Nick Jonas will set the musical wayback machine to the 1960s for his next gig — playing Frankie Valli in a streaming version of Jersey Boys.
Deadline reports that Nick is set to take the lead in the show, which will be produced by Valli and fellow Four Seasons member Bob Gaudio, who put together the original production. They’ll be joined by the team that created the smash Freddie Mercury bio-pic Bohemian Rhapsody.
The show won’t be too much of a stretch for Nick, who actually hit the Broadway stage long before The Jonas Brothers made it big — playing Tiny Tim in A Christmas Carol way back in 2000.

Salt-N-Pepa’s here, and spilling all the tea on how their new Lifetime biopic came to fruition. It’s called “Salt-N-Pepa,” and follows the story of how Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pepa” Denton transitioned from community college students to the first female rap act to go platinum. Fun fact: the two actually hated their 1987 hit “Push It,” when they first heard it. “Salt-N-Pepa” premieres January 23rd on Lifetime.

Justin Bieber endorsed a desk chair on ‘Shark Tank.’ The singer made a surprise appearance on the hit ABC show via a pre-recorded tape. The 26-year-old raves about the ALL33, which is going for $799. In the end, not even the Biebs could close the deal. All the Sharks passed on the pitch.
