Abigail Breslin Describes Her Scream Queens Character’s Fashion as “Elsa from Frozen at Coachella”.

Nick Jonas will star in Fox’s Scream Queens, debuting Tuesday, but that doesn’t mean he’s put music on the backburner. Both Matt Bomer and Nick Jonas were bringing some serious sexy to the red carpet last night for the premiere of FOX’s upcoming Ryan Murphy show, Scream Queens.

Abigail Breslin is perhaps better known for her killer roles in Signs, No Reservations, and My Sister’s Keeper than for her daring red-carpet choices, but that’s all bound to change once Scream Queens fanatics get a hold of her wardrobe as Chanel #5 on the new Fox show.Skyler Samuels chats about her role in the star-studded horror-comedy “Scream Queens.” And, what was it like shooting with her childhood crush, Nick Jonas? The former boy band member released his latest single “Levels” in August, and says the track reflects the sound fans can expect from his next solo album. “ ‘Levels’ is a good introduction to the next step,” Jonas tells EW exclusively. “I think [the album will] go even a bit further with some more soul and R&B sounds, even hip hop influences in there. Let the men of “Scream Queens” (which premieres tonight!) — aka the “Scream Kings” — tell you all about their scene-stealing characters in this hilarious behind-the-scenes video, which MTV News is premiering below.

For the program’s L.A. premiere last night, the 19-year-old blonde wore a faux fur Tadashi Shoji dress she suggests is what her character would sport in front the cameras. “She’s always wearing a fur, but I also wanted to do something that’s comfortable, and by the way, I just didn’t feel like being uncomfortable,” she told us. I’m really just digging deep.” Despite staying busy with appearances on two television shows this fall — the second being DirecTV’s Kingdom, which returns for season 2 in October — Jonas says his forthcoming record will be released in early 2016. “We have not picked a date officially yet, but we have a sense,” Jonas reveals. “It’s going to be at some point early next year, so probably the end of February or early March.” And he isn’t the only Jonas brother putting out new music.

We’ll be live-tweeting the amazing episode on @ETnow, so join us!) So to help get you even more thrilled for the killer comedy, ET caught up with star Nick Jonas at the Scream Queens premiere event on Monday to get the exclusive scoop on his character Boone’s “unexpected” motives, his fraternity flirtations, and how “honored” Jonas is to support the LGBT community with his second gay character on TV. It was obvious that the talent has so far enjoyed working with the star-studded cast, noting that “the girls are like my big sisters and I love them” and that it’s been “super fun” to work with iconic actresses like Jamie Lee Curtis. We’ve already told you that Jonas’ portrayal of Boone is straight-up comedic gold, but now it’s time to learn a little bit more about the douchey – and potentially deadly! – new character. “Boone is very intense,” the “Levels” singer explained of his preppy role on Scream Queens. “He’s got a lot under the surface that you don’t see at first, and it all unravels as the show goes on.” Underneath Boone’s perfectly color-coordinated surface, fans will quickly discover that the college student is harboring a crush for Chad Radwell, his big brother in the university’s golf fraternity. “For Boone, in particular, and this show as a whole, everything is not as it seems,” he teased. “So I would say get ready to be surprised by a lot of different things.

Jonas thinks his brother will “really kill it” with DNCE, but isn’t exactly feeling a mini Jonas Brothers reunion anytime soon. “As far as collaborations, I’m not sure,” he admits. “It’s important for both of us to support each other and be excited for each other, but give each other that space as well to do our own thing. In his heart of hearts, that may be who he is, but we’ll have to find out as we watch.” On Jonas’ other hit series, Kingdom, the star plays fighter Nate Kulina, who specializes in wrestling and grappling, but the real fight is within himself. The season one finale revealed that Nate might be gay when he drunkenly found solace in another man’s embrace after being turned away from a gay bar. “I think it’s all about being true to who you are,” Jonas said when asked what message he hopes to spread to his LGBT fans.

We like to call it the ‘Coch-Elsa’ look because it kind of looks like I’m Elsa from Frozen at Coachella.” Will audiences let it go once the look makes its debut onscreen?
