Matt Lauria, Nick Jonas throw punches in new 'Kingdom' trailer

If Warrior were made into a TV show, swapping Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton for Matt Lauria and Nick Jonas, you’d have Kingdom, a new series from DirecTV.

In the first trailer for Kingdom, we’re introduced to a family drama set in the world of mixed martial arts. At the center of it all is Warrior star Frank Grillo, who once again plays a trainer and the owner of a gym. Jonas stars as Grillo’s prize-fighting son, while Jonathan Tucker plays Jonas’ older, slightly darker brother. Friday Night Light‘s Matt Lauria also comes into play as a fighter recently released on parole and trying to come back into their world.


Nick Jonas says he's 'being considered' for 'American Idol' judge seat

Jonas had been an actor on Broadway. He’d been a hit on TV. And he could definitely sing — a must for a musical drama chronicling the making of a tuner about Marilyn Monroe. EW caught up with Jonas to chat about tonight’s episode of Smash, Broadway, and acting alongside Anjelica Huston.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Who is this Lyle West?
NICK JONAS: Lyle is a really common character. He’s very precocious and he has a lot of confidence. Basically, he’s a child actor who has just come into a bunch of financial success from the television show that he’s on that’s gone into syndication. He knows all the people involved in the Marilyn workshop from his time as a theater actor as a young boy. So the director, Derek Wills [Jack Davenport], throws Lyle a birthday party where Anjelica Huston’s character tries to get him to invest in the show. READ FULL STORY
