with her publicist, Kunis agreed. "I'll go. I'll do it for you," she said before asking Timberlake if he was going as well.

"They don't want me. They want you," Timberlake responded. "You need to do it for your country."

Resolved, Kunis confirmed, "I'll do it."

Moore said he got the news from one of his friends back home and his initial reaction was "disbelief." Moore is from Grove City, Pa., and his unit is based in Camp Lejeune, N.C. He said he has also heard from Kunis' "people."

He expressed his gratitude toward Timberlake, whom he called his "wingman."

"It's nice to know he can get over the jealously to help a brother out," he said jokingly before adding, "Justin Timberlake's encouragement definitely helped; I owe him one."

Moore said this year's ball will be special, not just because Kunis is his date, but also because its the 236th birthday of the Marine Corps and his unit will be home from Afghanistan. As for any special plans he has in store for Kunis, "I think I'll keep that a secret for now; we have to iron out the details."

But in terms of what she can expect, he quoted Eleanor Roosevelt: "The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!

Mila Kunis Accepts Marine's Invite to Ball

ABC/A.M.P.A.S.(LOS ANGELES) -- One lucky Marine in Afghanistan is shouting "Hoorah" right about now.

That's because Mila Kunis, the sexy Black Swan actress, has accepted Marine Sgt. Scott Moore's invitation to be his date to the Marine Corps Ball in November.

The actress said yes over the weekend, while doing press for her upcoming film, Friends with Benefits, with co-star Justin Timberlake.

Last week, Moore, from the 3rd Battalion 2nd Marines in Musa Qala, Afghanistan, set up a YouTube page called "Go With Me Mila" and posted a video asking the 27-year-old starlet to accompany him to the ball on Nov. 18 in Greenville, N.C.

"Hey Mila, Sgt. Moore, but you can call me Scotty," the sergeant said in uniform and dark sunglasses outside his bunker in Afghanistan. "I just want to take a moment out of my day to invite you to the Marine Corps Ball with yours truly. So take a second to think about it and get back to me. All right, bye now."

The 20-second video touched Timberlake, who vowed to make it happen when Fox411 asked Kunis about the invite.

"Have you seen this? Have you heard about this? You need to do it for your country," Timberlake asked Kunis.

Then, in a message intended for Moore, Timberlake said, "I'm going to work on this, man. This needs to go down."

Taking a second to confer with her publicist, Kunis agreed. "I'll go. I'll do it for you," she said before asking Timberlake if he was going as well.

"They don't want me! They want you," Timberlake responded. "You need to do it for your country."

Resolved, Kunis confirmed, "I'll do it."

ABC News did not get an immediate response from Kunis' rep. Nor did Moore respond immediately to emails.

A lot of folks were cheering the Marine on his YouTube page Monday. "Ha! She said yes! Lucky sucker! Congrats man!" one person wrote.

Like a lot of other people, that person may have been wishing he had come up with Moore's idea sooner.
