From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

James Lance Bass (born May 4, 1979 in Laurel, Mississippi) is the bass singer for the American pop group *NSYNC. He began his musical career in the seventh grade in the school chorus. He later joined Mississippi Show Stoppers, a state-wide group sponsored by the Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Museum. He joined Mickey Mouse Club alumni JC Chasez and Justin Timberlake in *NSYNC, a boy band turned overnight sensation. Lance is considered the 'quiet one' of the group.

Bass starred in the 2001 motion picture On the Line, which grossed only $4.3 million at the US domestic box office, but had a production budget of $16 million. The film was produced by Bacon & Eggs LLC (formerly A Happy Place), a company owned by Bass, which is currently producing a new film entitled Lovewrecked.

In addition, Bass formed a music management company called Free Lance Entertainment, which is now defunct.

In August of 2002, Bass entered cosmonaut training at Star City in Russia. He was scheduled to fly into space on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft in October of that year with the mission Soyuz TMA-1. However, his sponsorship funds failed to materialize. He still hopes to fly by 2005.

In 2003, Bass slammed American Idol for being too "cheesy" and too commercial.

In October of 2004 during World Space Week, Bass was formally inducted as a member of the National Space Society's Board of Governors. Serving in an advisory and public outreach capacity, Bass has joined astronauts and prominent individuals who have made a lasting, positive impact on human space exploration, including actor Tom Hanks, journalist Hugh Downs and futurist Sir Arthur C. Clarke, among many others.

Bass was also featured as a voice actor for the video game Kingdom Hearts, voicing Sephiroth.
