Five Favourite Films with Nick Frost
Right now, you might say that Nick Frost and Simon Pegg are living every sci-fi movie fan's dream. The irrepressible British comedy duo, who came to attention via cult TV series Spaced and scored big-screen hits with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, are currently enjoying the success of their third movie collaboration, Paul, which finds them as road-tripping nerds inadvertently harbouring an intergalactic fugitive with an attitude (Paul, voiced by Seth Rogen). With Paul landing in Australian cinemas this week, we got a chance to talk with Nick Frost about the film, what it's been like working with Spielberg, and what to expect from Attack the Block. Read on for the full interview, but first, as always, we asked him his Five Favourite Films.
