  1. Arabrabbra says:

    I am now in love with Jack. Great interview. He admitted himself he was a little sleepy but you can tell how intelligent and articulate he is. Cant wait to see more of him!!

  2. Narrator says:

    Great shout on getting Jack O’Connell, been a fan of his since This is England, it’s great that he’s getting the well deserved exposure.

  3. Chris owen says:

    His accent is unbearable

  4. Chris says:

    I believe Chris, I see the baby every day.

  5. Mmaves says:

    I didn’t know that “fortnight” was still a word that was actually used.   On that note, I vow to work this gem into at least one conversation a day in 2015!

  6. English Dave says:

    I don’t know if Starred Up and ’71 got much exposure in the US but I urge you guys to seek them out if you can.

    “Bio-products.” – Jack O’Connell 2014

  8. Adam says:

    This actually makes me want to see Unbroken now.  This felt real as sh*t as most of the podcasts do and i love that, so much better then the same stupid questions in the media.  I’m glad he isn’t like me or else he’d be to lazy to be in anything.  I love sitting in bed/on couch all day watching TV and Movies.  Actually just watched one of Jack’s movies yesterday.

  9. Paul says:

    I think I’m a fan of his now.  He was very honest, and it was nice to get to hear a different angle on “stardom”!

  10. Nikki says:

    chris, come on, I *still* have cds all over my car!! I also remember making mix tapes for my best friend in middle school :p
    Jack seems a bit dry/guarded, not sure if it’s just him being english or if he’s still uncomfortable with media attention with this highly publicized role in Unbroken. But a nice guy nonetheless!I also feel guilty when I have an ‘inactive day’
