Nick Robinson

  1. Ansel Elgort, The Fault in Our Stars, 2013.   For author John Green’s moving  love  story of two victims in a cancer support group, Robinson, Noah Silver, Brenton Thwaites and Nat Wolff were examined for Gus – who became a superb Elgort opposite his (idem) Divergent sister, Shailene Woodley. Wolff became Isaac – with the aid of blinding contacts to blur his vision 
  2. Tye Sheridan, Ready Player One, 2016.  Robinson, Dalton Vaughn and Nat Wolff were also up for Wade Watts/Parzival in Steven Spielberg’s “third most diffilcult film” (after Jaws and Saving Private Ryan), a razzle-dazzle  take on Ernest Cline’s nove. Including a blink-and-you-miss-’em array of such classic movie  nods as  Akira’s motor-bike, an Alien loader, Back to the Future’s De Lorean, the 1966 Batmobile, Boba Fett, Chucky, Dr Who’s TARDIS, Firefly’s Serenity, Iron Giant, Ray Harryhausen’s cyclops, King Kong, RoboCop’s ED-209 robot,  Jurassic Park’s  T Rex, real footage from The Shining and much, much more.
