BOYS TO MEN ‘N Sync may have to bear the dubious brand of ”boy band,” but two of its members, Joey Fatone and Lance Bass, are acting pretty manly as far as we’re concerned. The two had planned to celebrate their feature debuts in the $10 million romantic comedy ”On the Line,” scheduled to open Oct. 26, with a mega-premiere at Radio City Music Hall. While plans were scrapped in the wake of the terrorist attacks, the screening, although downscaled slightly, will be staying in Manhattan. ”The consensus is it’s not fair or appropriate to ask the police department to provide the kind of security [necessary at Radio City] when they’ve got better things to do,” says producer Rich Hull (”Get Over It”), who along with Miramax rallied to keep the fete in New York despite understandable anxiety. The premiere will be held Oct. 9 at the Ziegfeld Theatre.
