Joe Jonas is many things, but we'd hardly say that "actor" is his most illustrious titles.
And yet the 20-year-old Jonas Brother is warming up his acting chops on a future episode of Hot in Cleveland (you know, that show with Betty White and the other three women, whom you don't care about).
So we've got to ask: Would you be interested in Joe Jonas as a serious actor?
Obviously, this isn't the singer's first foray into the wild world of acting. Joe and his brethren were nominated for an Emmy (really) for their Disney Channel sugar fix J.O.N.A.S., and they mastered the post-High School Musical period with their star-making Camp Rock. But we're a little worried, hons, because there's nothing we hate more than a star who tries to overextend himself in a market that doesn't want him. ‘Cause, quite frankly, he's not really all that great of an actor...
Remember David Hasselhoff trying to be a musician, right? Or Britney Spears' attempt at being a serious actress in Crossroads. Or Jessica Simpson's failed efforts in moviemaking (Blonde Ambition, we barely remember thee). Even John Stamos bombing on Broadway in Bye Bye Birdie last year. And for every Mariah-Carey-in-Precious, there is a Mariah-Carey-in-Glitter. It goes on and on.
It's not that we don't want to see Joe find success in being an actor. We just hope that the kid doesn't think it's a calling or anything.
Care to prove us wrong, Joe? Hey, we're open.
And since Nick's star just keeps getting hotter every day (Niley will rise again!), guess Joe's gotta find something to keep himself busy, so we do understand.
