Can the former Disney kid go from chart-topping bro to world-beating bloke?
01 Have you ever worn a trilby?
Yep. If you can rock it, wear it.
02 Have you ever spent a significant amount of time talking to animals?
When I was working on Broadway, I’d come home for a big chat with my dog Elvis. He’s a great listener.
03 Have you ever had a hugely successful session of DIY?
I built a greenhouse one time. I was really proud of myself.
04 Ever thrown a punch and missed?
I’ve learned a lot from training with professional fighters for roles, so I think I could handle myself.
05 What’s the biggest thing you’ve ever set on fire?
Probably just a pizza box – I need to up my fire game.
06 What’s your favourite smell?
Gasoline and cigars. Not together, though.
07 Have you ever rescued an animal?
No, but if I ever do I want it to be dramatic. I’d want to save a dog from a fast-moving river, pull it to shore and have a big chat.
08 Have you ever fired a gun?
Growing up in Texas, there was always gonna be gunfire. I’ve beaten my brothers in shooting competitions.
09 What was the last film that scared the crap out of you?
Shutter Island. It was the psychological aspect that did it for me – that we can go completely insane.
10 Have you ever cried when the people from broken homes sing well on The X Factor?
No, and I don’t buy into every single story. The producers can often take liberties.
11 Ever shotgunned a can of beer?
I’m shooting a movie where I play a college kid, so I’ve been shotgunning a lot of beers recently. It ends up all over me.
12 Have you ever twerked?
No. I don't have the ass for it.
13 How long can you leave food on the floor before you can’t eat it?
10-15 seconds. That’s my rule. Burger on the floor? Wipe it down and get on with it.
14 Have you ever killed and eaten your own food?
Never. I prefer to leave it to the pros. I’m a meat guy – I’m sure I’ve tried it all. The weirdest was alligator sausage.
15 Have you ever successfully stared someone out?
Once in Australia, this guy started yelling at me from across the road. I was with a friend who was pretty big, so I just stopped and stared at this guy for 30 seconds. He said, “I’m sorry, mate” and I said, “It’s alright, just don’t be an asshole.”
Nick Jonas, you’re one hunting arson attack from bloke supremacy. Great work, sir.
Nick’s self-titled album is out now.
