US Weekly’s ‘The Host’ Collectors’ Edition will become available March 22nd (I believe this is the one we announced previously could be pre-ordered through Barnes and Noble), but they are giving us a peek at the cover of the issue, as well as a snippet of one of the interviews inside:
Is Max Irons the next Rob Pattinson? He has chiseled good looks. He’s British. And he’s starring in the upcoming sci-fi film The Host, based on the best-selling novel by beloved Twilight author Stephenie Meyer.In the much-anticipated movie, Irons plays Jared, one of the last remaining humans on Earth, who falls in love with Melanie (Saoirse Ronan), a fellow human whose body becomes the host for an alien. It’s a star-making role, and even though he’s the son of actor’s actor Jeremy Irons, the 27-year-old hunk wasn’t a shoo-in.
Hunger Games‘ Liam Hemsworth and Game of Thrones‘ Kit Harington were also up for the role. “I looked at these guys, all tanned, with perfect stubble and muscles,” he tells Us Weekly. “And I thought, What do they want with me? I’m pale and pasty.”
“You know, Taylor Lautner, with a body like that, he should be taking his shirt off,” Irons jokes. “For me, it’s not so essential.
Anyone else have this pre-ordered already, or planning to do so?
