The youngest member of the Jonas Brothers is back – and he's buffer than ever!
Nick Jonas, 21, spends a lot of time shirtless in the first-look trailer for Kingdom, the upcoming DirecTV series about group of mixed martial arts competitors based in a Venice, California, gym.
The former boy bander definitively sheds his teenybopper image in this nearly three-minute clip, which hints at plot lines involving drugs and prostitution, in addition to the pressures associated with the highly competitive full-contact sport. The series also stars Friday Night Lights alum Matt Lauria.
