Would Scream Queens’ Nick Jonas Do Another Ryan Murphy Show? Here's What He Told Us

Nick Jonas as Boone in Scream Queens

For avid TV fans, it's no secret that Ryan Murphy is running an empire on the silver screen. He's got a ton of anthology series happening over at FX, in addition to his past work on shows like Nip/Tuck, Glee, and Scream Queens. The latter was on for just two season before it was cancelled by FOX, but the first season in particular is still applauded for its strange mix of camp, humor, and horror.

Actor/singer Nick Jonas had a great part as the role of Boone in Season 1 of the series, and I recently had the chance to interview him about his mysterious role in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. When I asked Jonas if he'd like to be involved in one of Ryan Murphy's myriad TV projects in the future he said,

Yeah, I loved working with him and his whole team. If there's another project that makes sense I'd be down. Scream Queens was a lot of fun. I get stopped (on the street) more about that than a lot of things. I think there was a real sort of love for that first season. So if there's another show Ryan wants me to be apart of, I'm down.

It looks like Nick Jonas is ready to jump into one of Ryan Murphy's other shows, and there's quite a few to chose from. So get psyched Jonas fans, because all that's missing is the right project and role for Nick to show back up on the small screen.

While we discussed his role in Scream Queens, I mentioned how Nick Jonas seems like he would have been the perfect choice for the upcoming Season of American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace. He seems like he would have fit right in among the likes of Darren Criss and Max Greenfield, although his busy schedule likely prevented him from working on the project. But in addition to ACS, Ryan Murphy also is constantly producing new seasons of American Horror Story and Feud, so being in the Murphy family certainly has its perks.

In addition to his thriving music career, Nick Jonas has been doing a ton of acting as of late. After his one season stint on Scream Queens, he took a series regular role in Kingdom on the Audience Network. In the film world, Jonas has Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Chaos Walking to look forward to, in addition to previous roles in Goat, Careful What You Wish For, and the Camp Rock movies.

You can catch Nick Jonas in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle starting on December 20th, going against holiday blockbusters like Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In the meantime, you can catch his Scream Queens appearance streaming on Netflix.
