All Grown Up Nicholas Hoult To Star In ‘Jack The Giant Killer’

Friday, February 11 by

Nicholas Hoult, the adorable child star of About A Boy, tragically not afflicted with a disorder that keeps him looking like a child his entire life, is now a full-fledged adult male actor. He’s in the upcoming X-Men: First Class as the Beast, fitting because in many ways puberty is the transition from lovable scamp to horrifying beast, and now he’s set to star in Jack the Giant Killer after a lengthy testing process, fitting because he is a giant.

In case you’re unaware, the movie is “a scary revisionist take on the Jack and the Beanstalk mythology” in which “Hoult will play a farmer who leads an expedition into the giants’ kingdom to rescue a kidnapped princess.” If I were him, I’d be concerned at the princess recoiling in horror at the sight of my grotesque, now fully-matured features.
