Nicholas Hoult challenged by Warm Bodies role

Jan 23 2013, 12:14am CST | by

Nicholas Hoult relished the challenge of staying mute in 'Warm Bodies'.

The 'About a Boy' actor stars as grunting zombie R in Jonathan Levine's touching tale about star-crossed young lovers who meet in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse and enjoyed the novelty of expressing emotion in its simplest form.

He recalled: ''A lot of the time I had to communicate just through movement, my eyes, the things I do, or the records R plays for Julie. The idea of not being able to say what you're thinking was something that was exciting for me.

''It makes you think in a slightly different way than you normally would. With the voiceover, sometimes the script supervisor read out the voiceover on set so I could hear what the character was meant to be thinking during the scene. It helps with the timing of the scene to make everything link together.''

The 23-year-old actor thinks the film - which also features John Malkovich and Teresa Palmer - puts a new spin on zombie mythology thanks to R's inherent humanity and desperate need to connect with his peers.

Nicholas told FlicksandBits.com: ''The most compelling thing about R as a character is his want and need to connect. He wants to connect with the other zombies in the airport, even though they've got nothing to really say to him and they can't even say their names. He wants to connect with them to feel alive.

''That's one of the most human instincts ever - to want to feel a part of something and to connect with another human. I have to try to make an audience care about and root for this zombie, that was very interesting to me. In the script he was very funny and eloquent in his voiceover, so there was a charm about him and a humoir as well.''

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ to Focus on Mystique, Close Out ‘First Class’ Trilogy

Oct 3 2014 5:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past were really the tales of Charles and Erik, two men who are almost as bad at being mortal enemies as they are at being BFFs. But according to Simon Kinberg, X-Men: Apocalypse could focus on a completely different X-relationship. The screenwriter hinted that Jennifer Lawrence‘s Mystique could come front and center in the upcoming movie, which he says will close out the trilogy started b ...

‘Young Ones’ Exclusive Clip: You've Never Seen This Side of Nicholas Hoult Before

Oct 2 2014 3:22pm CDT | Source: movies.com

So far in his career Nicholas Hoult has more or less played nice guys or heartthrobs. Heck, even when he’s playing a monster, like Beast in X-Men: First Class or a zombie in Warm Bodies, he’s still a nice-guy heartthrob. That’s not exactly the case in his latest movie, the grim sci-fi tale Young Ones. Directed by Jake Paltrow (Gwyneth Paltrow's younger brother), Young Ones depicts a future in which water has become an exceedingly rare resource on Earth. I ...
