The Britney Spears Lifetime Biopic just keeps getting better and better! Though Britney won’t officially air until sometime in 2017, we’ve already gotten a sneak peek at the cast (which includes one ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake (!!!)) and oh, we’re excited, friends.
But that’s not all. People is now revealing that not only will a JT character have a part in the film, his entire former boy band (the recently reunited *NSYNC) will be featured, and guys? The recreation is EPIC.
From Joey Fatone with his uber-‘90s red highlights to Chris Kirkpatrick’s stylin’ braids, the gang’s all “here,” and boy, do they look the part Played by Zac Vran (JC), Matt Visser (Joey), Connor Paton (Lance) and Frank Cena (Chris), looking at this group is like looking at a Tiger Beat from 1998.
We, for one, couldn’t be more pleased, though we can’t say that Britney and co. feel the same — a rep for the songstress has made it VERY clear to Entertainment Weekly that she is so not on board with the project. “[She] will not be contributing in any way, shape or form…nor does it have her blessing.”
Yikes. We love you, Brit-Brit… but we’re still TOTALLY gonna’ watch it.
