Nick Jonas has said it's his "dream" to portray Bruce Springsteen in a movie. 

The singer, who has forged a movie career in films such as Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, said The Boss has a "special place" in his heart. 

"Growing up in New Jersey, Bruce obviously has a special place in my heart and my creative life," he told Zane Lowe on Apple Music. 

"It is a dream of mine to play him in a movie one day and tell his story in some way that would be honouring to him and that he could be involved with." 

Jonas added that Spingsteen’s commitment to entertaining his fans at his live shows has inspired him in his performances.

"I could only hope to have a career as lengthy as his and as important as his has been to people," Jonas said. 

"And that was the thing that really stood out to me after going to a show is just, he’s been a champion for his fans his entire career, and you see it at the shows. It’s about them. Every moment’s about them, them having the best experience, best night of their week, their life, their year, whatever." 

"Me and the brothers kind of said that about our shows," he added.

"It’s like, we always want to make sure that our artistic vision comes through and that we’re saying what we want to say, but we also want this to be the best night of our fans’ week or month or year.

"So we try to bring that same energy and that’s all thanks to Bruce’s model."
