In a cover story for L'Uomo Vogue, Nick Jonas talks about his gay roles.

The 23-year-old Jonas currently plays gay in two television series.

On DirecTV's Kingdom, now in its second season, Jonas plays MMA fighter Nate Kulina, while on Fox's horror-comedy Scream Queens he plays Boone, a member of the Dickie Dollar Scholars.

“It's an honor, but I don't think of myself as an icon,” Jonas said of his role on Kingdom. “There should be a lot more straight artists who don't have a problem with having gay fans. I'm really proud to play gay characters and I'll continue to do so. I think it's among the challenges of maturing as an actor.”

Jonas also names Kevin Spacey, Daniel Craig and Daniel Day Lewis as his role models.
