Bass to join Broadway cast of 'Hairspray'

Lance Bass, former member of 'N Sync and a Pine Belt native, will join the Broadway cast of "Hairspray" next month.

A spokesman for the show, Richard Kornberg, says Bass will sign on August 14th. Kornberg says Bass will portray TV dance show host Corny Collins, a role modeled after legendary Baltimore disc jockey Buddy Deane.

The long-running musical, which opened in 2002 at the Neil Simon Theatre, is based on John Waters' cult film set in 1960s Baltimore.
