JC Chasez returned to his old stomping ground recently to mentor the current six “Club Mickey Mouse” Mouseketeers.
Chasez was a member of the famous 1990s Mickey Mouse Club, which included Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Ryan Gosling, and Christina Aguilera. So, obviously the current Mouseketeers were more than thrilled to welcome the *NSYNC favourite into their group.
The singer joined the crew for a back-to-school special, with them sitting down and chatting about all things dance, music and acting related.
The Mouseketeers also asked Chasez who his favourite member of the club was, with him saying it was probably Justin [Timberlake], despite all of them now being lifelong friends.

Chasez also spoke to Entertainment Weekly about putting those mouse ears back on, with him insisting “it was an automatic yes.”
“Basically, it just boiled down to a phone call. We knew when the new Mouse Club had come out but my manager called and said, ‘Hey, they would love to have you pop in and do a piece with them.’ I was more than happy to do it.”
He added of his own experience in the club: “Personally, I have to say, it’s one of the greatest experiences of my life. When you’re a young teenager, you’re still trying to find yourself and find your footing in the world.
“Because I was a part of this show, it gave me the opportunity to meet other people that were like-minded, who had dreams and aspirations outside of their hometowns. It made me more comfortable with myself and who I was in that moment.
“Professionally, I couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to be around. Not only was I surrounded by talented cast members but the people that Disney put in place around us to really help us be better and get better and grow as artists, it was incredible. It was a wonderful learning experience.”
