Joey Fatone Compares 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2' Role & *N Sync Run: Video Interview

As a member of both *N Sync and the My Big Fat Greek Wedding cast, Joey Fatone has the rare position of being a part of two humongous pop-culture phenomenons: The record-shattering boy band and the highest-grossing romantic comedy of all time. The actor/singer came to Fuse and reflected on the legacy of the huge projects:

"I'm happy and proud as shit! I'm proud. I'm happy to be a part of it. It's something that's definitely my past that I have never been like, 'Oh, I can't talk about that. My Big Fat Greek Wedding? I was so young!" It's cool. Same thing with *N Sync, people are always like 'Can we talk about *N Sync? Is that OK?' Yeah. It was a part of my life and so is Big Fat Greek Wedding."

Fatone adds that the sequel to 2002 hit movie shines a spotlight on more members of the Portokalos family. That includes Cousin Angelo, his reprised role for a character he says he connects with more than ever.

Check out Fatone's commentary above! My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 hits theaters on Friday, March 25; watch the official trailer below:
