Nick Jonas Joins Fox's Scream Queens

Nick Jonas Scream Queens

Nick Jonas has a right to be hellish, and he’s about to put it to good use.

The “Jealous” singer has joined the cast of Scream Queens, Fox’s upcoming horror-comedy from American Horror Story producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, the network announced Monday.

Details about Jonas’ recurring character aren’t currently available, but he joins a cast that already includes Glee darling Lea Michele, True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello and AHS vet Emma Roberts, to name a few.

Scream Queens‘ 15-episode first season, set to debut this fall, revolves around a college campus that is rocked by a series of murders.

In addition to a starring role on Kingdom, DirecTV’s Mixed Martial Arts drama, Jonas’ recent TV credits include roles on Hawaii Five-0 and Smash.

The Hollywood Reporter was first to report the news of Jonas’ casting.

    With this cast (Nick Jonas, Ariana Grande, Lea Michele), is there going to be a musical element? Obviously they can all hold their own without singing, but Ryan Murphy sure loves a musical number.

  3. Ian says:

    My God, could the casting in Ryan Murphy shows get any more desperate?

    Seems like Fox is really insisting on the bankability and fan bases of all these stars after how slow and embarrassing a death Glee is dying.

    Calling it now: Ariana and Nick are the ‘opening kills’ (a la Casey and Steve in “Scream”)

    • James says:

      I’m sure Ariana is the opening kill. But I’m betting on Nick to stick around for a few episodes. And yes, this sounds too similar to Scream, which makes me wonder if this project is going to affect the Scream TV series…

  5. Lindy says:

    I love Nick Jonas, but I cannot stand Ariana Grande. I will give it a go

  6. Marco says:

    I hope that doesn’t mean he’s leaving Kingdom.

    • Jess says:

      He’s hardly going to leave a starring role for a recurring one…Especially one being run by Ryan Murphy. If you’re smart, Ryan Murphy shows are shows you guest star or recur on, not ones you star in…

      • Marco says:

        True that. Still, Ryan Murphy has a lot of clout nowadays, for reasons that keep eluding me since all his series implode when they reach season 3.

  7. Letti says:

    Oh, I don’t like him. But I guess I’ll watch anyway.

  8. Winnie says:

    Rebecca, no! Why:

    “Nick Jonas has a right to be hellish…”

    Just kidding – one could say I’m jealous I didn’t find a way to slip that in conversation.
