Millennial Teen Pop update: Christina’s down for “Mickey Mouse Club” reunion, Joey Fatone gets a new job

First, Christina Aguilera says that she’d be interested in a Mickey Mouse Club reunion.  As you may recall, as kids, Christina, Britney, Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling, Keri Russell and JC Chasez were among the stars of Disney’s All-New Mickey Mouse Club.

Asked by Entertainment Tonight if she’d be interested in a reboot of the show, Christina said, “An actual reboot? I don’t know, you’d have to check everybody’s schedules because we gotta be on the same page.”

But, Christina added, “I love those guys, I mean, are you kidding me? The casting agent was a genius back then to get all of us together. Ryan Gosling, Justin, Britney, me, Keri Russell…it was just such a talented and special magic in the air. We definitely need some kind of a reunion at some point.  So yeah!”

In July, Britney told ET that if there were to be a MMC reunion, “I would definitely show up. I would go, definitely.”

Meanwhile, *NSYNC’s Joey Fatone has landed a new gig. He’ll be the host of Common Knowledge, a new game show debuting January 14 on the Game Show Network. 

Common Knowledge challenges two teams of three to answer everyday questions that you’ld think everyone would know, like “What should you do when you have a fever?” or “How can you tell when a watermelon is ripe?”  The winning team gets $10,000.

Joey was also the announcer for Family Feud from 2010-2015 and has also hosted NBC’s The Singing Bee, The Food Network’s Rewrapped and the Live Well Network’s cooking show My Family Recipe Rocks.
