According to MTV on Jan. 22, in an interview with Michael Shannon and Nicholas Hoult about their new film "Young Ones", Hoult talked about his experience of being starstruck on the "X-Men: Days of Future Past" set. Hoult will be reprising his role as Beast in the film where both casts that represent different versions of their younger and older selves join up in a team up against the Sentinels.
It seems that Hoult had spent less time in the make-up chair and more time enjoying himself on the set of "X-Men". He mentioned how he was a bit tongue tied when encountering Hugh Jackman during his trip to the Cerebro device. Hoult then had a bit of a flashback moment to when he was 11-years old.
"A lot of makeup, less time, more comfortable. It was very exciting to shoot. Obviously, we've got the cast from the original movies and 'First Class' all together, and Bryan says it's looking really good. I'm excited to see it. The first day, I was walking down the corridor to Cerebro with Hugh Jackman, and I looked over during the scene and I saw that it was Wolverine. That was who I grew up with when I was 11, watching these films. I had a bit of trouble getting my lines out on the first day. It was just a weird moment".
Hoult wasn't the only comic book character actor that took part in this interview, but "Man of Steel's" Michael Shannon spoke about his new movie "Midnight Special" where it takes on the similarities of another film he worked in called "Take Shelter" where he plays a father who has a genuine concern for his child.
"I'm going to start another Jeff Nichols movie, 'Midnight Special'. Jeff has really begged me not to say anything about it, but it is similar in a regard to 'Take Shelter' in that it deals with a father who is very concerned for his child and the love he has for his child and trying to protect his child, but it's also very different".
"X-Men: Days of Future Past" is scheduled to start on May 23.
