N’Sync Cast in Star Wars Episode II
Rock fans beware, Jar Jar Binks will not be the only character to turn off moviegoers to “Star Wars: Episode II--Attack of the Clones”, it appears that boy group N’Sync have signed on to make a brief appearance in the film.
Lucasfilm confirmed the rumor that members of N’Sync have been asked to be extras in the film. A spokesperson for Lucasfilm told MTV News that the “boys” would make a brief appearance in the film during a "big scene with lots of extras".
Speculation runs rampant as to why N’Sync
was asked to appear in the film. The New York Post says that is was the
daughters of George Lucas who talked daddy into having the “boys” in the
film. However, a Lucasfilm spokesperson told E! Online that it was the
members of the group who approached the film’s producer Rick McCallum requesting
a part in the film since they are big fans of the franchise. The antiMUSIC
guess is that Lucusfilm agreed to have the “boys” in the film to sell movie
tickets to the group’s large fanbase. But will the film be released in
time to cash in on N’Sync’s popularity? Or will the group’s fifteen minutes
run out before then with the film coming out after their fans had said
“Bye Bye Bye” and moved on to the next “big thing”? Time will tell
but until then “May the Farce Be With You”.
