Nat Wolff on how 'Paper Towns' is sort of like 'The Godfather'

The first time Nat Wolff heard about John Green’s Paper Towns, he was on the set of another John Green adaptation, The Fault In Our Stars. It was then that producer Wyck Godfrey suggested that Wolff give Paper Towns a read. As Wolff puts it, Godfrey didn’t quite wink at him, but “there was something behind” the suggestion. So Wolff quickly read the book, loved it, and four months later, picked up his phone just in time to be offered the lead role of Quentin “Q” Jacobsen in a Paper Towns film adaptation. According to Wolff, he said yes before they could even finish making the offer.

“It’s just such a soulful character and a funny book. I’m excited,” Wolff says. And yet what might be most exciting is the fact that screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber knew about Wolff before they started writing the script, which allowed them, for the first time in their careers, to write for a specific actor. “First of all, that is like the most exciting compliment I’ve ever gotten because those guys are such good writers. The fact that I’m the first actor that they’re writing for is really just unbelievable,” Wolff says. READ FULL STORY

Paul Rudd and Tina Fey supply most of the romantic-comedy in Admission, director Paul Weitz’s new movie about a by-the-book Princeton University admissions officer (Fey) who is thrown for a loop when a charming old classmate (Rudd) suggests one of his most talented college-bound students just might be the child she put up for adoption years ago. But younger audiences who grew up watching The Naked Brothers Band will be delighted to recognize that Rudd’s academic prodigy, Jeremiah, is none other than a taller, less shaggy Nat Wolff, the older sibling from Nickelodeon’s hit musical-comedy TV series that ran from 2007 to 2009. Now 18 — and bound for college himself — Wolff is jumping back into movies in a big way. Admission is just one of five films he’ll star in this year, highlighted by upcoming roles opposite Selena Gomez, Lily Collins, James Franco, and Girls‘ Zosia Mamet.

What about the Naked Brothers, you ask? Nat and Alex, now 15, are still making music together (though they are no longer Naked and just go by Nat & Alex Wolff). “Since December, I’ve just been playing shows with Alex,” says the native New Yorker. “We’re a duo, and we’re working on the next record. It’s difficult to balance [music and movies], but we’re always writing songs.”
