Tye Sheridan and Olivia Cooke get emotional talking about selfie-sticks and “contouring”

Rory Cashin

It isn’t every interview that involves quoting both Notting Hill AND Kendrick Lamar.

Tye Sheridan and Olivia Cooke are two of the best up-and-coming actors in Hollywood right now.

Individually, they’ve had some great careers so far, with Sheridan stealing the show in the likes of Mud and X-Men: Apocalypse, while Cooke had us all bawling our eyes out in Me, Earl & The Dying Girl.

Together they make for a great leading duo in Spielberg’s new mega-blockbuster, and we had the opportunity to sit down with them in the lead-up to the release of Ready Player One.

We chatted about their favourite Spielberg scene to date (which sets off the emotional alarm bells), which scene they’d love to use for auditions, and what fashion mistakes from today they reckon we’ll look back on in 20 years time with pure embarrassment.

Check out our full chats below:

Ready Player One arrives in Irish cinemas with special advance screenings from Wednesday 28 March, and goes on general release from Friday 30 March, and can we just suggest you go see it on the biggest screen you can, because the set-pieces in this movie are IMMENSE.

We also had the opportunity to sit down and chat with Simon Pegg about his part in the movie, which you can check out right here as well as the book’s author and the movie’s co-screenwriter Ernest Cline, which you can check out right here.

In case you missed it, here is the trailer for the movie:
