People.com has a #JERSEYBOYSMovie feature that appeared online today, that includes some great insights from star John Lloyd Young! Below is a preview:

Warner Bros. is bringing the screen adaptation of the stage hit to theaters June 20. Clint Eastwood is the director.

Making his major Hollywood debut is John Lloyd Young in his Tony-winning role as Frankie Valli.

“To be making a movie in a lead role with [Clint Eastwood] as the director? I still can’t believe it,” Young tells PEOPLE, admitting working with Dirty Harry was intimidating at first. “He’s an icon, a very nice man and a very, very good director – but also real tough to read.”

While Young, 38, notes there will be some differences between the stage and screen versions, the changes are natural.

“The film is the follow-through of what you can imagine would happen when you see the show on stage: It goes deeper,” Young says.

Visit PEOPLE.com for the whole story & there will be more to come in the print edition of PEOPLE that will be available at newsstands tomorrow!

  2. After seeing so many bad transitions from stage to screen I am withholding my enthusiasm. I love the stage show so much and have seen it 31 times (32 coming up). I am hoping for the best with the film and will definitely see it.

  7. ive seen the movie 3 times. It is probably the best movie I’ve seen in a long time. Love the guys who play four seasons especially John Lloyd Young. I thought the original Broadway guys were good too. Going to see USO concert today with John Lloyd Young and the Military spouses choir.
