Soft-spoken, sweetheart, Nicholas Hoult took a couple of minutes to talk about his upcoming zombie rom com “Warm Bodies” which is set to hit theaters February 1st.
Congratulations on this, “Warm Bodies” is so much fun, sweet and interesting to watch. So, how did this movie come about for you?
Nicholas: About this time, two years ago, I was in L.A. while we were filming X-Men pick-ups, so I read the script and it was from a pile of scripts…and this was the only script that I read through in one sitting, just right through it and I thought this could be something that’s fun and entertaining and special and still get to act in it.
Could you visualize the world when you read the script or was it more real for you when you finally started filming?
Nicholas: I couldn’t visualize the world. I could visualize the character or the essence of the character; I could visualize that very clearly. But, not the world and I think the production designer did a great job. Montreal was really a great city to work in to give you the scale and working in Mirabel airport, which is abandoned now, and no one uses, and the way they transformed everything to look like a post apocalyptic world. Then the make-up goes, a great make-up artist and the costume that was grimy, and then I was like, ‘right, I’m getting into this now.’

Every year brings a crop of hot new stars to watch. Sometimes those stars exceed expectations like Jennifer Lawrence, who scored last year with The Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook. And sometimes they fall flat on their faces. I’m looking at you Taylor Kitsch.
For 2013, the first up-and-comer who gets to prove himself is Nicholas Hoult. You might remember him as the precocious kid from the 2002 Hugh Grant movie About a Boy. Hoult, now 23, has appeared in a slew of films since then, most notably X-Men First Class, where he played Beast.
But in 2013, he’ll headline two reasonably big films: Warm Bodies and Jack The Giant Slayer. In Warm Bodies, which hits theaters in February, he’ll play a zombie in love. Then in March, he’ll play Jack in a modern take on the classic fairy tale, Jack and the Beanstalk.
Neither film is a slam dunk. Although Warm Bodies is getting some momentum, it’s a tough sell beyond fans of the book. Jack has a pretty snazzy new trailer and it smartly hits theaters in March, a month that used to be a Hollywood dead zone until The Hunger Games proved that people will go to the theaters at that time of year if there’s something worth seeing.

Nicholas Hoult (Skins, X-Men: First Class) tells us what it’s like to play a hot zombie in unusual love story Warm Bodies, and how eating brains isn’t gory if it’s well shot…
How would you describe the character of R?
The most compelling thing about R is his 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 can’t even say their names. He wants to connect with Julie and 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.”
What made this part stand out for you?
The idea of this zombie who I have to try to make an audience care about and root for, that was interesting to me. In the script, he was very funny and eloquent in his voiceover, so there was a charm about him and a humour as well.
