ONTD Original: The ONTD Tag Retrospective - Nicholas Hoult

This is a series where I go through outdated or infrequently used tags and do a deep dive into the posts contained therein.

Our previous subject was Nadine Coyle!

So here we go - today's subject of our ONTD Tag Retrospective is:


Who is he?

Nicholas Hoult is a 31-year-old English actor (can you believe he's only 31?!?!?!). He is a former child actor and has been working consistently since his earliest film appearances (most notably, 2002's About A Boy). You probably know him from: Skins (UK), dating Jennifer Lawrence, witnessing him in Mad Max: Fury Road, and playing Beast in the X-Men movies!

How many posts in his tag?

At the time of submission - 182!

What was the first post?

On May 30, 2009, user quizblorg posted:
Stephen Fry Brings His "Liar" to the Big Screen

Nicholas Hoult was expected to be the lead in the adaptation of Stephen Fry's "Liar." Sir Ian McKellen was also tied to the project - but this film never got made!

It's apparently still in the works, though. Most recently it's been reported that Asa Butterfield will star in the role that was initially supposed to be Hoult's. Jeff Goldblum is also attached. Neither of these 2 men have tags on ONTD.

What is the most recent post?

On August 3, 2021, user sandstorm posted:
Nicholas Hoult Will Play unhinged Dracula stan in 'Renfield'

This post comes 4,448 days (or 12 years, 2 months, and 4 days) after the first post in Nicholas's tag!

Which post received the most comments?

X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer !
Posted on October 29, 2013 by user svetla_9101
Take a trip back in time where you can read people's first reactions to the trailer of one of the best X-Men films in the franchise!

This post garnered 569 comments!
*OP Note: I excluded Live Viewing Posts for awards shows

Which posts stand out?

A (slightly awkward) interview with Tony Stonem.
Posted on May 21, 2011 by user ilovestarburst
An awkward interview in The Guardian worthy of a frejasface Notorious Celebrity Interviews post!

Nicholas Hoult Also Drags Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston
Posted on July 17, 2016 by user frejasface
The video is still up so you can watch Nicholas Hoult mock Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift's relationship. You also get to see Kristen Stewart react to the comment (that came totally out of left-field wtf??) in awkward KStew fashion!

This post is also notable because there's news of the Kim/Kanye/Taylor feud breaking in the comments!

Any ONTD Originals?

ONTD Original: Is he cute or just tall?
A most ICONIC ONTD Original posted on June 9, 2020 by user crowdedstreets

And this is where I reveal to you, dear reader, that I LIED to you above when I told you that the X-Men:Days of Future Past trailer post had the most comments. Not so! This ONTD Original does with a whopping 708!

You'll have to go to the source for the verdict on whether Nicholas Hoult is cute or just tall - I would tell you, but we've already established that I'm an unreliable narrator so you may as well go and find out the truth for yourself!

What Were His Talked About Romances and Rumoured Romances?

Nicholas Hoult: Wimbledon with Victoria Justice!

Victoria Justice would later comment denying any romance between the two.

Posted on February 15, 2012 by user jordanabevan
Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence met on the set of X-Men: First Class in 2010 and the relationship went public in 2011 - but this is the first post about their relationship under the Nicholas Hoult tag. ONTD's reaction was, as always, mixed:

Jennifer Lawrence & Nicholas Hoult At the Met Gala 2013
Posted on May 7, 2013 by user thesugarman
This title is bait by the OP - the two arrived separately. The theme this year was Punk: Chaos to Couture. They looked nice but normal and boring - neither chose to dress to theme. Pictures are still available at source #3 in the post.

I had no idea he had a kid. He and Bryana appear to still be together, so that's something.

Most deranged post?

Such an innocuous post and yet the comments are all over the place. You'll get whiplash reading through this one. Never change, ONTD.


Which posts contain the most drama?

This is a trailer post for a film I've never even heard of which also stars Charlize Theron and Chloë Grace Moretz. The OP was right - it does look terrible!

Posted on June 4, 2019 by user just444
The Batman is due out in a few months and I had no idea Nicholas Hoult was apparently in the running to play Batman! Poor Nicky - always a groomsman, never a groom!

What else is in this tag?

Lots of casting news, X-Men and Skins stuff, photoshoots and interviews, a ton of JLaw couple posts.
