Exclusive: Frankie Valli On What He Really Thought Of The ‘Jersey Boys’ Movie - K-EARTH 101 ⇢

Fans and critics alike felt that the movie adaptation of the vivacious musical lacked that special oomph onscreen. Actor John Lloyd Young, who also portrays Frankie in the musical, didn’t bring quite the same energy of Frankie in the movie as he has in the musical.  Though he hasn’t seen the movie, Frankie knows it can be hard to perfectly capture and translate the spirit a real character on film.

“I’ve seen lots of movies where people play a real, live character and it’s not quite the same. It’s got nothing to do with the person’s performance,” he said. “I think when you are going to play someone, you should really study that person for I say at least a year…he should have hung out with me.”

One example, as Gary Bryan notes, was a scene in which Frankie and the Four Seasons were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Young played Frankie much older than he actually was at the time with his shoulders hunched over.

“When we were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, we weren’t that old,” Frankie chuckled.
