Joe Jonas recalls how he lost the role of ‘Spider Man’ to Andrew Garfield

Joe Jonas had his hopes up while auditioning for Spiderman in 2012

In a recent podcast with Variety, ‘Jonas Brothers‘ band member, Joe Jonas was reminiscent of a major ‘what if’ moment in his career in 2012. The American singer and actor recalled of the time in 2012 when he auditioned for the role of Spiderman for The Amazing Spiderman but ‘lost’ the Spider-Man role to none other than Andrew Garfield.

Jonas admits Garfield was the right choice

Jonas recollected how excited he was while auditioning for the iconic role. But eventually, when the role went to Andrew Garfield, Jonas, instead of feeling destroyed or defeated, recognized that the ‘brilliant’ Garfield “was the right choice.” The 33-year-old Jonas admits that he felt that he felt that he had an upper-hand over other auditionees and practically ‘had an in’ as The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb was previously a music video director. Webb directed music videos for famous artists and bands such as Miley Cyrus and Green Day.

Jonas’s verdict on 2-time Academy Award nominee Garfield was clearly accurate as his character made a return to the big screen in Spider-Man: No Way Home, alongside Tom Holland and Tobey Maguire. Garfield proved to be a fan favourite, with many demanding a third and final Spider-Man film featuring Garfield to complete the ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ trinity.

Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner is Jonas’s toughest critic

Jonas isn’t a stranger to the acting world. He has acted in Camp Rock and the Disney series, Jonas. He found a shoulder of support in the shape of his wife and Game of Thrones star, Sophie Turner. Jonas stated that Turner was his “toughest critic” who brings out Jonas’ A-game. “Yes, I’m going to be a little nervous [but she’s] super helpful and I feel like what a great acting coach to walk me through this. And I do have her to thank,” Jonas further added. The couple recently welcomed a second child together in July of this year.

Musician Jonas still encompasses an inherent love for acting

Jonas stated that he loved the concept “of auditioning and putting yourself out there and having to prove yourself.” The COVID-19 pandemic provided an opportunity to the musician to rekindle his passion for acting and improve on his skills as musical tours were brought to an abrupt halt. The commitment to finetune his acting skills during the pandemic clearly paid off as the star features in the war-film, Devotion, which is presently screening in cinema halls worldwide.
