Joey Fatone To Play Lounge Singer In 'Cool' New Flick

'The Cooler' also stars William H. Macy, Alec Baldwin, Maria Bello.

While 'NSYNC are lying low, Joey Fatone has been rolling the dice with his acting career. Fatone, who made his most recent onscreen appearance in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," is set to appear next in "The Cooler," a movie about casino life in Las Vegas.

According to a spokesperson for Lions Gate Films, the flick, which also stars William H. Macy, Alec Baldwin, Maria Bello and Estella Warren, tells the story of a gambler so unlucky that his bad fortune rubs off on anyone near him. One of the last mob-run casinos in Vegas decides to use him to "cool off" their hottest winners, but to the casino's chagrin, things heat back up when he meets his lady luck in the form of a cocktail waitress.

Fatone will play a lounge singer named Johnny Cappella, who has his own ideas about how things should be done. The film will hit theaters in November.
