'N Sync's Fatone Looks to Acting

One of the members of ‘N Sync has a new career option if he ever gets tired of music – acting. Joey Fatone has a role in the new film “My Big, Fat Greek Wedding,” and he really enjoyed the experience.

“Obviously ‘N Sync comes first,” Fatone said.

But he wouldn’t mind one day having a lead role in a film. For now, though, he’s happy as a supporting player.

“I’d love to do supporting roles,” he said. “They always seem to be a lot less stressful.”

Fatone and fellow ‘N Sync members may or may not have a part in one of this summer’s biggest movies.

The band members did some work on the new “Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones,” movie, but Fatone’s not sure the footage will make it to the screen.

“I can’t say anything else about it because I don’t even know,” he said. “It’s in the hands of (director) George Lucas.”

He’s pinning his hopes on a small but influential fan.

“George has a daughter, and the daughter loves ‘N Sync, so that’s a good thing,” Fatone said, laughing.
