Joe Jonas Lost Spider-Man Role To Andrew Garfield

Joe Jonas plays a pilot in the just-released Korean War drama Devotion but he almost took to the skies in a very different manner — in a very different movie ten years ago.


In an interview with Variety, Jonas discussed his audition for Andrew Garfield’s portrayal of Peter Parker in filmmaker Marc Webb’s 2012 superhero film The Amazing Spider-Man.


The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man: No Way Home, both released in 2014, would feature the British actor Garfield reprising his role.


The actor-musician was asked whether he could recall a part that devastated him when the Jonas Brothers member didn’t win it, and he responded, “I can name probably a couple. In the moment, you’re destroyed or you’re defeated. But you realize this person was brilliant. I remember years ago I was up for Spider-Man and I was so, so excited and it was the year Andrew Garfield got it.”


“Obviously, he was the right one,” he continues, “but I remember that was a big thing at the time, going back for callbacks and the director used to be a music video director. So I was like, ‘I got an in here.’ But you know what? I love the process of auditioning and putting yourself out there and having to prove yourself.”
