Nick Jonas will be a guest star on NBC’s upcoming drama, Smash.
The 19-year-old actor/musician will play Lyle West, a hot sitcom star who started his career as a child actor in a Broadway show written by Tom (Christian Borle) and directed by Derek (Jack Davenport).
Smash follows an out-of-town tryout of a Broadway musical, and centers around a songwriting team (Debra Messing, Borle) who write a musical about Marilyn Monroe based on an offhanded remark. They post a showstopping number on YouTube.
When it’s a viral hit, a producer (Anjelica Huston) who’s looking to recapture success long past decides to produce the musical and there are two choices to play Marilyn: Karen (Katharine McPhee), a talented young newcomer, and Ivy (Megan Hilty), a theater veteran.
Smash debuts in February on NBC.
