Jake Owen will be featured in his first acting role on the big screen soon.  In an interview, Owens revealed that he will have a role in “The Best Friend.”  Filming is scheduled to start in February. A synopsis of the movie reads: “After learning that his terminally ill wife has six months to live, a man welcomes the support of his best friend, who moves into their home to help out. His impact on the whole family is much greater than anyone could have imagined.”

The film also stars Dakota Johnson (“Fifty Shades of Grey”), Casey Affleck (“Manchester by the Sea”), and Jason Segal (“How I Met Your Mother.”)  

In music news, Owen also revealed that he will be releasing his new album sometime this March.
