To prepare for his starring role in the musical Hairspray, Nick Jonas has been taking salsa lessons. “(It) 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."

The Jo Bro will star alongside High School Musical’s Corbin Bleu, Glee’s John Stamos, comedian Drew Carey, and Broadway stars Harvey Fierstein and Marissa Jaret Winokur. Nick said, “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.”

What do you think of Nick starring in Hairspray? Were you hoping for Zac Efron to step into Link Larkin’s shoes onstage like he did in the 2007 movie? Tell us in a comment!
