Hot on the heels of the news that Topher Grace and Taye Diggs will star in an upcoming film musical entitled One Shot, the production’s added another big name. According to Deadline, *NSYNC veteran JC Chasez has signed on to play a bad guy, the star of the stage musical within the film who sleeps with the ex-girlfriend of Grace’s character, a production manager who has to pull together an eccentric cast and crew for the musical’s opening night.

Earlier this year, Chasez was involved in a real-world musical theater catastrophe when he was cast as Pontius Pilate in an all-star touring production of Jesus Christ Superstar–alongside Destiny’s Child’s Michelle Williams, Incubus’ Brandon Boyd, and punk legend Johnny Rotten–that was canceled just weeks before it was to open.
