Jake Owen is taking his talents to the big screen!
Jake shared a teaser clip from the new movie "Our Friend," a film he is part of alongside Dakota Johnson, Jason Segel, and Casey Affleck. Jake explained a little bit about the film on Instagram, "OUR FRIEND 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."
Jake also went on to explain he took on this role because he loves a good challenge, "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."
"Our Friend" hits theaters and streaming on January 22nd!
