A few casting updates for Broadway have been announced today. The first should make fans of the boy band The Jonas Brothers very happy. It has been announced that Nick Jonas will be joining the cast of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying in 2012. The 19 year old singer, who previously appeared on Broadway as Gavroche in Les Miserables many years ago as a replacement, as well as in Beauty and the Beast and Annie Get Your Gun, will be taking over the lead role of J. Pierpont Finch after Darren Criss departs the show. In other casting news, it has been announced that Ruben Santiago-Hudson, a Tony-winner for his supporting performance in August Wilson's Seven Guitars, will be joining the cast of Stick Fly along with Dule Hill and Tracie Thoms. That production is being produced by Alicia Keys.
