12 – Best Buy Bobblehead announced: Fame and success have finally gone to ‘NSYNC’s heads. Their noggins are so inflated that they can barely hold them up, as if their necks are only flimsy metal springs… oh wait, their necks really are flimsy metal springs. While the real Justin, JC, Lance, Chris and Joey are still perfectly proportional, their bobbleheaded doppelgangers, available from Best Buy outlets beginning November 24, depict the group with oversized melons to match their extra-large bank accounts. A different bobblehead doll – one for each member – will be available each week, starting with JC Chasez, according to a Best Buy spokesperson. Other figurines will become available each successive Saturday, with Lance Bass arriving December 2; Joey Fatone, December 9; Justin Timberlake, December 16; and Chris Kirkpatrick, December 23. The limited-edition dolls sell for $9.99 with a minimum $25 purchase, and each comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity. Best Buy will donate $1 million in proceeds from the sale of the dolls to September 11 New York relief efforts through its Best Buy Children’s Foundation.

21 – Justin Timberlake To Play Young Elton In New Clip: The ‘NSYNC hottie takes on the role of a younger version of Elton in the piano man’s new video for “This Train Don’t Stop There Any More.” The ’70s-inspired clip is centered on Justin backstage at a concert venue as he performs the song while making his way from the dressing room to the stage. Paul Reubens, the artist formerly known as Pee-wee Herman, also turns up in the video, as the young Elton’s manager. This odd assortment of characters gathered in Los Angeles last weekend to shoot the video under the guidance of director David LaChapelle. A spokesperson for LaChapelle said that Timberlake was the first choice for the role, and that he jumped at the chance to act in the video.
