Nick Jonas may soon join the Rock, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black in the new Jumanji movie. Deadline reports that the shirt-doffing pop star is in talks to appear in the “reimagining” of the 1995 family film, as long as he can make it work alongside his musical commitments. There’s no indication of what sort of character Jonas would be playing, but in May the Rock hinted that one of the major roles left to be filled was “one semi-sorta bad-ass dude.” The other part was “one bad-ass girl,” which is certainly a fitting phrase for Hollywood in 2016.
