Crazy Confession: James Van Der Beek Snuck Justin Timberlake Into Vegas Club in the 90s

Pin It

How about a throwback story of epic proportions? When worlds collided back in the day between James Van Der Beek and Justin Timberlake...and JT used James' ID to get into a Vegas club? Yeah. Epic.

Back up the time machine and let's try and wrap our heads around this one, as James spilled the beans about the crazy encounter during a sitdown with HuffPost Live.

You know that expression "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas"? While James could have kept this info securely in the vault for all time, he decided to squeal some of the specifics, saying, "I was in Vegas one New Year's and somebody came by and said, '*NSYNC wants to meet you guys' and at the time, *NSYNC was the second to Backstreet Boys, it was before they had blown up."

He continued, "So, I said, 'OK.' And they were so sweet, they were so nice. They were such cool kids and I immediately liked them. I remember that night, we were all going to some club and they were all too young. And so I went in and then somehow passed my I.D. back so that Justin could get in with my I.D. And then Justin used it to get in and then tried to pass it off so Lance could get in. By the third time [the bouncers] saw a James Van Der Beek I.D., they were like, 'Ah, I don't think so James.'"

So it worked for JT, but not for Lance? Tough break.
