Nick Jonas, who is show-less after "JONAS L.A." was canceled last year, would be a guest on Matthew Perry's brand new sitcom "Mr. Sunshine". Photos from the episode have been released, showing Nick interacting with the main character and carrying guitar as an artist named Eli.
Crystal decides to hold a contest to determine the Employee of the Year, but unbeknownst to the staff, a winner has already been pre-determined. Meanwhile, as Ben contends with catering to the needs of Eli, he must also keep the rest of the employees from being distracted by the fake contest and get the arena ready in time for Eli's performance.
"Mr. Sunshine" revolves around Perry's Ben Donovan who is a self-involved manager of a second-rate San Diego sports arena. The venue often caters for various events, including music concerts. "In the first 12 episodes, we've had dog shows and BMX shows and concerts. I thought it was a good opportunity to have some interesting guest stars come through. We've already had Jimmy Conners, Nick Jonas and James Taylor, believe it or not," Matthew Perry told EW.
The pilot would air as part of ABC's Wednesday laugh on February 9 while Jonas' episode would air February 16 under the title "Employee of the Year".
