Maroon 5 frontman, and the object of endless affection, Adam Levine will make his big screen acting debut alongside Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo in John Carney’s Begin Again. The movie stars Knightley and Levine as a songwriting duo and college sweethearts, until Levine’s character leaves her once he becomes famous.

Knightley is then left reeling and alone before being approached by a record executive (Ruffalo), who offers her a shot at fame. Sure Levine might come off as a bit of a scumbag in the movie, but that won’t stop him from being one of the most beloved men on the planet.

You can watch the trailer for Begin Again in the video player above before the movie hits theaters on July 4.
