Looks like Mila Kunis won't be the only celeb attending a Marine Corps Ball.

Not long after Justin Timberlake convinced his Friends with Benefits co-star to accept a Youtube invite to the ball held in North Carolina, the "SexyBack" crooner received an invite of his own…and he just agreed to take the marine up on her offer (if, you know, his schedule permits). 

"I'll tell you what, I accept," Timberlake said at a Friends With Benefits junket. "But, not because she shouted out one of my songs, which I do love when they do that because I'm shameless, and not because she had all those beefcake military guys behind her to try to intimidate me. I don't get asked out. Ever. So, I was very flattered by that, and I hear that she's trained in martial arts, so I'm hoping we can tussle at some point. But, yeah, if my schedule works out to do it, I'd love to do it. It's an honor."

Corporal Kelsey De Santis, who posted her videotaped plea to Youtube, is the lucky marine Timberlake will accompany to a ball being held in Washington, D.C., if he can make it.

Ironically, before Timberlake received his invite, Kunis jokingly asked him if he would be in attendance at the ball as well, to which Timberlake replied, "They don't want me, they want you! You need to do it for your country."

It's safe to say that at least one marine wanted him there, too.
