Chelsea Staub Twitter picture. Sun Times said JONAS is better than Hannah Montana. All the conditions are right for a breakout Disney show starring a trio
of dangerously attractive brothers. Nick, the youngest at 16, was just photographed lunching with his ex Miley Cyrus.
Flat-ironed Joe, 19, already has cut a swath through young Hollywood, dumping Taylor Swift for Camilla Belle. Even paparazzi magnet John Mayer is doing his part, romancing Scheana Marie, who plays a fantasy pizza delivery girl. Then there’s the ‘Jonas Brothers World Tour,’ which kicks off in June.
All ‘JONAS’ really has to do is be better than the hammy ‘Hannah Montana’,
and it is. But just barely. The title is in all caps because it was conceived as a spy show, with the letters standing for Junior Operatives Networking as Spies. But it ended up being about superstars who try to live a normal life at school.
(Stop me if this sounds familiar.) Producers have name-dropped ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ and HBO’s whimsical ‘Flight of the Conchords.’ But let’s be honest: The high-water mark for this sort of project is ‘The Monkees.’ Full review here.
