Yes, one thing we can say about Nick Jonas is he has not been idle. He’s made a mark not just as a solo music artist but simultaneously as one of the stars of the hit series ‘Kingdom.’ So much to discuss in the interview he recently gave to E!News.

When we last saw his character, Nate Kulina, the mixed martial arts fighter in ‘Kingdom’ he had been turned away from a gay bar for being too drunk, and he appeared to be on the verge of an intimate encounter with another man in an alleyway.

Nick Jonas said, “It’s all happening.” He went on to say of his character, “He has a lot of layers to him and he’s trying to figure out exactly who he is.” Continuing, he went on to say, “It’s tough because he’s living and working in a really macho world and I think he’s just trying to figure out where he fits in in being who he is,” he continued…So it is a struggle and I’m trying to tell the story as honestly as possible with as much depth as possible.”

While he didn’t reveal details of the scene, of course, he did tell the celebrity news outlet that “it’s less about romance than it is about human needs.” He added, “That’s the best way to describe it.”

He did however talk about the physical transformation he has had to undergo to portray the character. After noting that for the previous year he had tried to put on 15 pounds of muscle, he said that his character goes down a weight class this year. He said, “I actually had to lean up—keep muscle, but keep it lean and more explosive, more athletic muscle than size. I’m not eating as much as I was. I was probably eating 5,600 calories a day. Now, it’s probably closer to 2,000 calories a day.”

As for ‘Levels’ he will be performing it for the first time live on television at the MTV Music Video Awards and he said of the performance, “I’ve got something really special planned for that.” He went on to say, “I did some funny promos on the MTV Snapchat with the Moon Babes. So there may or may not be some Moon Babe situations incorporated into my performance.”
