Nick Jonas Returns To The Stage By Replacing Daniel Radcliffe [PHOTO]
Daniel Radcliffe, who opened the role in March, is handing the role of J. Pierrepont Finch to the 19-year-old who will debut his performance on January 24 until July 1. Before his start, however, Darren Criss who plays Kurt Hummel’s love interest on Glee will shine in the spotlight by playing the character for three weeks, from January 3 to January 22.
In order for Jonas to get inside the head of his character, he hopes to meet Radcliffe to do his own research: “He’s an incredible actor and he’s doing such a great job with the show, so it will be cool to sit down with him and pick his brain.” We hope not literally, but no matter what, Jonas’s talent will shine through his performance that audiences will love and appreciate.
Who knew the youngest Jonas brother was a born-to-be Broadway superstar? The curly-headed cutie is not a stranger to theater. He has actually starred in many theatrical shows including “Annie Get Your Gun,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Les Miserables,” and “A Christmas Carol.” More recently, he starred as Kurt in “The Sound of Music” and was also in “Hairspray.”
