Exclusive: Last Man Standing Makes Nick Jonas a Deadbeat Dad

Nick Jonas is ditching his squeaky-clean persona on ABC’s Last Man Standing.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the pop star has booked a guest appearance on the freshman comedy playing Ryan, the oft-mentioned deadbeat dad of Mike’s (Tim Allen) young grandson.

The hard-to-like character’s surprise appearance in Last Man‘s Christmas-themed episode challenges Mike to suppress his inner-Scrooge and forgive the young man for his past mistakes.

Jonas — who last season guest starred in an episode of Matthew Perry’s short-lived Mr. Sunshine — most recently starred alongside brothers Joe and Kevin on Disney’s Jonas.
