You may remember Nicholas Hoult starring alongside Hugh Grant in the hugely popular ‘About A Boy’. Nicholas played Marcus Brewer an odd 12-year-old boy with problems at school. Gradually, Will (Hugh) and Marcus become friends, and as Will teaches Marcus how to be a cool kid, Marcus helps Will to finally grow up.

Cute right? And if you where one of the people that was around in 2006 when the UK urban box office smash hit movie Kidulthood which is in our Top 10 Urban Films of all time in the UK arrived in cinema’s then you may remember that Nicholas Hoult starred as Blake alongside Noel Clarke, Adam Deacon, Aml Ameen and Jaime Winston.
