He’s a bona fide rock star and stage actor, and now Nick Jonas will add to his resume with his first lead role in a feature film.

The “Who I Am” hitmaker has been cast as the male lead opposite Isabel Lucas in the forthcoming thriller flick “Careful What You Wish For,” under the direction of “Vampire Diaries” mastermind Elizabeth Allen.

Pre-production kicks off in Charlotte, North Carolina on April 22nd, though it’s not clear when Jonas will actually report for duty.

Per the synopsis, “Doug (Jonas) 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.”
