— Nick Jonas, responding to Bravo’s Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. Jonas was discussing his DirectTV series, Kingdom, a gritty drama set in the world of Mixed Martial Arts in California’s Venice Beach. Jonas mentioned he did “a lot of nudity” for the 10-episode series, and also suggesting a major storyline revolves around his character’s sexuality, prompting a somewhat over-excited Cohen to ask, “Is he, like, bi-curious?” The show premieres Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 9 p.m., and also stars Frank Grillo, Kiele Sanchez, Matt Lauria, Jonathan Tucker and Joanna Going. Watch Nick’s clip, as well as a trailer for the series below.
