Here is what the James had to share with Esquire UK.
On being a geek at heart
I am a nerd but I don’t dive head-first into any fiefdom of nerdiness, except for maybe Star Trek.
On his new film Welcome to the Punch
Don’t get me wrong. I love British cinema, but there’s also a place for ostentatious, balls-out entertainment.
On the skill of playing audiences
Big year, really, for me, in terms of getting to play somebody that challenges the audience more than I have done in the past. As an actor, you’ve got to try and make the audience like you, even if you’re doing bad things. I quite like that dynamic.
