Joe Jones opens up about a particular audition that didn’t land him the part. The 33-year-old, who is gearing up for the release of his next film Devotion, revealed that he had auditioned to play Peter Parker in the 2012 film The Amazing Spider-Man, a role that eventually went to Andrew Garfield.

“I remember years ago when I was in for Spider-Man, and I was so, so excited, and it was the year Andrew Garfield got it,” Joe said on this week’s episode of the Just for Variety podcast . He added: “Obviously he was the right one.” Joe said he didn’t miss the part even after auditioning, saying “Right now you’re either destroyed or defeated. But you realize this person was brilliant.” Joe also confessed that since the director was Marc Webb, who was a music video director, the singer thought it would be on his side. “But I remember that was a big thing at the time, going back for callbacks. And the director was a music video director, so I was like, ‘I’ve got one in here'”

“But you know what? I like the process of auditioning and putting yourself out there and having to prove yourself,” the Grammy nominee said. When asked further if the singer would put on a Spiderman suit, Joe said, ” No, but I’m sure I had one that I used to try on from time to time.”

Joe also admitted that while music became his first calling, the pandemic has left him with no choice but to stop touring in recent years. This period also gave him a lot of time to improve his acting skills. The singer said he received huge support from his wife and Game of Thrones actor Sophie Turner in this regard. “When you have a woman like Sophie Turner, who is a phenomenal actress, [being] whoever films you and guides you through it, you have to bring your A-game,” he said.
