A Superman fanatic known to legions of fans for his vocalizing with the phenomenally successful boy band 'N Sync, funky-haired Joey Fatone has also attempted to cross over into the acting arena with fellow bandmate Lance Bass in such productions as Longshot (2000) and On the Line (2001).

Born January 28, 1977, in Brooklyn, NY, Fatone graduated from the Orlando, FL, Dr. Phillips High School before taking a job at nearby Universal Studios. Getting his cinematic start as an extra in Joe Dante's Matinee (1993), Fatone has since moved on to more substantial film and entertainment roles and in 2001 took on his most challenging role to date, fatherhood.

Highlights of his filmography include the smash indie comedy My Big Fat Greek Wedding, The Cooler, and Mancation. He also competed on the reality series Dancing With the Stars, and hosted the program The Singing Bee.
