Many of you will know Joe Jonas best for being married to Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, though as one of the Jonas Brothers, he's also a well-known singer. In recent years, he's taken a shot at acting, lending his talents to projects like Zoolander 2 and Devotion.
During a recent interview about the latter with Variety, Jonas was asked if there's ever been a role he missed out on that crushed him. Believe it or not, 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man was among them!
"In the moment, you’re destroyed or you’re defeated. But you realize this person was brilliant. I remember years ago I was up for Spider-Man and I was so, so excited and it was the year Andrew Garfield got it. Obviously, he was the right one."
"But I remember that was a big thing at the time, going back for callbacks and the director used to be a music video director," he continues. "So I was like, 'I got an in here.' But you know what? I love the process of auditioning and putting yourself out there and having to prove yourself."
Asked whether he got far enough into the audition process to try on one of Spider-Man's costumes, Jonas responded, "No, but I’m sure I had one that I would try on occasionally back in the day."
The musician and actor didn't reveal whether he still has any superhero aspirations, but seeing him as Spider-Man...well, it would have certainly been interesting. It seems unlikely fans would have embraced his casting back in the early 2010s, and hard to picture him standing alongside Tom Holland and Tobey Maguire in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Harry Styles recently joined the MCU when he played Eros/Starfox in Eternals, so Jonas may well get another chance down the line.
If not Spider-Man, who do you think he could play in a comic book movie or TV show?
