Who was that guy who was in that thing?

24 Mar

Saturday my mom and I went to see Les Miserables at the cheap theater. Before the movie there was a preview that had some actor I recognized from something but I couldn’t remember what. So I said to my mom “who is that guy?”  And she didn’t know either. Normally I would crack open the cell phone and look it up on IMDB but we were in the middle of  movie theater obviously so I had turned off my phone because it’s polite, right? So I said “I’ll just look it up after the movie.”

Of course, after the movie I was all weepy because it was Les Miserables and (spoiler alert) IT’S VERY SAD. So I completely forgot about the preview with that guy. That is, until a little while ago I was watching a TV show that reminded me I was supposed to look up some movie to find out who that guy was. The only problem is now I have no idea what the preview was.

So I texted my mom “What was the preview we  were watching where we were both like ‘who was that actor?'” And she was all “way to ruin a good night’s sleep” and “you should ask Twitter because Twitter knows everything.” I asked Twitter and Twitter was like “…you’re kidding right? We’re just going to pretend you didn’t ask that.”

I might just have to go back to the theater and watch the previews again, or I might never know who that guy was. Unless any of you happen to know? Didn’t think so.

You guys are completely unhelpful.

UPDATE: Thanks to my hero Jenel, I have the answer. The preview was for Jack the Giant Slayer and that guy is Nicholas Hoult who I totally know because I have seen X-Men: First Class about eleven bazillion times. I just didn’t recognize him without the lab coat, or all the blue skin & fur & stuff.

The internet is a bloody amazing place.

      Thanks for reading & commenting! The funniest thing is usually my mom knows exactly why I am talking about & has the answer. So if I turn to her and say “what was that movie where the good guy who killed a bad guy with just a book and a towel?” She would immediately respond “Oh you mean The Bourne Ultimatum.”
      And even though she couldn’t remember what the preview was when I texted her, I knew that she knew exactly the one I meant also.

    He’s also the Boy from About a Boy, except all grown up and kind of hot (I feel so dirty).

      Wow. I wish I didn’t know that. It’s like that time my friend a picture of Daniel Radcliffe without a shirt and called me all freaked out because she was totally attracted to Harry Potter for chrissakes and that’s all kinds of wrong
