British actor Nicholas Hoult is one of the top British actors in Hollywood and there has even been talk of him potentially being a future James Bond. However, while Nicholas is clearly talented, it seems that there is one chink in his armour, as Nicholas struggles to do accents. He has revealed how he auditioned for the role of Prince Caspian in The Chronicles of Narnia sequel, with humorous results.
Hoult explained, "There are hundreds you audition for and give terrible auditions for. Sometimes I walk out and I’m like, ‘Wow, that was embarrassing.’"
He added, "One of my all-time worst [auditions] was definitely Prince Caspian. They asked if I could do a Hispanic accent. I was like, ‘What would I base that on?’ They were like, ‘Have you seen Shrek? Puss in Boots.’ I was doing the scene, but in my head before saying each line, I was trying to do my Antonio Banderas impression, saying [in a Desperado voice] ‘I am Prince Caspian!’ It was horrendous. It sounded more like Borat."
The career of Nicholas Hoult is at an all time high and he has some impressive movies coming out in 2014, including Young Ones, Mad Max: Fury Road and X-Men: Days of Future Past.
