Clint Eastwood’s film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Jersey Boys will hit theaters nationwide on June 20th.




If you're not familiar, the story — which has been running on Broadway for eight years — follows young Frankie Valli and his melodic cronies from the slums of New Jersey to international stardom in the 1960s rock group The Four Seasons.

John Lloyd Young will reprise his Tony Award-winning role as Valli. Michael Lomenda and Villanova grad Vincent Piazza will star as group members Nick Massi and Tommy DeVito, and Erich Bergen will portray Bob Gaudio, the man who penned all of the group's biggest songs. Oscar winner Christopher Walken will play mobster Gyp DeCarlo. The film will be distributed by Warner Brothers.
