Nick Jonas Covers L'Uomo Vogue: 'I'm Proud To Play Gay'

The singer-actor says 'it's an honor' to be considered a gay icon.

Freshly relieved from his Scream Queens duties, Nick Jonas sat down with l'Uomo Vogue for a chat about his future projects. In addition to the James-Franco directed, frat hazing movie GOAT, Jonas talks about his desire to write for Broadway, and reflects on the meaning of his popularity among the gay community.

On his role in Kingdom, in which he plays a gay boxer, Jonas says:

"It's an honor, but I don't think of myself as an icon. There should be a lot more straight artists who don't have a problem with having gay fans. I'm really proud to play gay characters and I'll continue to do so. I think it's among the challenges of maturing as an actor".

He also cites Kevin Spacey, Daniel Craig, and Daniel Day Lewis as his role models, and mentions his brother Joe, who he says he's never felt closer to:

"Nowadays my relationship with my brothers Joe and Kevin is stronger than ever. If we had continued with the band we probably wouldn't be so close. I'm so proud of what we achieved, but now I'm concentrating on the things I'm doing for myself. And I'm grateful for their support".

Jonas also addresses comparaisons with the R'n'B heatthrob who paved the way, Justin Timberlake, and talks about his wish to develop his own theater project: "I'd like to go back to Broadway, but with something written by me. That's what I really miss."
