Nicholas Hoult at the ‘Jack the Giant Slayer’ premiere: would you hit it?

Here are some new photos from last night’s Hollywood premiere of Jack the Giant Slayer. Considering the film was directed by Bryan Singer, I should be more into it, right? Singer cares about his fan-boys and fan-girls, and Singer would never do anything unworthy. But I just can’t get jazzed about this film – it looks boring. It even stars some of my favorite dudes in the world – Ewan McGregor (who was not at the premiere), Nicholas Hoult, Bill Nighy and Stanley Tucci are all in the film.

Considering I’m feeling extremely punky this week (it’s some kind of stomach virus, I think), I’m not feeling particularly lustful for young Mr. Hoult in these photos. That’s more about me, though – I could be looking at my love Michael Fassbender and I would still be feeling a mix of nausea and dizziness. I’m not sure why Hoult is keeping his hair so short these days – surely it’s not for a movie? I think he looks better when his hair is a little longer.

Hoult’s next movie will be the sequel to X-Men: First Class, called X-Men: Days of Future Past. Hoult will be reuniting with Fassbender and James McAvoy, plus Bryan Singer is coming back to direct this one, and Singer already got Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart and Peter Dinklage on board too. I’m telling you… this movie is going to be AMAZING. Oh, and Hoult is also going to be reunited with his ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence too. When Us Weekly asked him about the film, Hoult said: “I’m really excited to go back into it and to work more with those guys. Bryan Singer is going to direct this time, so it would be good to work for him again. I kept in touch with most of the cast. It’s really nice when there’s a job that you know you’re all going back to and you kind of have a good catch up. We had a lot of fun making the first one, lots of great memories, so it’ll be a nice little reunion.” Do you think J-Law and Hoult will get back together? I think they might!

    His eyes are so gloriously blue!! Yum!

  2. marie says:

    absolutely, without a doubt-no question.

  3. Tessa says:

    No. Can’t. He’s Maaaaarcuus. I would be afraid Killing Me Softly would come on the radio and I’d have to make a run for it.

  4. Ellie66 says:

    He looks like a “hot” Sheldon Cooper from Big Bang Theory. :D

  5. smartyparty says:

    Nope nope. Ever since he played Tony on skins that is all I see hahaah Tony. It was so funny when Tony got in an accident and then was all messed up in the head, the melodrama on Skins is amazing.

  6. BW says:

    He looks like someone painted stubble on a baby face doll.

    I’d do Bill Nighy, though. He always looks like he’s about to whisper a dirty joke in your ear.

  7. Miss Kiki says:

    Gahh he’s so beautiful it almost hurts.I’m pretty sure everything I want to do to him is illegal.

  8. Vivian says:

    Alternate Sheldon from BBT lol; cracked me up even though I disagree. Although I love his eyes and have spot for him…but ya forever Marcus lol

  9. truthful says:

    nahhhhh, looks like we wouldn’t want to get mussed.

    no hunger here.

    I love the guy in the blue siut though, his acting is immpecable.

  10. Just Me says:

    No idea what else he’s in, but I saw him in Warm Bodies several weeks ago. I will never not see him as a Zombie. No thanks.

  11. Birdie says:

    I am usually not into pretty guys, but he is my thing. He is so tall and just lovely in interviews and he was with the great Jennifer Lawrence (great taste)! I hope they’ll get back together.

  12. mia girl says:

    I favor him for sure, just not sure if it has reached “hit it” status.

    Re: he and Lawrence, I agree they may get back together. I suspect that it’s less about them breaking-up and more about separating for a while to concentrate on their professional lives. They split right before the promotion of his two films and her dive into award season. I like them together.

  13. oliveo says:

    I’d put money on him & Jennifer Lawrence getting back together. He at least owes us that since we never got a Skins movie :’(

  14. Shira says:

    No freaking way, CAN NOT stop seeing that wimpy About A Boy kid in him.

    As for him and Jennifer getting back together, not gonna put my money on it. First of all, you don’t break up a 2-year-long relationship for nothing. I don’t think it was about the distance between them because they stayed together for relatively long time for a couple who doesn’t live in the same continent. Also, I read people suggesting they broke up to focus on their careers and will now reunite?
    Um, no.
    If they didn’t break up before THG promotional tour no reason for it to happen now because of his new movie. Also, do you really think that now – as an Oscar winner with a schedule booked through 2015 – Jennifer will focus LESS on her career?

