Nicola Peltz and Gregg Sulkin Talk AFFLUENZA, Gorgeous Long Island Locales, Playing Golf Movie Magic Style, FAKING IT, TRANSFORMERS and More

     July 10, 2014


Affluenza is defined as the guilt or lack of motivation experienced by people who have made or inherited large amounts of money.  Affluenza’s Fisher (Ben Rosenfield) doesn’t suffer from it, but Nicola Peltz and Gregg Sulkin’s characters most certainly do.  Fisher’s an aspiring photographer who opts to ditch his home in Ithaca to spend the summer at his cousin Kate’s (Peltz) house in an extremely wealthy area on the North Shore of Long Island.  The plan is to get away for a bit, take some pictures and try to get himself into a good school, but Fisher winds up getting caught up in Kate’s world of big parties, fancy things and an excess of self-indulgence.

With Affluenza heading towards a July 11th theatrical and On Demand debut, we got the chance to sit down with Peltz and Sulkin to discuss their very entitled characters, faking some golf skills and what they’re really drinking and smoking on set.  Hit the jump to catch all of that as well as Sulkin’s hopes for the second season of MTV’s Faking It and how Peltz feels about the divide between the enormous box office and rock bottom critical reception for Transformers: Age of Extinction.
