“Extra’s” Renee Bargh sat down with actor Nicholas Hoult at Universal Studios Hollywood, where he promoted his new film “Rebel in the Rye.”

In the movie, Hoult plays the notoriously reclusive “Catcher in the Rye” author J.D. Salinger, which he said was quite the challenge! He revealed, “There’s a lot of pressure, and not just like a real person in the sense you’re doing an imitation, 'cause there's not really any video or recordings of him.”

Hoult was joined by director Danny Strong, who raved about his audition. Watch!

"Rebel in the Rye" hits theaters September 8.
