Nick Jonas is a busy guy these days. Between starring on Broadway as the lead in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” and working on the next Jonas Brothers record , it might not seem like he’d have much time for anything else.
But when Nick stopped by MTV News’ offices recently, he took the time to answer a few of his fans’ burning questions — we got you covered, @sweetwheatie, @holaitstati, @Kay_will_stay and @CrushingOnJonas. They asked everything from what’s next for the JoBro to what his favorite moments are since becoming famous.
Read on for the fun scoop and be sure to click on the video to see/hear what else Jonas had to say!
@sweetwheatie: Does he have any interesting/funny behind-the-scenes moments on #HTSIB?
Nick Jonas: Yes, there have been some funny moments. In my first week, I was still getting comfortable, obviously. On the last show of the week, I completely lost my place in the middle of one of my big lines and, luckily, a castmate helped me out … but I completely lost it.
A couple days later, too, one of the guys, there’s this big dance number and they do this handstand thing, and he basically had so much momentum going forward that he flipped off the stage into the orchestra pit. And I’m up on this top tier supposed to be watching a TV of what’s happening. It was crazy. He was OK, thankfully; it was pretty frightening.
@holaitstati: Now that he is dancing for HTS, will there be more dancing on the next JoBro tour?
Jonas: I was thinking about that the other day. If there was a performance setting, like an award show, and there was a song that we had that lent itself to this kind of dancing. I don’t see myself doing hip-hop dancing, but more theatrical-leaning dancing. I love to dance now, which is an odd thing because I didn’t before. But now I enjoy it.
@Kay_will_stay: Would you ever consider being on “Glee”? If so, what kind of character would you like to portray?
Jonas: Definitely would consider it. I feel like “Smash” is sort of my statement in that [TV] world, and I really enjoyed that experience. And if there was a “Glee” opportunity, I would be really open to it. There hasn’t been yet, and that’s cool. So it’s all a matter if they wanted to have me. I’d be totally open to it.
@CrushingOnJonas: What his Top 3 amazing moments are since he’s been famous?
Jonas: I don’t look at it as becoming famous — the fame side came along with it. I prefer to use the word public life. I think getting to perform with people I really admire has been amazing and to perform for people that I would be star-struck by like the president a few times has been pretty incredible. Performing with Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder, like, those are real highlights. And then getting my fans involved in things I’m passionate about, like diabetes awareness…Those different causes that we can take ownership of and get our followers involved in.
Jonas’ run in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” ends July 1.
