Tuesday's premiere of Fox's Scream Queens marks the second gay television role for Nick Jonas.

Created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, Scream Queens centers on a series of murders involving the Kappa Kappa Tau sorority.

Jonas plays Boone, a member of the Dickie Dollar Scholars.

"I've been so honored to get to play some really strong gay characters ...and whatever I can do for the community is just a blessing to me," Jonas told Entertainment Tonight.

Jonas also plays an MMA fighter on DirecTV's Kingdom, which returns for its second season October 14.

When asked which role promises the most skin for fans, Jonas said that that might be a toss up.

"I think it might be Scream Queens," Jonas said. "There's a scene or two that I'm shirtless in. But in Kingdom, I play a fighter too, so there is a lot. It's a lot of shirtlessness."
