The 21-year-old shows off his buff physique in his upcoming movie Careful What You Wish For
due out in 2014.
"[It's] definitely a different role than anything I've ever done before," he told WCNC
in Charlotte, N.C., in May while shooting the film.
The former Jonas Brothers
singer, who along with his two brothers announced their breakup
in October, plays the lead in the thriller.
"[It's] one of those things where I really wanted to challenge myself,” he said.
Jonas plays a character who is caught up in an affair with the wife of a rich investment banker (played by Dermot Mulroney
). He says the role, which features him in sex scenes with Isabel Lucas
,"is so far from anything I've ever experienced," but that doesn't make him nervous.
"It's important for me to take steps and continue to grow as an actor and push myself in this way," he said. "I think, for the audience, they have to be prepared to come see a movie that's pretty intense."
