'Jersey Boys', as everyone who's seen them on the West End, Broadway and across the world will know, is the story of four young men from the wrong side of the New Jersey tracks, who came together to form 1960s iconic rock group The Four Seasons.

After eight years breaking stage records around the world, 'Jersey Boys' is coming to the big screen, in the hands of director Clint Eastwood.

Erich Bergen stars as Bob Gaudio, who wrote or co-wrote all of the group’s biggest hits. Michael Lomenda and Vincent Piazza star respectively as Nick Massi and Tommy DeVito, two original members of the band.
