Much has been made about Nick Jonas growing up in 2014—both physically and emotionally—and now the singer says he's ready to attempt new challenges in his career; challenges many straight males wouldn't. 

In his new TV drama Kingdom, the JoBro plays the complicated character Nate, a martial arts fighter who viewers found out at the Season 1 finale is most definitely gay. Talking up Season 2, Nick and Kingdom creator Byron Balasco confirmed that Nate's sexuality would be further explored. "A man has needs," Balasco said at a recent Q&A for the show. "It's a deep internal struggle and it’s very difficult for this character."

When asked more explicitly what that meant—a.k.a. are we going to see man-on-man sex scenes?—the "Teacher" singer added further thoughts:

"[Nate] is not really okay with what’s happening at the moment...it's going to go there I'm sure. It's an incredibly important story on all levels—acceptance isn't the first word in this [fighting] world. I'm willing to go on the journey wherever it takes me...I'm committed."

The comment comes after a year of Nick actively spending time embracing and interacting with his gay fanbase, a decision he said he wished more straight male acts made a priority. It's clearly worked in his favor with Jonas' solo debut spawning a Top 10 album and the hits "Jealous" and "Chains," both of which charted higher than any Jonas Brother single has in the last five years.

Nick keeps winning by setting himself apart from his rivals, being unafraid to embrace new challenges and generally being an awesome human all around. Consider our DVRs set for Season 2 of Kingdom.
