Nick Jonas Lands the Lead in 'How to Succeed in Business'
The role of J. Pierrepont Finch in the Broadway revival of 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying' is certainly a hot one. Daniel Radcliffe is currently wowing audiences with his portrayal, Darren Criss is set to take over in January and now Nick Jonas will be filling the role in 2012.
According to Playbill, the 18-year-old will start his new gig on January 24 and continue through July 1. After Daniel exits on January 1, Darren will resume the role on January 3 for just three weeks, ending on January 22.
Nick's on-stage resume is pretty stacked. He's been cast in Broadway productions of 'Annie Get Your Gun,' 'Les Miserables' and 'Beauty and the Beast,' and has starred in 'A Christmas Carol' and 'The Sound of Music.' He was cast as Marius in the West End production of 'Les Miserables' last year, and was recently cast as Link Larkin in an L.A. staging of 'Hairspray.'
It's clear that Nick has the chops to play J. Pierrepont Finch. Are you excited for Nick's upcoming Broadway run? Let us know what you think in the comments.
