Exclusive: Nicholas Hoult searches for the next big thing in Kill Your Friends clip

Nichola Hoult - aka X-Men's Beast - will soon be back in cinemas, but instead of playing a blue furry superhero he'll be heading up Kill Your Friends as a buddy A&R man searching for the next big thing in music.

“The truth is signing bands is a lottery." Hoult's Stelfox tells us. "But now and then, once in a while, you do witness something new. Fresh… like fucking snow. And then you’ve got your work cut out because then the race is on.”

Watch the exclusive clip below...

How will he become the ultimate A&R guy? We're guessing it has something to do with killing everyone in his path... Co-starring Ed Skrein, James Corden, Craig Roberts and Tom Riley, Kill Your Friends opens in the UK on November 6 2015.
