Adam Levine on the big screen — can it get any better?!

In the recently released movie trailer for Begin Again, we get to see the hunky star make his acting debut.

Adam stars as Dave, Gretta's (played by Keira Knightley) long-time boyfriend. The two college sweethearts have been songwriting partners for quite some time until Dave lands a deal with a major recording label.

The film also stars Hailee Steinfeld and Mark Ruffalo, an ex-record executive, who discovers Gretta's talent. Adam's former Voice co-coach, CeeLo Green, also appears in the film as himself.

“I certainly wouldn’t call myself an actor, but I’m trying new things, moving really slowly in that world – not biting off more than I can chew,” the Maroon 5 frontman told Entertainment News. “I don’t want to over-step my boundaries – and kind of like explore it and see if I really love it. I kind of really love it already, but we’ll see. We’ll see what happens.”

Begin Again, directed by John Carney, is set to be released July 4.
