The Jonas Brothers star revealed during an appearance on the Just for Variety podcast that he auditioned to play Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Marc Webb's 2012 movie but lost out to Garfield. "In the moment, you're destroyed or you're defeated. But you realise this person was brilliant," he shared. "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.” Joe Jonas / Just for Variety podcast.
