Fatone: My Theatre Acting Got Me Fame Gig

'N SYNC star JOEY FATONE credits his efforts in the theatre world for landing him a hot new TV hosting job.

The POP singer, 26, who recently appeared in the hit Broadway production RENT, has been picked to host talent search show FAME, which premieres tomorrow (28MAY03).

The show, which features choreographer and original Fame star DEBBIE ALLEN, will allow the American public to choose which multi-talented performers aged 17-27 will get a shot at stardom.

But Fatone, who believes his pop star status had nothing to do with his selection for the show, declares, "I think the fact that I have a background in musical theatre and now that I have a Broadway show under my belt might be what prompted them to ask me to host the show."
