"He's the biggest rock star of all of them. He's got swag like Justin Bieber and he rocks out like Mick Jagger, so he's kind of a combination of the two. He's kind of like the ultimate rock star. Watch out, Justin Timberlake!"
-Singer, actress and "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam" star Demi Lovato, discussing co-star Frankie Jonas, the youngest of the four Jonas Brothers and the one often referred to as "Bonus Jonas." Lovato compared Frankie to both Bieber and Timberlake on the red carpet of the "Camp Rock 2" premiere in New York, and she had plenty of praise for the youngest Jonas sibling.
The nine-year-old Frankie may be young, and "Camp Rock 2" represents his first major live action film (he provided voice work in "Ponyo" a few years back), but his goals are clear. "I would like to pursue my acting career and do a little music in the middle," he told MTV News. "It's my first live action [film] and to have my brothers with me is way more exciting because they make you feel more comfortable."
And he's even a little wise beyond his years. When asked about what advice his already-veteran older brothers gave him, he could recite the best bit he was given. "They've given me a great one that my dad gave to them and they passed on to me during the filming of 'Camp Rock.' It says, 'Live like you're at the bottom, even if you're at the top,' " he explained. "Remember where you came from."
You can catch Frankie, Joe, Kevin and Nick (as well as Lovato) when "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam" premieres on the Disney Channel this Friday, September 3.
