AceShowbiz – Actor Nicholas Hoult has shared his strangest audition experience in a new clip looking back on his career.
During the video for GQ magazine, the star, 30, 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 (to) 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.’ “
He added, “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.”
