We caught up with him last week to get his reaction to the nomination, as well as talking Spider-Man, his James Dean biopic and Life After Beth…
Congrats on your BAFTA nomination. How did you find out you’d been nominated?
I was… I found out on Twitter. [laughs] I woke up and it’s later in London, so things had already happened there.
Crazy that we found out before you did…
Well, it’s a crazy world! I feel like I find out things via Twitter more often than you’d think.
What else have you found out on Twitter?
Awards, y’know. I found out I got nominated for a Gotham award on Twitter. I had gotten a text message from a friend that said, Congratulations. And I didn’t know what he was talking about. I went on Gotham and it was, like, You’ve been nominated for a Gotham award! I was like, Wow, that’s what he was talking about.
