Nicholas Hoult Is 'Jack The Giant Killer'

Nicholas Hoult suits up on the cover of Esquire Korea‘s February 2011 issue.

The 21-year-old British actor, who’s dating his X-Men: First Class co-star Jennifer Lawrence, has been offered the lead in Jack the Giant Killer.

The Bryan Singer-directed drama is a “scary revisionist take on the Jack and the Beanstalk mythology,” according to Deadline.

Nicholas would star as a farmer who leads an expedition into the giants’ kingdom to rescue a kidnapped princess.

Stanley Tucci has signed on to play the villain, while Bill Nighy and John Kassir have been cast as a two-headed giant, Variety reports.

    Why does everybody look like Nate Archibald these days? Seriously – or maybe Jared is on a Nate Archibald look-alike kick…

    HE IS A VERY TALENTED ACTOR, yes yes yes !
    his performance in a single man arrested my heart :)

    Lola Says:

    maybe he has the same look as Bass and Archibald but it ends there, he’s smart and very down to earth (like all the “boring” actor of your generation)
    thank god, they still exist because if all the guys in movies were like pattison, the film industry would be lost forever

    go nick
