Erich Bergen, who played the role of Four Seasons mastermind Bob Gaudio in the national tour, Los Angeles and Las Vegas casts of Jersey Boys, will reprise the role in Clint Eastwood's film adaptation of the Tony Award-winning musical. Bergen joins previously announced cast members Joey Russo, Jeremy Luke and Christopher Walken. Original star John Lloyd Young is rumored to reprise his Tony-winning role as Frankie Valli.
Jersey Boys tells the story of how the Four Seasons became one of the top singing groups of the 1960s before they turned 30. As in the show, the film will incorporate hits such as “Sherry,” “Oh What a Night,” Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.” The Broadway production opened on October 4, 2005, and continues its run at the August Wilson Theatre.
Bergen's film and TV credits include How Sweet It Is, Gossip Girl, Person of Interest, Desperate Housewives and Franklin & Bash. His theater credits include Billy Crocker in the national tour of Roundabout Theatre Company's Anything Goes, the title role in Hero at the Marriott Theatre in Lincolnshire, IL, and Rudi Gernreich in the Los Angeles premiere of The Temperamentals.
