33-year-old Joe Jonas, the Jonas Brothers singer who stars in the new war movie 'Devotion,' revealed on a recent episode of the 'Just for Variety' podcast that he once auditioned for the lead role in Marc Webb's 2012 film 'The Amazing Spider-Man.' Andrew Garfield was cast in the role. He also starred alongside Emma Stone in the 2014 sequel. In Tom Holland's 'Spider-Man: No Way Home' from a year ago, Garfield and Tobey Maguire, who previously played the role of Spider-Man, reprised their respective roles.

Jonas spoke about not getting cast during an audition and said, "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," People reported. Joe continued, "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." The singer of 'Cake by the Ocean' said that he loves the process though. "But you know what? I love the process of auditioning and putting yourself out there and having to prove yourself." Upon being questioned about donning the Spider-Man costume during the audition process, Jonas replied, "No, but I'm sure I had one that I would try on occasionally back in the day."

When MTV News questioned Jonas in 2010 on a red carpet about whether he'd be keen on playing Spider-Man at the time that casting was taking place, Jonas largely avoided the topic.

One user tweeted, "thank god," while posting a video clip. Another said, "He should have been at least the voice actor for Midnight Sun's Spider-Man Joe Jonas brings a lot of fans as well as Andrew Garfield." Joe's admirer wrote, "Why is everyone being mean to Joe, he literally said Andrew was the right one! He was just talking about disappointment and how you shouldn’t let it stop you - he’s also the nicest guy ever we Joe." Another user wrote, "then we got the best spiderman." One user said, "Lost the role" yeeah I'm sure it was close." "Andrew Garfield is the best spiderman," penned another. One user wrote, "I would have never admitted that." "honestly……i’m glad <3" wrote one user. A user who found Joe's remarks funny wrote, "Not in a mean way but the way Joe thought he could pull of Spider-Man is genuinely really funny."