  15. LadyMTL says:

    Although I normally adore the dark hair light eyes combo, this guy is creeping me out. I don’t know if it’s the too-red lips, the intense stare…I’m getting the heebie-jeebies so I’ll take a pass.

  16. andrea says:

    I look at him and I know he’s supposed to be hot, but I just don’t see him that way. For me, he needs a few more years to grow into his looks.

  17. Jcamp11 says:

    I love Hoult. I prefer the short hair, too, but he had it buzzed all the way to nearly bald for Fury Road that wrapped before Christmas. NH was in Namibia for SEVEN months filming that Mad Max sequel. Long distance relationship poison. It looks like both he and J Law will be filming in the US and/or England for the next few projects, so maybe a reconciliation is in the mix. I hope so. I think they are both great. At least somebody keep Leo Dicaprio away from her!

    • Shira says:

      Jennifer is smart, I’m sure she knows to keep Leo away.
      And Bradley’s good friends with the two of them, surely he knows Leo well enough to not let him hit on Jennifer, who apparently he sees as a sister.

      • Liv says:

        Let’s hope so. Cooper said that it’d be ridiculous to think he would date Jennifer because he could be her father. Leo’s 2 month older than Cooper, I looked it up yesterday ;-) So there’s that. Can’t imagine Cooper would be thrilled seeing DiCaprio dating her. We all know where this would end. Nowhere.

      • Shira says:

        @Liv, I’m still in denial over that denial hoping it was a PR move gone wrong – after all they do have another movie coming out in which they play a married couple that has some steamy scenes in it, so letting people know he’s like her father was a bad idea – but I just want to point out that Jennifer never said Bradley was too old for her so that shouldn’t be the thing stopping her from dating Leo. OK no, sorry, my mind went to a bad place. Jennifer will NOT be dating Leo.

      • Liv says:

        ;-) Let’s talk again in a few weeks!

  18. elkiddo says:

    He is sooo good looking. And imho he and jlaw makes a great couple.

    But when he wears his hair short like this, he is (disturbingly) giving me kellan lutz psycho murderer vibe, anyone else sees the resemblance? Not attitude-wise though bless him.

  19. Jenna says:

    Still a huge “HELL NAH”! But he seems nice. :)

  20. my .02 says:

    Maybe it’s just the short haircut (I’m not familiar with him), but his forehead is huge and his chin comes to this tiny point – it’s freakish.

  21. Cam S says:

    That is one tall glass of milk. Bill Nighy is quite tall and lanky and Hoult looks taller. Must have eaten his Wheaties.

  22. T.Fanty says:

    His eyes are pretty, but no. Too young, and the simple mention of Ewan in this post is enough to establish that young Mr. Hoult is but a mere boy in a world of hot men.

    On a side note, his name really doesn’t suit him. Don’t ask me why.

  23. Sarah says:

    With longer hair and no facial hair, he looks so much younger and it would make me feel wrong (Even though I am only 5 years older than him). But in these pictures, I have to say, if I was not married, yes! ;) Or if I was allowed a Freebie 5, he would be on it.

  24. I Choose Me says:

    Although I enjoy looking at him, nah. Stanley Tucci or Bill Nighy however can give me a call.

  25. Faye says:

    Hoult is too much of a pretty boy for my tastes. Even though he’s far too old for me, I’d take Bill Nighy. You just get the idea he’d not only be great at sex, but *fun.*

    I’ll always love him for his lines in Love Actually. “I had Britney Spears once. She was great. Just kidding.” *waits a beat* . . .”She was rubbish!”

  26. Victoria says:

    OMG this kid is HAUTE HAUTE HAUTE! He needs to be CUMBY combined in some venture resulting in pure heaven! He and CUMBY would be almost too much to look at, at once. He could be CUMBY’S little brother or some such.. I am DROOLING at the mere idea of this comely concoction! Yes indeed. Well done young man! Now get over here and do what you do best. After all, a cougar’s favorite meal is young tender meat.. RAWR!

  27. InvaderZim says:

    Nicholas H looks like Brandon Flowers’ brother. Baby-faced to the max.d

    Edit: But in a good way!

  28. Tig says:

    I think he’s cute, but not sexy. “Jack” doesn’t look too good- saw the trailer and thought-” why are all these great actors in this lame movie”? It’s like “Beautiful Creatures 2.0″- great cast in search of a movie!

  29. Turtle Dove says:

    He’s too young for my tastes, but he’s very, very handsome. The eyes have it.

  30. emma says:

    mmmmm Tony! loved him on skins. I’d hit it.

  31. lexi lane says:

    he is cute, but no i wouldnt
