Lance Bass to Join The Broadway Cast of Hairspray

He's performed in the most successful boyband of all time. He tried to get himself into outer space. He came out of the closet on the cover of People magazine. So what's next for Lance Bass? Broadway, of course!

The erstwhile member of 'nsync will be joining the cast of Broadway's Hairspray beginning August 14th. He will be playing Corny Collins in the musical, who is the host of the dance tv show Tracy Turnblad is trying to integrate. Also in the cast are Leave it to Beaver's Jerry Mathers (Wilbur), singers Darlene Love (Motormouth Maybelle) and Tevin Campbell (Seaweed), and fellow boybander, former O-Town member Ashley Parker Angel (Link Larkin).

Of course, the film version of Hairspray, starring John Travolta, Michelle Pfeiffer, and the too-adorable-for-words Zac Efron, hits theaters later this month.
