THE STORY ABOUT THE FOUR SEASONS The rock 'n roll group not the hotel.

Details Release Date: Jun 20, 2014; Rated: R; Length: 134 Minutes; Genre: Musical; With: Kathrine Narducci, Vincent Piazza and Christopher Walken; Distributor: Warner Bros.

John Lloyd Young, who won a Tony award in 2006 for his portrayal of the falsetto giant Frankie Valli in the hit Broadway musical Jersey Boys, didn't realize that a routine Sunday-matinee performance was his big-screen audition. ''The first time I met Clint Eastwood was backstage after the show,'' says Young. ''And the next time was on set. I can't imagine a better beginning to what I hope will be a Hollywood career.'' Young's Valli ages from 16 to 60 in the rags-to-riches Cinderfella story, which also stars Christopher Walken as the mobster who's a father figure to the young Four Seasons.
