It’s almost hard to believe that Joe Jonas recorded his first song with his brothers Nick and Kevin, “Please Be Mine,” in 2005—seeing the trio sign with Columbia Records as Jonas Brothers. For the past decade, he’s been all over the world, performing to packed crowds, but now he’s taking a different turn with a dramatic role in the Korean War film Devotion.

Joe Jonas in Devotion

“I know I’m not going to be their first choice for the role, right?” jests Joe Jonas when discussing his role in Devotion. “There’s a lot of good that can come with having a name like mine attached, but it can also be a distraction.” However, Jonas wanted a film project that would challenge him.

Regarding DevotionJoe Jonas admits, “I know I’m the new guy. So, I wanted to be surrounded by great people who I know I can learn from.” Jonas continues, “I know they were like, ‘Let’s see if this Jonas kid can do it.’ And though that’s for them to decide in the end, I was going to show them how hard I was going to work at it.”

Joe Jonas Receives Expert Advice

Preparing for Devotion, Joe Jonas worked with his actor wife, Sophie Turner, referring to her as “the best acting coach ever.” He also took advice from Matthew McConaughey. “He’s a dragon slayer. He’d share stories about the extremes he would go to feel what his characters feel, standing barefoot on the ledge of a 20-story building, his feet bleeding,” explains Jonas. “I knew I wasn’t going to be able to go to his level, but for me, it meant I had to step up.”

Joe Jonas x Khalid

Joe Jonas performs with Khalid for Devotion’s credits song entitled Not Alone. About the track, Jonas explains, “I wanted it to be a male duet, partially because this movie tells the story of these two guys that have this deeply emotional bond.” The singer adds, “I wanted to match that in some version. My friend was like, ‘Did you call Khalid yet? And I was like, ‘Oh f***,’ you mean the most obvious person?”
