Actor James Van Der Beek helped Justin Timberlake sneak into a nightclub when he was underage by lending him his ID.

The “Dawson’s Creek” star met the pop singer when he was a member of boyband ‘NSync back in the 1990s, and they teamed up for a night out in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve.

Van Der Beek reveals Timberlake, who is four years his junior, was too young to go clubbing, so he gave him his ID to get him past the bouncers.

In a web chat on Huffingtonpost.com, the 37-year-old actor reveals, “I was in Vegas one New Year’s and somebody came by and said, ‘N Sync wants to meet you!’… So, I said, ‘OK.’ And I met them and they were so sweet. They were so nice. They were such cool kids and I immediately liked them. I remember that night, we were all going to some club and they were all too young. And so I went in and somehow passed my ID back so that Justin could get in with my ID. Justin used it to get in.”

However, the plan failed when Timberlake tried to use the same card to sneak his bandmate Lance Bass into the club.

Van Der Beek adds, “(Timberlake) then tried to pass it off to (Bass) to get in. By the third time (the bouncers) saw a James Van Der Beek ID, they were like, ‘Ah, I don’t think so, James.’”
