Nick Jonas isn't a kid anymore. The 20-year-old has been cast in a very adult role. The actor will star in the upcoming film, Careful What You Wish For. Jonas will be one part of a heated love triangle.

Nick Jonas Nick Jonas is branching out into the film world. The singer and actor has landed the lead in a thriller called Careful What You Wish For. That's an intimidating title, right? Monday, Hyde Park-Image Nation and Troika Pictures confirmed the news.

Jonas will star opposite Australian actress Isabel Lucas (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen). According to the press release, this will be Jonas' first lead in a feature film.

Fans will see the former child star like they've never seen him before. Careful What You Wish For is reminiscent of Basic Instinct and Body Heat.

Those are two sultry thrillers that were known for their X-rated sex scenes. In this film, Jonas will play an adulterer. His character "Doug gets more than he bargained for when he starts having an affair with Lena (Lucas), the young wife of an investment banker renting the lake house next door for the summer. The husband’s suspicious death reveals a substantial life insurance policy."

Good for him! He's always been the most talented of the 3 brothers, and even though I hated JoBro music, I surprisingly LOVED Nick's solo album a few years back. It was blues/rock..I am looking forward to this new movie. I am hoping people give him a chance and not pre-judge it as a new movie from a former Disney star. I think Nick is very talented, humble, and has really grown into a very y young man.

I'm looking forward to this movie. I saw Nick Jonas on Broadway and he was very good.
