 Remember them?

Much like NKOTBSB, the early-2000s boy band O-Town is reportedly reuniting -- sans one bleach-blonde California dude. Ashley Parker-Angel said in a statement to TMZ that other plans for his career will force the group to go on tour without him.

"O-Town was one of the greatest chapters of my life, so when the idea of a reunion was brought to me, of course I was intrigued," said the former band-mate. "However I have made the decision not to be a part of an O-Town reunion. It was a difficult decision, but ultimately necessary to move on with the next chapter of my career."

The five-member pop group was the product of 2000 ABC reality show "Making the Band" probably best known for top Billboard hits "All or Nothing" and "Liquid Dreams." O-Town disbanded in 2003, but last Friday former O-Townie Jacob Underwood hinted a get-together on Twitter last Thursday.

"Did someone say O-town reunion?!? [sic]" Underwood teased.

O-Town is reportedly planning concert dates, according to MTV. The blast-from-the-past tour starring Underwood, Erik-Michael Estrada, Trevor Penick and Dan Miller comes after another recent reunion between the Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block. NKOTBSB performed live in Times Square for "Dick Clark's Rockin' New Years Eve" with Ryan Seacrest.

And Parker-Angel's plans? The actor and pop singer just finished a gig in Hairspray and his rep told TMZ he has a feature film coming out later this year. For him, it must be "all, or nothing at all."
