Lance Bass, a member of the multi-platinum boy band 'N Sync, will make his acting debut as a romantic leading man on WB's highest-rated show, "7th Heaven" at 8 p.m. Monday on Channel 49.
This episode marks the first time that any member of 'N Sync has appeared individually as a guest star in a television series.
In the episode entitled "Who Do You Trust?" Eric (Stephen Collins) and Annie (Catherine Hicks) reluctantly allow Mary (Jessica Biel) to go out with Robbie (guest star Adam LaVorgna), on the condition that they double-date with his younger brother Rick (Bass) and Lucy (Beverley Mitchell).
Lucy reluctantly accepts this arrangement and is pleasantly surprised with her hot, blind date until they get caught in a compromising position.
Lance Bass, along with JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and Justin Timberlake make up the band 'N Sync, which has currently sold over 9 million records and topped the charts with the songs "Tearing Up My Heart," "I Want You Back" and "God Must Have Spent a Little More Time on You."
The band is nominated for three Grammys, including one for their latest hit collaboration with Gloria Estefan, "Music of My Heart." 'N Sync recently debuted their new single, "Bye, Bye, Bye," from their forthcoming album from Jive Records, "No Strings Attached."
"7th Heaven," the contemporary family drama about a minister, his wife and their seven children who share love, life and laughter, comes from Spelling Television, Inc., and is currently in its fourth season.
