There's a reason why Dwayne Johnson has the millions AND MILLIONS(!!!) of fans flocking to his social media pages. It's because, like his buddy Vin Diesel, he always keeps his followers in the loop on everything he's doing. Recently he dropped the first image from the Jumanji set, featuring him alongside Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan. But there was one star who was left out of that surprisingly controversial image (Dude, it's Jumanji. Chill.), and it was Nick Jonas. Well that has now been rectified.
Here's the first look at the singer/actor on the Hawaii set, looking more like a downed pilot than somebody who planned for a jungle excursion.
Officially welcoming my guy @NickJonas to #Jumanji. Great dude, great positive energy and very talented. He's gonna kill this role like I kill things with my bare hands. The jungle awaits. The adventure continues. And ironically the one who sings the most on set is Jack Black 😂. #OnLocation #Hawaii #WelcomeToTheFamilyNick #Jumanji 🔥
Under normal circumstances that might be considered Jonas looking kinda rugged, but next to Johnson he looks like a pop star playing the part. We don't know much of anything about his character, but we do know the adults will be playing the game avatars of co-stars Alex Wolff, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, and Morgan Turner. Jonas is still pretty young himself so it's unclear if his character will also be some kind of archetype.
Jonas can be seen in theaters right now in the college hazing drama, Goat. Jumanji opens next year on July 28th.
