    Had anyone here previously heard of this rumor???:

    "At first, it appeared the 'N Sync (news - web sites) news was just another twisted rumor--conjured up by the same Star Wars geeks who have claimed that Celine Dion is singing the theme for Attack of the Clones and that Van Halen planned to record an instrumental score for the film."

    (5150EDU: Yeah, yeah, I know this is a rumor, but since it appeared on E! Online, I decided to post it here in Main VH Discussion)

    Jar, Jar, Jar: 'N Sync's "Clones" Cameo
    At last, someone has stepped in to replace Jar Jar Binks as the target of derision from Star Wars fans the world over.

    Brace yourselves: The boys of 'N Sync will have a cameo in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode II--Attack of the Clones. A Lucasfilm spokeswoman confirmed what Star Wars fan sites had been buzzing about for days, saying the fivesome will appear briefly in a "big scene."

    (Breathe, people, breathe.)

    There are two different stories as to how this shocking development occurred. The New York Post reports that George Lucas' adopted daughters, Amanda and Katie, are huge fans of the popster supergroup, so he cast the boys as Jedi knights. The Post says they appear in the background of the film's climactic battle scene, before getting blown up by "battle droids."

    Lucasfilm rep Lynn Hale, however, says that, while Lucas' daughters are big fans, "that didn't have anything to do with it." Hale says Justin, Lance, Joey, JC and Chris were big Star Wars fans, so they asked producer Rick McCallum if they could appear in the latest installment.

    McCallum apparently found a spot for them, in "a big scene with lots of extras." But Hale says they have no dialogue, and they won't even be credited as extras when the film hits theaters May 16.

    Still, the mere blip of an appearance by the Pop stars has set off a firestorm of talk on Star Wars Internet message boards.

    "Please no. George, no. Please. Anything but the boy bands. Please," wrote one fan in a discussion on Star Wars news Website TheForce.Net. "Jar Jar I could handle. Not this."

    Other fans, however, were actually willing to give Lucas the benefit of the doubt--assuming that any cameo with the 'N Syncers would be so brief that they wouldn't even be noticeable.

    "If they're just in the background, I don't see what it would matter," writes another fan, known as Silac5. "Now, if they were to start having synchronized lightsaber battles and spontaneously bust out in song, then I would have to walk out of the theater."

    At first, it appeared the 'N Sync (news - web sites) news was just another twisted rumor--conjured up by the same Star Wars geeks who have claimed that Celine Dion is singing the theme for Attack of the Clones and that Van Halen planned to record an instrumental score for the film.

    This time, the rumor turned out to be true, and Lucasfilm confirmed it after tabloids in London and New York published stories on the cameos. Truth, it seems, is stranger than fiction

    unless John Williams dies, i can't see anyone else doing Star Wars music. and after four movies without any "pop" music, i wouldn't bet on number 5 having any, either.

    If N'Sync is in the background where you can't see them and not credit them, well that's fine by me. If they had speaking roles, then I'd be pissed.

    As for Van Halen doing the score, I doubt that would happen as long as John Williams is around. Maybe Eddie will play some background music here or there. That would be cool.

    Well, apparently, that's what happens in the final battle of the movie. They get blown apart by super battle droids (bigger and badder than their skinny counterparts in the Phantom Menace).

    I think I'd pay a year's salary to see N'Sync get blown up by battle droids. It's one of the few times I'd root for the bad guys in a Star Wars movie. [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img]
    Q: Recording the album took so long your Australian tour last year was cancelled. What was it like in the studio? There's a history of tension between you and Eddie Van Halen...

    DLR: It was like a stand off in a Chuck Norris movie. We each had the laser dot on everybody's forehead waiting for the other guy to blink. Except for Wolfie, he had a Super Soaker ...
