You know Will Poulter, right? The guy from Son of Rambow, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and School of Comedy? Here’s a reminder of Will being a rubbish security guard.
School of Comedy skit
Anyway, he’s brilliant. And he hasn’t come down the franchise route, like some of our other young British actors (Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Robert Pattinson). Will has carved a career for himself since he was 14 by being versatile and adventurous – he’s been a middle class snob, the son of a criminal and a wannabe film maker. His voice has always been stupidly deep but he still looks like he needs fake I.D. Because we’ve seen him on TV as well as in films, there’s something accessible and approachable about him. His roles haven’t always been comic and when he’s called upon to be serious, he’s still believable and uniquely watchable. I’ve always enjoyed his characters on screen and when I met him for We’re The Millers, I just became the ultimate fan girl. I know what you’re thinking and no, I don’t fancy him. He’s waaaay too young and believe it or not, I don’t fancy every actor I meet (although I see where you’ve got that impression from). He was utterly charming and lovely, see for yourself…
My interview with Will Poulter - he didn't even mind that my palms were sweaty
I know most guys would absolutely love to snog Jennifer Aniston but watching Will and Jen get it on was THE most uncomfortable thing ever. I mean, proper gross. I think the pressure to kiss well would totally ruin the experience for you. This woman has been with Brad Pitt for goodness sake. I’ll be reviewing the film with Greg on Thursday and with Trevor on Friday and although it wasn't the funniest film I’ve ever seen, Will’s bits were the best thing in it. And now you don’t know whether I’m talking about his scenes or his bits.
