A casting news comes straight from the horse's mouth, Joe Jonas is working with Tom Hanks on a TV show. During a backstage interview with Ryan Seacrest's reporter at "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam" tour, Joe revealed that he was coming out of a studio to work on the secret project, not on his solo album.
"That day you spotted me, I saw the photo [of me leaving the recording studio]. I was actually doing something with Tom Hanks that day. A little bit of a different studio something," he revealed. "He's working on a new TV show, so you'll see that pretty soon, and he asked me to be a part of it."
Joe is indeed in the middle of expanding his acting resume. Beside having his own show "JONAS L.A." on Disney Channel, the Jonas Brothers star was a guest on "Hot in Cleveland" and will appear in an upcoming episode of "90210". He almost landed a role on "Brothers & Sisters" but due to scheduling conflict, he had to pull out.
As for the extent of "JONAS L.A.", Joe admitted to not knowing whether there would be another season. "We're keeping it open until people let us know," he said in the interview. "We've got lots of other stuff going for us right now, but we'll keep you guys updated."
Tom Hanks, who frequently works for HBO, recently produced the miniseries "The Pacific" which eventually won big at the 61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
