Joe Jonas on Lending His Acting and Music to Devotion

Joe Jonas is a man of many talents, and he lent more than one of them to Devotion, the Korean War movie starring Jonathan Majors that debuted this week at Toronto International Film Festival.

In the movie, Jonas not only plays a supporting role as Marty Goode (Vanity Fair’s review out of TIFF says Jonas “shines” in his scenes), but also co-wrote and performed the song “Not Alone,” which plays over the movie’s closing credits. He performs the song alongside Khalid, and Ryan Tedder and Harv are co-writers on the track, which Jonas says was inspired by the movie’s main characters, Jesse and Daisy Brown, who are based on real people and played in the film by Majors and Christina Jackson

“I had a conversation with our director J.D. [Dillard] and he asked me to take a stab at writing the end credit song,” Jonas tells VF. “I was honored for the opportunity, so I wanted to put together some incredible collaborators such as Ryan Tedder and Harv along with my good friend Khalid to help bring this song to life. What made this truly special to me was being able to bring my passions of acting and music together for this film. It was a truly special experience to combine the two, which are normally very separate hats for me, and I was honored to do so.”

Jonas stopped by Vanity Fair’s studio at the Toronto International Film Festival to play a game of Six Degrees of Separation. Spoiler alert: he didn’t need all six.
