He also revealed what song he's singing on an upcoming Carpool Karaoke with Richard Madden.

Taron Egerton truly is one of the most exciting younger talents in Hollywood right now.

From playing the reluctant hero in the Kingsman movies, to being a loveable fool in Eddie The Eagle, to blowing us all away with his amazing singing voice in Sing, he truly is one to watch.

So it should be no surprise that Elton John himself singled out Egerton to play him in the new biopic of his life, Rocketman.

We're not overstating this when we say that Egerton absolutely deserves all of the awards attention when it comes to Oscar and Golden Globe season, as he is phenomenally good in the role.

When JOE sat down with him to discuss his role in the movie, we chatted about everything from his karaoke choice (and the song he has picked for his upcoming Carpool Karaoke with Richard Madden), to his opinions on the strong reaction to the LGBTQ content in the movie, to another major rock star he could potentially play next.

Oh, and yes, feeling sexy in his hot pants.

We were also lucky enough to chat to Bryce Dallas Howard, who plays Elton's mum in the new biopic (you can watch that interview here), as well as the movie's director Dexter Fletcher (interview here).

Meanwhile, Rocketman is in Irish cinemas right now, and you can check out the trailer below:
