Jake Owen makes his film debut playing Aaron in Our Friend, which stars Dakota Johnson, Casey Affleck and Jason Segal playing in select theaters and on demand Jan 22nd

The movie revolves around a husband whose friend steps up to help care for his terminally ill wife.

Jake says, “I’ve always been intrigued by challenging myself to do things that I’m not necessarily comfortable with. No one hired me for this because they saw me act in a film before. Think they’re putting faith in me that I can do this, and that gives me some energy.”
