The turn of the 21st century was a peak time for boy bands, as well as the niche film trope of identity swapping (1998's The Parent Trap remake, anyone?) These two concepts collided when Justin Timberlake co-starred in the 2000 film Model Behavior, filmed at the height of his *NSYNC days. The television movie originally aired on ABC, but anyone who came of age at the time may recall its frequent showings on Disney Channel.
Model Behavior stars Maggie Lawson in dual roles as Alex Burroughs and Janine Adams. Alex is the bookish student with fashion aspirations, while Janine is a rising model with an overbearing momager (played by Kathie Lee Gifford) -- and each person has the life that the other wants. As fate would have it, the pair meet and discover that they look nearly identical. They decide to pull a switcheroo and try out each other’s respective lifestyles.
Enter JT, then just 19 years old, as the teen heartthrob and model, Jason Sharpe. He is Janine’s love interest -- as a stunt orchestrated by his publicist, of course. Although Jason is supposed to be a bad boy in the headlines, a curly haired Timberlake is as sweet as can be when he takes Alex-as-Janine on a date to a fancy restaurant.
