*NYSYNC Brings Dirty Pop to Galaxy Far, Far Away

In addition to fame, adoration, unlimited hair care products, and more money than the diety of your choice, boy band membership now includes cameo roles as light-saber-wielding Jedi in "Episode II." Launch.com confirms that the five members of *NYSNC have filmed a scene at the invitation of "Episode II" producer Rick McCallum. However, *NYSYNC fans should curb their squeals of prepubescent joy because there are no guarantees the boys will make the final cut. The scene—rumored to be a big battle between Jedis and droids—might be altered, cut, or digitally morphed to replace *NYSNC with Backstreet.

In other "Episode II" news, a collection of promotional shots has bubbled forth, including a low-resolution piece of hilarity showing Yoda with his boom stick. Pictures of Padme, Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Jango Fett are available in the full collection.
