Jake Owen To Make Film Debut In 'The Friend'


Country music star Jake Owen is set to make his film debut in The Friend, which is currently filming in Fairhope, Alabama.

The Friend is directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite of Blackfish fame and based on Matthew Teague's award-winning essay for Esquire, "The Friend: Love is Not a Big Enough Word."

The cast also includes Jason Segel, Dakota Johnson, and Oscar winner Casey Affleck.

The Friend is a true story about a man whose friend moved in with him while his wife battled terminal cancer.

Owen's upcoming album Greetings from ... Jake is due out March 29. Recently, Owen revealed that he is not planning a traditional summer tour in support of the album.

"I don't have a tour put together this year," Owen told a media round table in Nashville. "I'm playing a lot of shows, but they're going to be more festival dates."
