Lance Bass -- King of Corny

From pop star to wannabe astronaut to ... Broadway actor? Lance Bass has found a new home on the Great White Way.

The former *NSYNCer performed his first "real" show with the cast of Hairspray last night, stepping into the shoes of cheesy TV host Corny Collins for his stint on the Great White Way. TMZ was outside the theater on Tuesday when Bass came out to sign autographs for the huge crowd waiting with programs.

Lance performed twice with the cast last week, but considered them practice runs where he could flub lines and have "do overs." The audience must have loved that!
