Bryan Singer’s fantasy-adventure film Jack the Giant Slayer is now playing in theaters. Starring Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class) as the title character, the big-budget fairy tale follows Jack the farmer as he leads an expedition into the land of the giants in order to rescue a kidnapped princess (Eleanor Tomlinson). The film also stars Ian McShane, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Eddie Marsan, Bill Nighy and Warwick Davis.
Recently, I landed an exclusive phone interview with Tucci, who plays the film’s villain. We talked about making the movie, script changes, doing press, how he got into acting, filming with 3D cameras and CGI monsters, collaborating with Singer, and more. In addition, we also talked about his work in Captain America: The First Avenger, if he’ll make an appearance in the sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, DreamWorks Animations Mr. Peabody & Sherman, Larry Gaye: Renegade Male Flight Attendant, adapting City of Women, and so much more. Hit the jump for what he had to say.
