With 'The Disaster Artist,' James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau—an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable—into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy's cult-classic disasterpiece 'The Room' (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), 'The Disaster Artist' is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend—and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you're doing.

The album, which included the platinum hit "Close" featuring Tove Lo, debuted as the #1 selling album of the week. In 2017, Nick released a new single “Find You” off of his upcoming album. Jonas also co-wrote an original song titled “Home” for the movie FERDINAND, released by FOX Animation.

He also appeared in a guest-starring role in the Fox's horror-comedy series, "Scream Queens." Jonas starred in the gritty television show "Kingdom," a mixed martial arts drama that premiered in the fall of 2014. Jonas can currently be seen alongside Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black in JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE, Sony’s reimagining of 1995’s JUMANJI. The film has passed over 650 million worldwide in box office sales within its first month.
