From Broadway babe
and Jonas bro, to major film and TV star, Nick Jonas
has extended his wide-ranging talents into various fields of entertainment and these days shows no signs of slowing down.
This fall, he'll next tackle life as a "fraternity dude" in the anticipated Fox series Scream Queens
. While co-creator Ryan Murphy
enlisted both Nick and fellow songbird Ariana Grande
to round out the all-star cast
, don't expect the pair to pull a Glee
and break out into song.
"This project is solely acting. None of us are singing," he told ETonline. But while the two will not be lending their killer singing voices on the show, that doesn't completely rule out a future collaboration.
"We wrote a bunch of songs a couple years ago when she first started making her record," he revealed. "We wrote together then and had a great time writing."
He later added, "Maybe there's a collaboration somewhere down the road."
The thought of those two teaming up together on a song blows our minds, as would a Jonas Brothers reunion. But Nick explained, that's just not in the cards for now.
"I'm happy to be doing my own thing," the 22-year-old singer admitted. "We're all kind of happy to be doing our own thing."
Nick and his brothers decided to disband as a group
back in 2013 -- a decision they still stand by. "We chose being a family first and not a band," he added. "Tough decision but it was the right thing for all of us."
The "Jealous" singer has plenty to keep him busy these days. In addition to Scream Queens, he is currently shooting season two of the MMA fighting drama Kingdom and will kick-off the Nick Jonas "Live in Concert" tour in Pennsylvania this September.
"It's been a great year and a half between the music and the acting -- I'm just ready to get out there and play for [the fans] and have some fun," he said.
And if that wasn't enough, he can now add part record label owner
to his growing resume. Just last month, he announced the launch of Safehouse Records, a joint venture with friend and fellow ex-Disney star Demi Lovato
and manager Phil McIntyre
"We felt like it was time for us to set up our own thing and secure that we could create freely and in a safe environment," he said of the artist-centric label.
Nick will release new music via the venture, which will sign artists who will also become part owners.
