Will “Goat” Elevate Nick Jonas to an A List Actor?

Posted on | January 27, 2016 | No Comments

Goat, starring Ben Schnetzer and Nick Jonas, recently premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to solid reviews. The film, based on the memoir by Brad Land, centers around Brad (Schnetzer), a college freshman who was viciously beaten by carjackers three months prior. Brad pledges his older brother Brett’s (Jonas) fraternity and is subjected to serious hazing by members, including Brett.

This isn’t your Disney Nick Jonas. His character features some dark spots—binge-drinking, snorting cocaine, having sex—that viewers aren’t accustomed to seeing from the actor. And he pulls it off well, giving a strong, powerful performance. It’s the kind of execution which should—and most likely will—bring forth numerous top tier film roles. If Jonas can continue this rise, could he become an A list actor in Hollywood?

JONAS BROTHERS STAYING TOGETHER: NICK JONAS GOES SOLO

Posted on | October 29, 2009 | No Comments

nick-jonas1Jonas Brothers member Nick Jonas will release solo album next year, but the boy-band will stay unitedly. Mother Denise Jonas spills the beans to Parade.

Most teens feel the superfluity of their moms talking about them to other people. But, for Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers, that talk is on a lordlier scale—like having your mom blab to the media about your new solo project.

Parade Magazine released quotes from its upcoming weekend issue today, including Mrs. Jonas spilling the beans on Nick’s new gig.

“Nick is working on a solo act—it’s called Nick Jonas and The Administration. Shhh! He’s at the photo shoot for the album cover right now,” Denise Jonas gabbed.

In reply, the Jonas Brothers Website affirmed that the other bandmembers do support their brother, and that no, the band is not breaking up. “We are ALL excited about this project AND what we are doing TOGETHER! We plan to make music together for as long as we can,” Joe, Nick and Kevin blogged on their site.

The Disney-sponsored brother band made its acting debut on Hannah Montana, and several stars from Disney shows and movies have gone on to be megastars, admitting Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Miley Cyrus and Ashley Tisdale. But, the brothers better watch out: it looks arising up Disney means growing up a little faster.

Various Disney stars have gone on to lead out-of-control lives, letting in Spears and Lohan. While Tisdale admitted to a nose job to fix a diverged septum, Lohan is speculated to have had breast augmentation and multiple lip injections (not to mention issues with alcohol abuse).

Britney also may have featherbedded in both procedures, and has complained about her post-baby body, with a friend telling in InTouch Weekly that she desired liposuction on her thighs, which she considered “too fat.” At least her hair looks good.

But, unlike these stars, Nick has his brothers to share the spotlight and keep any wild behavior in check.

Nick’s new album is set to release in early 2010.

JONAS BROTHERS MOM : KEVIN PICKED THE ‘RIGHT GIRL’

Posted on | October 29, 2009 | No Comments

jonas-brothers5Remember when Nick Jonas from the Jonas Brothers is going solo ?? That was let out by Denise Jonas, the Jonas Brothers mummy. Now she has something else to tell. She said to People about Kevin’s fiancee, Danielle Deleasa!

“I really think she is the right girl,” says Denise.

She seemingly told Kevin, “You are marrying your mother – but she is just thinner and prettier.”

She says that Danielle has been consented by the whole family, admitting the youngest Jonas, Frankie: “He really loves her and is proud of her.. He already acts like a little brother [to her].”

She seems like a nice mom!

NICK JONAS DITCHING THOSE OTHER BROTHERS….FOR NOW

Posted on | October 27, 2009 | No Comments

nick-jonasIt was just a matter of time until one of the Jonas Brothers made up one’s mind he is the Beyoncé of the group and we are glad it’s Nick Jonas.

The young one affirmed today that, about six months ago, he started working on a side project in Nashville with four musicians not named Jonas.

Hence, the debut album from Nick Jonas & The Administration is due out sometime next year.

(Sounds like Nick is taking his nickname Mr. President a little too seriously but when you are a little millionaire at the age of 17, you can do whatever you want.)

The admission from Nick puts to rest the meditation that the teen was branching out on his own and comes hours after Mama Jonas spilled the beans.

Earlier today, Parade magazine freed quotes from its Sunday issue in which Denise Jonas says, “Nick is bringing on a solo act-it’s called Nick Jonas and The Administration. Shhh! He is at the photo shoot for the album cover right now.”

Naturally, the question stayed, would this mean the end of the JoBros?

Scarcely, according to the heartthrobby trio.

Ticking off their points of give-and-take one by one, Joe, Nick and Kevin (or whoever does their blogging) wrote on their website today that “The Jonas Brothers are NOT breaking up!” as well as “We are ALL excited about this project AND what we are doing TOGETHER!” and “We plan to make music together for as long as we can.”

“A three chord strand is not easily broken”, read another message from Joe and Kevin, “and one thing’s for sure…this three chord strand is stronger now than it’s ever been.”

They are also designing another world tour for next summer, which is a relief, but still…

“This project would only expand the Jonas brand,” a source reassured E! News. But fortify the brand like how Justin Timberlake breaking out on his own helped *NSYNC?

“The music is awesome and in truth shows off Nick’s vocal range,” the source added.

In the interim this will give Kevin enough of time to get married and Joe can, uh, what’s he got going on? Oh, right! He’s maybe romancing Demi Lovato. See, everyone wins!
