WATCH: Get Ready for a Gay, Shirtless Nick Jonas in Scream Queens

Jonas plays a gay character with many layers — some of which he'll take off — in the campy horror comedy.

Nick Jonas says he's thrilled and honored to be playing another gay character -- and that character, frat boy Boone of Scream Queens, may well be the best of the new season, reports Entertainment Tonight.

"Boone is very intense," Jonas told ET. "He's got a lot under the surface that you don't see at first, and it all unravels as the show goes on."

One of the things that will emerge in the campy horror comedy created by Ryan Murphy, ET reports, is that Boone has a crush on fraternity brother Chad Radwell, played by Glen Powell. Also revealed will be Jonas's skin -- he has some shirtless scenes in Scream Queens, along with many in his other series, Kingdom, in which he also plays a gay role.

"I've been so honored to play some really strong gay characters," Jonas told ET.

And there are many layers to Boone, he noted. "For Boone, in particular, and this show as a whole, everything is not as it seems," Jonas said. "So I would say get ready to be surprised by a lot of different things. In his heart of hearts, that may be who he is, but we'll have to find out as we watch."

Scream Queens, which focuses on a sorority under siege from a masked killer, premieres tonight at 8 Eastern/Pacific on Fox. Watch the ET segment below.
