Jake Owen Is Headed To The Big Screen In Upcoming Movie 'Our Friend'


We all know country artist Jake Owen for making music, but now for the first time ever he'll be starring in a major motion picture set to release in 2022.

Jake Owen has a part in the upcoming film Our Friend. Owen said, “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 film to social media and added, "Wanted to share a little clip of a film I was a part of..."

Owen continues, "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
