Douglas did an interview with Men’s Journal earlier this month on his latest projects, including Jupiter Ascending and The Riot Club. It’s one of those interviews where the interviewer got all the questions right so it makes for a good read.

MENSJOURNAL.COM – It’s hard to think of British actor Douglas Booth as a newcomer, but having landed on the scene just five years ago with From Time to Time, where he cut his teeth with Timothy Spall and Downton Abbey‘s Maggie Smith, the title is still appropriate. Since then, this Brit has infiltrated the States and worked with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, like Demi Moore in LOL and as the eldest son of Russell Crowe in Darren Aronofsky’s biblical epic Noah, which has recently released on DVD. His upcoming projects are just as anticipated, including the Wachowski siblings’ sci-fi thriller Jupiter Ascending and The Riot Club which will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival with Natalie Dormer and Sam Clafin. With dashing looks and charming smile, it’s no surprise that rumors of romances with his young co-stars are a frequent. But Booth lives a relatively quiet life in London where he still resides with his two whippets, Niles and Daphne. (Yes, they are named after the characters on Frasier.) We chatted with Douglas about his leading ladies, his connection with Winston Churchill, and how he pilots a spaceship in Jupiter Ascending.

What made you want to be an actor?
I was dyslexic so I struggled to read and write when I was in school. It was really difficult so I knew I wasn’t going to be great behind a desk, I struggled with exams. Things like being a doctor weren’t in my future. I loved Louis Armstrong so I decided I wanted to become a jazz musician. I played for a while. When I turned thirteen everyone was playing guitar, joining rock bands and it didn’t appear that it was cool to play the trumpet. So I quit. I started taking up acting just because it was another option and fell in love with it.

What was your first role ever?
It was in primary school. It was the story of King Agamemnon and it was a musical.

I’m going to guess you played the lead role.
[Laughs] Yes. I played Agamemnon.

Young male actors like you seem pretty susceptible to falling into the typecasting as the handsome leading actor.
I’ve always fought that. The first lead that I ever played was a young Boy George when I was seventeen. I shaved my eyebrows off. That’s as far from leading man looks as you can get. I’ve never been scared to push myself. That’s actually when I’m most happy, when I’m doing things that are challenging me or pushing me.

The Hollywood Reporter have confirmed that Douglas, along with other British up-and-comers, Max Irons and Sam Claflin, have signed on to star in the movie adaptation of the Broadway play, “Posh”. Douglas’s role is yet undefinined.

The story is set amongst the privileged elite of Oxford University and follows two first year students determined to join the infamous Riot Club where reputations can be made or destroyed over the course of a single evening.
