JERSEY BOYS

It's terrific. Jersey Boys is dynamically alive in music while, as a drama, it catches the very texture, almost the smell, of its time.

FIRST LOOK - New Photo of John Lloyd Young in JERSEY BOYS Film

PEOPLE has shared an exclusive photo from the highly anticipated big screen adaptation of the musical Jersey Boys, directed by Clint Eastwood. The film will be released in theaters nationwide on June 20, 2014.

John Lloyd Young will make his big screen debut as Frankie Valli, a role which earned him a Tony Award.

"To be making a movie in a lead role with [Clint Eastwood] as the director? I still can't believe it," the actor tells PEOPLE. "He's an icon, a very nice man and a very, very good director - but also real tough to read."

The 38-year-old says working in front of a camera is a very different experience from performing before a live theater audience. "The film is the follow-through of what you can imagine would happen when you see the show on stage: It goes deeper," he shares.

Fortunately for Young, he has received first hand advice from none other than Valli himself. "I've known Frankie since the original [2005] Broadway production, and I've learned a tenacity and fighting to get your talent out there, which he has never stopped doing his entire life," he explains. "One of the reasons people respond so well to his character in this show is because he's like a walking depiction of the American dream."

Joining Young in the cast are Renée Marino as Mary Delgado,Erich Bergen as Bob Gaudio,Christopher Walken as Gyp DeCarlo, Mike Doyle as Bob Crew, Joey Russo as Joe Pesci,Erica Piccininnias Lorraine,Donnie Kehr as Norm Waxman, Jeremy Luke as Donnie and Johnny Cannizzaro as Nick DeVito, and Kathrine Narducci as Mary Rinaldi.

JERSEY BOYS is based upon the Broadway musical featuring the music and lyrics of Bob Gaudio & Bob Crewe, written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice.

JERSEY BOYS is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. It is about a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks who became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide - all before they were thirty. The show features all their hits including "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Oh What A Night," "Walk Like A Man," "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" and "Working My Way Back To You."

JERSEY BOYS is the recipient of the 2006 Tony Award for Best Musical and the 2009 Olivier Award for Best Musical. The Original Broadway Cast Recording, produced by Bob Gaudio, received the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album and has been certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The Broadway production also won the 2006 Outer Critics Circle & Drama League Awards for Best Musical. The London production also won the 2009 UK People¹s Choice and What¹s on Stage Awards for Best New Musical. The Toronto production won three Dora Awards, including the Audience Choice Award for Outstanding Production. The Australian production is 2010 recipient of the Helpmann Award for Australia¹s Best Musical and seven Victorian Green Room Awards.
