'The Great' Renewed for Season 2 at Hulu!

Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult‘s hit show The Great has been renewed for a second season at Hulu.

The Great is a satirical, comedic drama about the rise of Catherine the Great from outsider to the longest reigning female ruler in Russia’s history. Season One is a fictionalized, fun and anachronistic story of an idealistic, romantic young girl, who arrives in Russia for an arranged marriage to the mercurial Emperor Peter. Hoping for love and sunshine, she finds instead a dangerous, depraved, backward world that she resolves to change. All she has to do is kill her husband, beat the church, baffle the military and get the court onside. A very modern story about the past which encompasses the many roles she played over her lifetime as lover, teacher, ruler, friend, and fighter.

THR reports that season two will contain 10 episodes.

If you haven’t seen the show yet, you can get a way better sense of what it’s about by checking out the poster!

Nicholas Hoult Talks Stripping Down on Screen & Filming Sex Scenes at 17

Nicholas Hoult is opening up about what it’s like to strip down on set with a crew of people around, plus how it felt to film sex scenes at the young age of 17.

The 30-year-old actor bares it all in the recent movie True History of the Kelly Gang and he shared the scene with a real-life horse.

“I guess this character is a very relaxed sexual predator or whatever, but it’s never comfortable being naked on set, around 15, 30 or 100 people that you don’t know,” Nicholas told GQ Hype.

Nicholas was told that they were unsure how the horse would react as it had never been inside before. He said, “In my mind, I’m like, ‘This pony just got lured in here with a carrot. I’m sitting here naked. It’s looking at me like I’m a tasty snack.’ I froze… I’d like to stop having to get naked at work.”

Back when he was only 17, Nicholas had to film sex scenes for his work in the teen drama Skins. This was years before the #MeToo movement and the introduction of intimacy coordinators.

“Back then you’re a kid doing a job, and I’d done it for a long time at that point, but it’s also a weird position to be put in,” he said. “Not that they were bad experiences or anything… It comes much more from, ‘Just get this done as quickly as possible so I can be comfortable again and carry on with the part of acting I like.’ A lot of acting is pretty terrifying.”

Ozark's Esai Morales to Replace Nicholas Hoult As 'Mission: Impossible' Villain - Find Out Why

Esai Morales, known for his work in Ozark and How to Get Away with Murder, is joining the cast of Mission: Impossible 7 and Mission: Impossible 8, director Christopher McQuarrie revealed on his Instagram on Thursday (May 21).

However, Deadline is now reporting that Esai, 57, is actually replacing Nicholas Hoult in the movie in the villain role for the films.

The reason why Nicholas is being replaced? The Coronavirus pandemic has delayed production of tons of movies and television shows across the globe. As a result, the “delay put Hoult in conflict with another commitment.”

The film currently has a release date of July 23, 2021, but that could change as many films have had to alter release dates due to the global health crisis.

Nicholas Hoult Was Asked to Audition for 'X-Men' Role as This 'Family Guy' Character!

Nicholas Hoult is looking back at some of his auditions!

While talking about his career in a new video posted by GQ, the 30-year-old actor revealed that when he auditioned for X-Men: First Class, director Matthew Vaughn had a strange request.

“Matthew Vaughn asked me to do a couple of takes in an American accent as you kind of saw the character. But then also do a take doing an impression of Stewie Griffin from Family Guy,” Nicholas shared about his audition for the role of Hank McCoy/Beast.

“I had watched a lot of Family Guy in my teen years growing up, so I was like, ‘OK, I think I’ve got a pretty good impression of Stewie Griffin lined up,’” Nicholas said, with a laugh. “And so I did a whole version of the take as Stewie Griffin and sent it off. So maybe that helped me get the part? I don’t know.”

Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult star in the series, centered on Catherine The Great as she arrives in Russia for an arranged marriage to the mercurial Emperor Peter.

I knew the she-had-sex-with-a-horse propaganda,” Elle, 22, recently told Variety about the historical figure she portrays on screen. “That’s what I knew about her, which is extremely sad. But I came to learn that she’s this kind of feminist icon, and she brought enlightenment to Russia and brought female education and art and science, and really did amazing things.”

She adds that playing the empress, is “quite fun.”

“PSA. #TheGreat is probably the best thing to come out on Hulu in a whhhhiiiillllleeeee,” one fan wrote about the series while watching.

Another adds, “The first time I’m going to stream-cheat on anyone (and it’s my grandma) but I genuinely need to watch #TheGreat it’s so impossibly good.”
