Sweet Nicky On The Boards
Lucky Londoners will soon get a chance to see lovely Nicholas Hoult in his West End debut. He's starring in New Boy, a gay-themed boarding school drama (is there any other kind?) based on the novel of the same name by William Sutcliffe. Buy your tickets now; the play has a limited run and the venue is small.
Nicholas, who turns 19 on December 7, is also filming A Single Man, the directing debut of fashion designer Tom Ford. Nicholas plays a "sexually ambiguous" student who is, um, interested in his gay professor (Colin Firth). I'd say that hilarity ensues, but since A Single Man is based on a novel by Christopher Isherwood I'm guessing that the hilarity is kept to a minimum.
