Smash, Bernadette Peters, Nick Jonas


A Jonas Brother and a Tony Award winner? NBC is really pulling out the big and oh-so-dreamy musical guns for Smash.

The peacock network announced today that Nick Jonas and two-time Tony winner Bernadette Peters will be guest starring in their new musical drama Smash, which is a show we're totally obsessed with after seeing the pilot and we know you guys will be, too. You want details on their roles? You got it…

Jonas will play Lyle West, a child actor turned sitcom star who got his start on Broadway. If he's anything like his character on Mr. Sunshine (remember that show? Ahh, memories.), then he'll be a complete diva and we will love every minute of it. The timing is perfect, as Jonas will be in New York earlier next year taking over Darren Criss' Broadway duties in How to Success in Business Without Really Trying, who is taking over for Daniel Radcliffe.

Peters will guest star as Leigh Conroy, Ivy's (Megan Hilty) Tony-award winning mother who turns into a total stage parent, living vicariously through her daughter. Not at all shockingly, both Jonas and Peters will sing on the show.

Smash, which stars Debra Messing, Katharine McPhee, Anjelica Huston and Jack Davenport, premieres Feb. 6 on NBC.
