    If this is true, it’ll be great! He’s so nice and handsome! I hope Adam does not lose his focus on music. I Love Maroon 5!

  • Lis

    Ugh he CAN’T act.

  • jez

    I feel so despondent now. I’m so fed up of celebrities getting roles. Hollywood needs to learn how to look after it’s actors, you know the ones that actually study and have a genuine passion for the craft.

  • Leenah

    I like Adam..but him being an actor? I don’t see that..there are so many good actors that need a break and those who get the movie parts are the non-talented ones,Adam is a great musician but he should keep it at that.

  • Maha

    Hmm, nice. Something new for him, I guess he needs it after staying with the music side of entertainment for so long, it’s bound to get ‘same old same old’ at some point.
    Hopefully he won’t lose his focus on music though. Perhaps Maroon 5 is headed for a little hiatus? They’ve been touring like craaazzzy recently.

  • ughhhh

    Is little Gimbo talking out of his vadge again?

  • Useful Idiot

    He is just being rewarded for his constant attacks on Fox News.

    Guys, both of these roles- the movie role and the TV show role, are both guest starring roles. Something for him to try his hand at, it’s nothing big. It’s not like he’s snatching someone else’s bread and butter.

    John Carney’s Once with Glen Hansard was such a lovely, little movie with great music and atmosphere. Adam Levine is completely different category. I don’t know if he can act, but I don’t see him as a lead in a movie like this. And I hope that if he’s really going to play that role, someone else will write songs, because Glen Hansard wrote all the songs in Once and they were the strongest part of the movie. Adam is not a bad singer, but I don’t like his song-writing. His songs are usually generic pop with cliche lyrics.

  • http://justjared Simple Facts

    well actually he is. He is taking someone’s chance that is an actor and cannot get a break. An actor gets a job when they are seen on the screen either it is supportive or lead rolls but they need the chance. Adam should just stick to what he knows or does which is music.

  • Maha

    @Simple Facts:
    The role seems tailor made for someone who is actually a musician himself. I’d love to see what he does in the role- and you don’t really know for sure that he can’t act. He might just surprise you and turn out to be a decent actor.

  • Maha

    Josephine, it’s the other way ’round with me… I like his singing, but I like his songwriting way more.
    Granted Maroon 5 has taken a complete turn this year, with their new album being nothing but generic pop (I hope they’ve had their fun and go back to their trademark sounds), but songs like She Will Be Loved, Wasted Years (the older version, not the new pop) The Sun, Sweetest Goodbye, Sunday Morning, are some beautiful works, lyrically, and pleasantly memorable.
    All these songs fit nowhere near your description of his songwriting.

  • Mary

    On one have I totally love Adam and I like that he is branching out and trying new things. And on the other I’m strongly hoping he doesn’t loose his focus when it comes to the music because he is a talented musician and a great singer and we can’t afford to loose the few talented musicians we have out there that are in the mainstream. I hope the same thing doesn’t happen to him that happened to Justin Timberlake. Once Justin got the movie roles he seemed to leave his music career in the dust and he was such a great musician, singer, song-writer, producer, etc….

  • L.

    He’s so talented and it’s great he’s branching out. He is also writing comedy for NBC. So much he does, and so well. He’s a star and a true one. People who dislike what he does… Are you green?
    Adam, you’re great and keep going!!!

  • Serena

    This is amazing to know!
    Adam we love you!
    You will be great in everything you do, acting included.
    Can’t wait for AHS role and hopefully also that Glee guesting role you’ve been talking with Murphy about.
    So much Adam, never enough Adam for me!

  • Serena


    Adam’s songwriting is actually excellent pop and pop infused with funk and R&B.

    You are probably not very familiar with any of it, or you just have that “hipster” attitude which makes you dislike successful recording artists.

    Adam has a great talent, his singing is always on point, and he exudes sexiness.

    He’s magnetic and captivating.

    And that especially when he sings live.

    If you can’t appreciate all that, is your loss, in all honesty.

  • Teri

    How can you say that when you never seen him act before. Give him a chance than judge, don’t pre-judge
    I think it will be interesting to see him do this.
    also I don’t understand why people are so harsh to him for experiment new things, just cuz his wants to branch out his career. I don’t see anything wrong with that,if hes good than great. Let him continue.
    P.S going by how much he loves music I’m sure hes not gonna let go of that ;)

  • sam

    He’s finally getting some meat on those bones I see…

  • Sandy!

    Great news!
    Adam Levine is just perfect in anything he does! However I hope he doesn’t leave his natural and big talent: music!

  • Elle

    UGH! STOP letting singers and models try to “act”! they’re ALWAYS terrible! give the acting jobs to people who are trying to become actors! it’s so frustrating to see these roles just given away to these kinds of people when there are SO MANY really talented actors who just haven’t been “discovered” yet!

  • megan

    really excited to see adam act! total hottie!

  • bella

    I’m just a kid but Maroon 5 was my first band I’ve ever loved and supported. I hope his acting career does well for him but music is what he does best. Adam is my biggest influence

    Check this video out:

    I just entered the Maroon 5 “Songs About Jane” contest. I hope it goes well.

  • JMDubs

    Hmmm… Kinda sounds like he’ll do anything to be in the spotlight. I like him a lot, but I wish he’d just focus on his music. I heard the reviews for Overexposed were horrible (EW has a new one out there). He seems to be a bit distracted.
    Even so, I’m sure the part in this movie is very small (probably only a few scenes in the beginning of the movie) so it will be interesting to see how he does.

  • jm

    uh ok so dont rip on Justin Timberlake, or Tim Magraw for dissing music to act, but lets jump on Adam. They already act in their videos so acting may be natural for them, since they have to act in the videos. Adam has a lead role in this movie, and the fact that he is a musician is perfect. I dont want to see a music movie with someone who cant sing,,, look at Rock of Ages, and Country strong, at least Adam wont need any training. He can do whataver he wants, and if you dont like it, dont see it, if you dont like the music dont listen to it! SIMPLE AS THAT!

  • Jessy

    I love Adam. He’s my favorite singer,personaly I hope he gets the role. It would be so cool if he could be in a movie with Ryan Reynolds. I’ve been waiting for someone or him to suggest being in a movie, and hopefully he’ll be singing which would make the movie even better.Adam’s music is moving and sometimes calming. If your upset or something, if you pay attention and understand what he’s saying. Especially in his newer song payphone. Talking about how much he’s done for her and she just screws him over. In his video all of the bruises and bloody cuts, are showing you what love can do to you, which is beat you up. LOOK, WHAT I’M TRYING TO EXPLAIN IS YOU DON’T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT HE’S GOOD AND BAD AT. THAT’S YOUR OPINION AND WHO EVER ELSES. SORRY MY MESSAGE IS SO LONG I CAN GET CARRIED AWAY SOMETIMES. LOVE YA ADAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
