Nicholas Hoult was interviewed by BBC Auto and the talented actor revealed something that many fans might not know about him: he is a car fanatic, a petrol head who loves fast cars even though he currently travels throughout London on ... a motorbike.
It seems the 'devious' thinking gadget genius 'Q-like' figure that he plays in the Jaguar Villain Academy campaign which is attracting attention on YouTube is not far from who he actually is. He disclosed in the interview that while he has spent the majority of his young life on television and movie sets he did not miss out on learning how to drive.
How many people can say they learned to drive at the age of 14 years while on a movie set in Africa and one of their memorable experiences practicing a 3-point turn occurred after coming face to face with not one but three Rhinos after going off the park and into the African bush? Very likely not many but Nicholas Hoult can say that he did.
In the course of the interview one question was posed about him playing the role of mad scientist/evil genius in Jaguar's Villain Academy commercial series about it being 'against type' and he revealed that while he may look quiet the truth of the matter is that he actually likes playing slightly more devious characters.
While such news may not seem like much it did get the attention of some social media entertainment observers who suspect that there are some filmmakers likely racing to the phone to contact his agents and him about potentially playing a meaty 'villain' role in a dramatic movie which would have fans, in particular his female fans enthralled even more with him as a 'bad boy' with the handsome, leading man looks.
Seems like Nicholas Hoult might be hinting at something new on the big screen with his Jaguar Villain Academy commercial and he has the attention of fans and social media entertainment observers as a result.
