Nick Jonas to play mixed martial arts star

Singer NICK JONAS is to play a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter in a new TV drama.

The Jonas Brothers hunk is returning to the small screen full time in Navy St., which centers on a former fighter played by Frank Grillo, who runs an MMA gym.

Jonas is set to play Grillo's on-screen son, a star fighter who lands a contract to go professional with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

Jonas, who disbanded his group the Jonas Brothers last year (13), has previously appeared in TV shows such as Hawaii Five-O and Smash.

Navy St. will mark his first regular role on the small screen since he co-starred with his brothers on Disney Channel sitcom Jonas in 2010.
