You might recognize him as the young Hank McCoy from “X-Men: Days Of Future Past”, or from his time playing a zombie with heart in “Warm Bodies”, but if you’re unfamiliar with the work of Nicholas Hoult you’re about to get a face-full with his two latest projects – “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Equals”.

During his cowboy hat and tequila soaked time at SXSW, Rick Campanelli also got the chance to speak with Hoult at The Boffin’s Lab Powered by Jaguar and WIRED Insider party and the actor opened up about his experience on set of the highly anticipated “Mad Max” reboot.

“I’m just glad everyone’s going to get to see it,” the actor tells Rick. “We filmed it two and a half years ago, and it’s been in director George Miller’s…it’s been in his mind for many years more than that, so it’s exciting.”

One of the things that got the young actor’s engine revving was the cars. “My car in [the film] is a V8 hot rod,” he explains continuing on about why he “got chills” on set.

He’s maybe too young to take on the role of Bond quite yet, and is yet to be tapped for a role in the ever-expanding Fast and the Furious film series, but enterprising British actor Nicholas Hoult loves the feeling of his hands gripping a steering wheel around a curve.

“I’ve always been a bit of a petrol head,” says Hoult, who’s recently starred in X-Men’s First Class series as Hank McCoy, aka Beast. His laundry list of upcoming projects could be considered evidence enough, with high-speed thriller Autobahn and the remake of Mad Max, a post-apocalyptic epic based in a world that kills for gasoline, releasing later this year.

In just a few moments of conversation it’s clear that Hoult’s affinity for the open road is not just a passing fancy or part-time enchantment having just returned from a long, solo road trip through the English countryside.

Hoult will be in Austin, Texas tonight for the public reveal of Jaguar’s XE S sports sedan at The Boffin’s Lab during SXSW. But first, the London-based thespian sat down with us to talk about the thrill of racing down a virgin stretch of the Autobahn, and what it’s like to have a few hundred horses sitting beneath you when a fan revs their engine at the line.

You’ve just filmed a couple of projects that involve driving in unconventional circumstances. What’s one of the more intense terrains you’ve encountered?
I’ve driven both the Jaguar XF and the F5 in Finland, on a frozen lake actually. They handled that very well I can say with authority. I got to get taken out in the F-Type V8 on the Top Gear test track, which was just insane. That thing flies and it sounds incredible.

Nicholas was a guest on tonight’s episode of “Top Gear”. He was the “Star in a reasonably priced car”. While the interview has not appeared online yet I did come across a video of his lap. The quality is not great but be sure to check it out!

Last fall, audiences were captivated by the outrageous adventures of Amazing Amy in David Fincher’s “Gone Girl,” so much so that it appears many forgot about another Gillian Flynn adaptation that has been in the can for a while now: namely “Dark Places,” starring Charlize Theron. While you might think an A-list leading, big screen take on a best-seller from a hotly buzzed author might warrant a bigger campaign, the movie is getting ready to open overseas in just over a month, and the first international poster has arrived.

Corey Stoll, Tye Sheridan, Chloe Grace Moretz, Nicholas Hoult, Sterling Jerins and Christina Hendricks co-star in the movie that follows Libby Day (Theron), who as a teenager witnesses the murder of her family and testifies against her brother when he is tried for the crime. 25 years later, Libby is brought before the secretive, crime-solving Kill Club which wants to uncover the truth. Gilles Paquet-Brenner (“Sarah’s Key”) directed the flick, and we’ll soon see if his work measures up to Fincher’s obsessive attention to detail.

“Dark Places” has its premiere screening in Paris on March 30th and opens in France on April 8th.
