This summer, Nick Jonas will get his thespian on at the Hollywood Bowl in their summer run of Hairspray. Nick's got some experience being in a big, Broadway musical, but in a new interview, he reveals that he is still very nervous taking on the role of Link Larkin and has already started preparing for all the dancing he will be doing alongside Marissa Jaret Winokur. He explains:

"I'm really excited about doing 'Hairspray.' When they approached me about it, I was really blessed ’cause I knew the cast would be amazing. And when I finally saw it, I was really thrilled … It's a great role and I got to get my dance on a little bit, so I'm going to figure that out. I did some salsa dancing; just went out and did some salsa dancing, which was a really fun experience and, I think, kind of got me moving a little bit. So I'm feeling a bit more comfortable than I did before and I'm excited to get out there and do the whole Link Larkin thing."

And do it oh so well, we imagine! They'll be able to hear the tweenage screams all over Hollywood!

We think Nick is going to make an excellent Link, but our hearts will always yearn to see Zac Efron gyrate and jive! Mmmm!
