Nick Jonas Guests On ‘Smash’: Watch A Preview

Nick Jonas has clearly become a welcome part of the Broadway community, as the How To Succeed actor has scored a guest appearance on next week’s episode of Smash. Jonas will play Lyle West, a TV star who got his start as a child actor on Broadway. (Hmm, sound familiar?) Jump below to watch Nick meet the show-within-a-show’s Marilyn Monroe, Megan Hilty (at least until the inevitable switcheroo and the role goes to Katharine McPhee), as well as perform Michael Buble’s “Haven’t Met You Yet.”

When Nick (as Lyle) hits on Ivy at a party, Derek responds, “This is very precocious behavior coming from a 15-year-old.” To which Lyle says, “I’m actually 12. And precocious would be showing you the bedrooms.”

Wait, is 19-year-old Nick Jonas actually playing a 12-year-old? Was that sarcasm? We don’t even buy him as a 15-year-old. Let’s hope the full episode clears this one up.
