CALLIN' IT: Nick Jonas Is Set To Become Hollywood's Next Bona Fide Movie Star
Imagine being 10-years-old again and writing ‘Mrs Nick Jonas Brothers’ all over the back of your school textbooks.
Now imagine being in your mid-twenties and graduating to signing off your work emails with ‘Mrs Nick Jonas’, but for a whole smorgasbord of reasons.
Well after three whole days of anticipatory weeping, we sat down with our Disney love and mega musician Nick Jonas ahead of the Jumanji: Welcome To The Junge DVD release, to discuss his serious foothold in the Hollywood acting scene.
From being cast in one of his favourite childhood films (Jumanji...duh) to the film grossing almost USD$1 BILLION in the box office worldwide - it's literally in the top 50 highest grossing films EVER - it's clear to tell the secret of his success.
"To see the success that it’s had has been really inspiring to me and I think for all of us, it shows how hard work pays off," he expained.
Nick plays Alex, who gets sucked into the game as avatar Jefferson “Seaplane” McDonough. Along with his fellow comrades - played by The Rock, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan - Nick must find a way to escape the clutches of Jumanji.
While we’re normally used to seeing Nick break out into song, the Golden Globe nominee found a way bring his musical side into the iconic action film.
"While we were on set [Jack Black and I] were writing this song as a bit of a joke and then everyone on set really liked it. So, we said you know, let’s just make a little music video to this and we got the other cast members to be involved."
The must-see Jumanji theme song sadly failed to make the final cut of the film, however, the video has since been uploaded to YouTube and has over half a million views.
Is there anything he can't do? We couldn't help but ask Nick to tease what was next on the Hollywood horizon.
"I’m just in the season of really pushing myself to continue to grow in both the music side of things and the acting. I’m genuinely enjoying the ride, you know I think it’s been probably one of the best years of my career in a sense and I just want to continue to build on that."
Which is why we made it clear to Nick that he would be PERFECT on Game Of Thrones co-starring alongside his future sister-in-law Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark).
Sadly, to our dismay, Nick replied, "Not that I know of yet."
HELLO HBO!!! FIX THIS!!!
