Interview: Nicholas Hoult on Kill Your Friends | Virgin Media
And there was us thinking Nicholas Hoult was such a nice boy. The About A Boy and X-Men: First Class actor has revealed he “really enjoyed” shooting the violent scenes for dark comedy Kill Your Friends, available now on Virgin Movies. Thankfully, it’s all pretend, but you had us worried for a moment there, Nic.
Adapted from John Niven’s cult novel, Hoult plays psychotic A&R man Steven Stelfox, who literally hacks his way through the Cool Britannia-era of the music industry. Described as “American Psycho meets The Wolf of Wall Street”, Kill Your Friends is set to a killer 90’s soundtrack of Oasis, Blur, The Prodigy and Radiohead. We sat down with Nic who told us about the preparation he did to get into the role, working with James Corden and errr…what it’s like to pretend to attack someone (he is still nice, really!). You can watch the full interview below.
