Who's the Best Guy for Broadway's 'How To Succeed in Business'? (POLL)


They're three of the hottest young guys in Hollywood but who is the best fit to play the role of J. Pierrepont Finch in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying?

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe was the first to take on the Broadway, followed by Glee guy Darren Criss who handed off the role to Nick Jonas on Wednesday. Given the news, we want to know: Who do you think is best for the part? Cast your vote in the poll and leave a few comments while you're at it!

The 18-year-old Jo. Bros. Nick (who has been in productions of Beauty and the Beast and Les Miserables) announced on his Twitter Wednesday that he was heading back to Broadway to star in How to Success in Business Without Really Trying.

He also even stopped off to announce the news officially and posed for a few pics.

    Not sure as to who is "better" for the job but: Daniel really made a mark playing Finch and for someone whose only theatre background was Equus, and for him to start from scratch with his singing and dancing, hat's off to him! Nick is a broadway veteran and I'm happy to see him go back to his roots so kudos to him. But I'm honestly much more excited for Darren because it seems that he is having a 'perfect storm' - everything's falling into place for him and given how hard working he is, he well and truly deserves every blessing coming his way :D

    Really? Because Darren has been doing theater since he was a child. And studied theater and was involved in many shows at University of Michigan, so I'd say that is a massive theater background (moreso than Nick, I think). He does also does many many smaller performances of his own music (not as high-intensity as a JoBro's concert, but it still is singing for 2 hours straight). And if that's not enough, he did the Glee Live tour this summer. So I think that he is very well prepared. This is kinda all what he's been working towards since he was a 7 year old acting in San Francisco theaters. So I don't think adjusting will be too hard for him. This may not be completely accurate because I don't know that much about Nick, but it seems like Darren may actually have more theater experience than Nick.

    Are you serious ? I Can NOT decide ! I mean Darren's perfect ! But Nick's too !!!

    I'm sure Darren will do wonderful, and he is exceedingly talented and I love him, but he's new to this. I think it will be harder for him to adjust to it- he's not used to performing high- intensity shows 8 times a week in front of screaming fans. (Hopefully no screaming will happen on Broadway, though.) Nick has a theatre background, and is used to singing for nearly two hours straight in front of thousands of screaming fans. While i think both will do fantastic on the show, i think Nick is better prepared.

    "handed off the role" sounded like he was giving it over to Nick...I nearly had a heart attack. I am SO glad Darren is going to be there, because I got tix for Jan 4th the day it was announced he'd be in it!

    Absolutely, Darren Criss will be great in the part - He does a great job no matter what he pursues!!

  • Mardie

    This role just screams Darren Criss! While Dan has done a wonderful job in this part; and I'm sure Nick will also...it is tailor-made for Darren. Already have tickets for January!

    Darren for sure.
