Lance Bass has blamed Justin Timberlake's blossoming acting career for hampering a potential 'N Sync reunion - because the superstar is too "busy" to revive the boyband.
The SexyBack hitmaker rose to fame with the pop group in the 1990s, and went on to carve out a hugely successful solo career after the band went their separate ways in 2002.
He is now making a name for himself as an actor, with a role in new movie The Social Network and upcoming appearances in Friends With Benefits and Bad Teacher.
And Bass is convinced any plans to bring 'N Sync back will have to wait until Timberlake's hectic film schedule eases off.
He tells E! Online, "I don't see that coming anytime soon. Justin's very busy with his acting career right now so I think it's going to be quite a while before we even think about doing anything. I love being on the stage. So yeah, anytime the guys would want to do an album, I'm in!"
