Jake Owen is a pro at making music, but now he’s in a major motion picture for the very first time!
He has a role in the upcoming movie Our Friend.
Jake talked about his film debut, “I’ve never been in a ‘movie’ before so I won’t lie.. sitting down in front of Dakota Johnson, Jason Segel, and Casey Affleck and acting like I knew what I was doing, was a bit of a challenge. I’ve always loved a good challenge.”
He also posted a preview of the movie Our Friend with the message, “Wanted to share a little clip of a film I was a part of.”
Our Friend, which is out in theaters and available on streaming January 22, tells the inspiring and extraordinary true story of the Teague family—journalist Matt (Casey Affleck), his vibrant wife Nicole (Dakota Johnson) and their two young daughters—and how their lives are upended by Nicole’s heartbreaking diagnosis of terminal cancer. As Matt’s responsibilities as caretaker and parent become increasingly overwhelming, the couple’s best friend Dane Faucheux (Jason Segel) offers to come and help out. As Dane puts his life on hold to stay with his friends, the impact of this life altering decision proves greater and more profound than anyone could have imagined.
