We chatted to Oliver Jackson-Cohen about one of the biggest horror hits of recent years as well as the trials and tribulations of playing The Invisible Man.

Oliver Jackson-Cohen has found his career going from strength to strength lately.

Kicking off back in the day in smaller roles next to Dwayne Johnson (Faster), Chris Evans (What's Your Number?) and Drew Barrymore (Going The Distance), as well as appearing in episodes of Dracula and Mr Selfridge, it is within the last year that he has really shot into the stratosphere.

Between playing the troubled Luke Crain in Netflix's hit horror The Haunting Of Hill House, as well as the titular villain in the brand new take on The Invisible Man, it truly does look like 2020 is going to be a great year for Oliver.

JOE was lucky enough to sit down with him in the run-up to the release of his new scary movie and in between chatting about all of the jokes he must have heard when he landed the role ("Could you really SEE yourself in this role?") and discussing his favourite scary movie of all time, we also had to ask about the upcoming sequel to the Netflix series.

The Haunting Of Bly Manor is set to arrive on the streaming service later in 2020, and while he has previously mentioned that the new series will be more intense than the first, he can't go too far into details of the plot itself. However, we had to ask if there might be something in Bly Manor that would match the single-take episode set in the funeral home from the first season?

"Yes," he tells JOE bluntly. "There is. Nothing is being repeated. So nothing from Season One is being done. There is no... nothing like that is being done again.

"Mike [Flanagan, director] has taken the story of The Turning Of The Screw and done with it what he done with The Haunting Of Hill House. So he does the same. He has kind of turned it on its head.

"I so want to talk about it! And we just wrapped as well. [Two days ago], I wrapped. So I have so much that I want to talk about. The end is insane! It's insane!"

JOE also chatted to The Invisible Man's leading lady Elisabeth Moss, which you can see here, as well as the movie's writer/director Leigh Whannell, and producer Jason Blum, which you can check out here.

The Invisible Man arrives in Irish cinemas on Friday 28 February. Check out the trailer right here.
