Nick Jonas Is Shirtless + Gritty in Intense ‘Kingdom’ Trailer [NSFW VIDEO]

by | PopCrush

If Nick Jonas‘ goal was to leave his squeaky-clean Disney image behind, he’s certainly on the right path.

Just days after releasing his edgy ‘Chains’ music video (which depicts his sexy new sound), the youngest Jonas Brother is getting seriously gritty in ‘Kingdom,’ a new DirecTV show that stars Jonas as a tough mixed-martial arts fighter named Nate.

The trailer, which also features fellow ‘Kingdom’ stars Matt Lauria, Frank Grillo, Jonathan Tucker, Kiele Sanchez and Joanna Going, depicts Jonas as the son of Grillo’s Alvey Kulina, who was a fighting champ in his own right and now owns an MMA gym. While some aspects of the trailer may be hard to watch for some (be warned: there are a ton of expletives and some drug use), other parts may be easier on the eyes, like the scenes where Jonas is shirtless. (You’re welcome, ladies.)

According to Variety, the show is set to center around the gym and “the relationships and addictions of the characters.” ‘Kingdom’ will premiere on DirecTV at 9 PM ET on Oct 8.

Our two cents? This is a far, far cry from ‘Camp Rock.’ And we can’t wait to see it.
