Seriously, talk about a ’90s flashback. ‘Dead 7’ doesn’t only feature members of the Backstreet Boys and N’SYNC, it now features Erik-Michael from O-Town! And everyone’s posting pics!
We were excited to see AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, and Nick Carter join forces with Joey Fatone — but now, we’ve got O-Town‘s own, Erik-Michael Estrada joining Syfy’s new TV movie, Dead 7. Nick said that he wanted some ’90s-music folk in the movie, and it looks like he got his wish. And we got ours from these amazing photos.
An extra in the film posted a photo to Instagram (seen above) featuring all the guys! “Hanging with #thebackstreetboys #nsync and #otown . #zombie #movieextra #movie #dead7,” she wrote. Yes. Yes. Yes! Plus, we did some looking around to see that Jacob Underwood and Trevor Penick, also from O-Town joined too! And yes that’s 98 Degrees‘ Jeff Timmons there, too!
Nick, who’s writing and starring in the film, told Rolling Stone he had a wish list of people he wanted . “I want it to be musically based. I might reach out to Jordan [Knight] from the New Kids on the Block,” he said. Well, no word from Jordan yet, but there could be more. “Nick’s vision is to bring some other people in that genre that have never really done a lot of film but that were in music in the Nineties and 2000s,” Joey Fatone added.
AJ Shares Tons Of Makeover Pics
AJ, who plays the villain in the film, has been super vocal on social media, as his character “Johnny V.”
In his latest photo, he’s seen picking his teeth, in full costume. Here’s the caption: “Got something in my tooth…. Nevermind it’s just flesh am a little bone! Must be leftover from that zombie I just made out with! Oh yeah I’m not effected by zombie blood on account I shoot up zombie blood for a while now so I’m immune to the virus! I guess I just love to play with my toys and have no remorse over it. I have to say “if it ain’t dead it ain’t worth it!” ……..Johnny vermillion! Ps make sure to lock your doors and watch over you children! Johnny don’t discriminate so if u gotta pulse your well, edible ! Goodnight all. Going back to sleep. -JV”
Nick’s wife, Lauren also stars in the film and she shared a picture of her transformation, so basically, we can’t wait to see this movie. Are you excited, HollywoodLifersl
