Nicholas Jerry "Nick" Jonas (born September 16, 1992) is an American singer-songwriter, musician and actor, best known for being one-third of Music/TheJonasBrothers, a pop-rock band he formed with brothers Joe and Kevin. Originally intended as a solo act, his record label liked the way he sounded with his brothers on backup, thusly launching them as a trio.

Together, they starred in Creator/DisneyChannel original series ''Series/{{JONAS}}'' as fictionalized versions of themselves, as well as the Disney Channel original movie ''Film/CampRock'', and its sequel, ''Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam.''

Apart from his brothers, he formed Nick Jonas & The Administration, releasing their first (and only) album in 2010. He's since gone solo, releasing his self-debut album in November 2014, which spawned the hit singles "Chains" and "Jealous", the latter of which charted as his first Top Ten hit in the United States.

As mentioned above, he's also an actor, most notably holding regular roles on [=DirecTV's=] [[UsefulNotes/MixedMartialArts MMA]] drama ''Kingdom'' opposite Creator/FrankGrillo, and Creator/RyanMurphy's Creator/{{FOX}} horror-comedy ''Series/{{Scream Queens|2015}}''.

In addition to his screen roles, he's also done musical theatre. Some of his more prominent roles include Chip in ''Theatre/BeautyAndTheBeast'' and J. Pierrepont Finch in ''Theatre/HowToSucceedInBusinessWithoutReallyTrying''.

Unsurprisingly, [[TheCasanova he's racked up quite the dating history in his time]]. He dated Music/MileyCyrus, Music/SelenaGomez, former [[BeautyContest Miss Universe]] Olivia Culpo, Music/DeltaGoodrem, Creator/NicoleAnderson, [[Film/LesMiserables2012 Samantha Barks]]...

!!! He provides examples of:
* CallBack: Perhaps not intentional, but a few of his songs call back to songs he did with his brothers.
** "Rose Garden", for one, which calls back to Music/TheJonasBrothers' song "Just Friends".
** "Stay", which calls back to "Sorry". (''This time is the last time I will ever beg you to stay''/''Just tell me that you'll stay''.)
* TheCasanova: Delta Goodrem, Miley Cyrus, Olivia Culpo, Creator/KateHudson and Music/SelenaGomez. Doesn't that say it all. Not to mention Samantha Barks, a rumored fling with a background dancer, and a brief relationship with Creator/NicoleAnderson.
* TheCoverChangesTheGender: Notably averted when covering songs at his shows. Especially with a spectacularly bitter cover of Music/{{Adele}}'s "Someone Like You".
** Especially since he changes other lyrics in the song at will, but leaves the gender the way it is.
* GreenEyedMonster: "Jealous".
* HiddenDepths: He, unlike his brothers, was acting in Broadway plays from a very young age. He starred as Marius for about a month in [[Theatre/LesMiserables Les Mis]] in 2010 and took over Darren Criss' role in How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
* [[IllGirl Ill Boy]]: He was a slight spectacle when the band first got popular, since he was one of the first teen pop stars to have Type-One Diabetes.
* ImportantHaircut: Nick shaved his hair into a buzz cut after the Jonas Brothers split up.
* LyricalDissonance: "Who I Am". Sounds like a relatively nice song, but the lyrics are remarkably bitter.
* MrFanservice
* NewSoundAlbum: ''Nick Jonas'' has a more mature contemporary R&B sound.
* NonAppearingTitle: "Vesper's Goodbye" on Nick Jonas & The Administration's album ''Who I Am''.
* TeenIdol
* TenorBoy: As [[Theatre/LesMiserables Marius Pontmercy]].
* WhenHeSmiles: He was rather well known for a long time for showing about as much emotion in public appearances as Creator/KristenStewart. He very, ''very'' rarely gave an honest smile. (He's better than he used to be, but it's still rare enough to be heartwarming when he smiles.)
