On The Big Screen – Yeah, we get that it’s a musical, but it’s directed by Clint Eastwood so that’s got to count for something. This weekend’s big movie opening is the filmed version of the long-running Broadway hit and Tony-award winner Jersey Boys that dramatizes the formation, success, and eventual break-up of the 1960s rock ‘n roll group The Four Seasons. The cast is basically made up of all unknowns, but Christopher Walken makes a brief appearance as a mobster.
