Dan Aykroyd has joked about leading his Yogi Bear co-star Justin Timberlake astray.

The actor says it probably wouldn't be wise if they start hanging out together after voicing Yogi Bear and Boo Boo in the film.

"I'd get him in trouble probably, fast motorcycles..." the Blues Brothers star laughed.

"He's the type of guy who wouldn't want to hang with him? He's a brilliant writer, great comedian, I'd love to be his friend but that's his choice," he said.

The 58-year-old was full of praise for Justin.

"What I would say is he's the Tom Hanks of the music business. You know, just the nicest guy and a great American, a great talent," Dan said.

Justin, 29, added that he was relieved when he found out he could record his dialogue with Dan

"We got to record a lot of our sessions together," he revealed.

He went on: "A lot of actors, you end up recording a lot of things by yourself, going in and saying a line a thousand different ways and you don't really know how it's going to turn out. But getting to work with Dan we were able to really build some funny moments between the two animated characters."
