Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist Norm Clarke has a terrific interview with Erich Bergen, who will be starring as “Bob Gaudio” in the JERSEY BOYS movie! Check out a sneak peak below:

Come June, Erich Bergen will be starring in a film version of his own redemption.

And if that isn’t the definition of landing on your feet, there’s this: Directing the show is Clint Eastwood, who has two best director Oscars for “Unforgiven” and “Million Dollar Baby.”

“It doesn’t get bigger than this,” said Bergen, who landed in the “Jersey Boys” film adaptation after being mysteriously dumped from the Las Vegas production of “Jersey Boys” in 2009.

In just his second feature film, he’s cast in the same role, as Bob Gaudio, the songwriting force behind the legendary Four Seasons.

Six weeks of filming ended in October, but Bergen, who turned 28 on New Year’s Eve, and his cast mates return to Los Angeles this week for post-audio work.

“Jersey Boys” was filmed in and around Los Angeles and on the Warner Brothers lot.

“The final two days were in New Jersey, right on the streets,” said Bergen, one of the original Las Vegas “Jersey Boys” when it opened in May 2008 at The Palazzo.

“I’m not sure if I’ve totally taken in what this is yet. Every day of filming you woke up, went to work, did your job,” he said. “I don’t think it will really hit me what we’ve done until we see the show.”

One scene featured the re-creation of the original “American Bandstand” set, including hundreds of teenage extras.

“It was like going to ‘Jersey Boys’ fantasy camp,” said Bergen, “especially with the real Frankie Valli sitting right there (on the Warner lot).”
