Nick Frost is huge James Franco fan

Nick Frost is a big fan of James Franco, and isn't shy when it comes to praising his own work.

The British funnyman is busy filming Unfinished Business, which stars James Marsden, Sienna Miller and James' younger brother Dave.

When Empire magazine asked Nick to recount the last movie that surprised him, he picked one of James' recent flicks, on the recommendation of Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright.

"I absolutely LOVED Spring Breakers. I knew that Edgar liked it a lot and knew almost nothing about it going in and I thought it was amazing. I heart James Franco and thought he was dangerously charismatic as the grill-wearing Alien. I think by the end of it I wished he'd seduce me into his murderous band," he confessed to the publication.

Nick went on to name Ben Wheatley's A Field in England as the last movie he couldn't get out of his head and the Exorcist as the last film that scared him.

John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John's turn as high-school sweethearts in Grease was the first film he ever remembers seeing.

"I was about six and my parents took me. I fell asleep. It was the first and last time I remember going to the cinema with my parents. I think I made a bad impression," he laughed.

Since starting out as a TV star, Nick is now a regular on the big screen. Many of his films have been smash hits, and the star isn't modest when it comes to what he thinks of his own work.

"I know it sounds a bit arrogant listing one of own films but there's a scene in Cuban Fury where Bruce bowls into the club at the end to dance. After doing a very extensive US press tour, we always made sure we came back to the screenings for that part. It really makes me happy," he said of the last movie that made him smile.

He picked The World's End, which he also stars in, as the most recent film that made him want to download the soundtrack.

Horoscopes

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
