What’s your prediction for the Best Actor category at the Oscars this year?
@Sandra Salas that would be cool
Austin should win ❤
Hope he ties with Brandon.
Interesting how much he identifies with, and how much empathy he has for Elvis. Really inhabited that role. Superior interview from Sean as usual
@LUCCI Ok boomer you realize people have opinions yet or are u that slow
@ya ya well you can still be wrong and I’m still 20. You’re probably older than me and still a low intellect
@LUCCI Hey guess what my opinion is he’s overrated and you will never change that LOL keep crying boomer
@ya ya that’s not what I said now was it. If people didn’t like him they wouldn’t watch. A dude can’t be overrated when he wasn’t even from this time. One day you will grow up and learn more words
@LUCCI Lol “4billion people watched him that means everyone should like him!!” One day you’ll grow up and realize not everyone in the world will agree with you 💀
“That was so thoughtful.” “I feel safe with you.” We love a man that’s not afraid to share his feelings 😂❤ he seems so kind, wonderful interview
@Tnc874 good thing he doesn’t want u
A good heart guy that is.
don’t know who he is but that bit at the end was nice. He really opened up to Sean with that hug……. don’t know if this is the first time he has met Sean but that’ was totally unexpected. i guess in the industry he is in he must feel like he lacks the company of real people….nice guy
@crazy4corbinbleux As a Moonwalker, shut up bot !
@Tnc874 I think you need therapy
Austin is just such a breath of fresh air. He’s such a calm, thoughtful person. I’ve loved him since ‘The Shannara Chronicles’. So happy to see that his career has taken off.
Did you just googled one of his earlier movie career to get attention? Genuinely asking.
The Shannara Chronicles was the first thing I recall seeing him in too. Not surprising that he’s turned into a such a great and successful actor. It was evident that he had “it.” Nothing to do with his looks (although I’m sure that doesn’t hurt) either, he just had real presence on screen.
@crazy4corbinbleux please take a break it is not a competition enjoy your movie when it’s released
I’m really happy for you- ima let you finish but– THE ELVIS FILM WILL NEVER COMPARE TO THE MICHAEL BIOPIC SET TO RELEASE IN 2025! Nice try Austin but you can’t even come close! You’re not even related to Elvis. Michael is going to have his blood line NEPHEW play him in his biopic. It doesn’t get any more royalty than that. How does it feel? And don’t think for a second we forgot the executives of ‘Elvis’ thought it was fitting to release the film the day before Michael’s death anniversary on June 25th. You are NOT forgiven for that one. Michael >> Elvis. Long live the King!!
No he’s not. Gross
Growing up seeing Austin on shows like Zoey 101 and iCarly, it’s legit crazy seeing him on the world stage like this. Getting the opportunity to finally get your shot and show the world why you care about what you do has to be one of the most fulfilling and validating feelings in life. Hope he has a long career ahead of him, he clearly cares about his craft and has a lot of love for what actors do.
he also had a brief cameo in Hannah Montana, also was really good in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
I was waiting for someone to mention that. He was someone girls were gushing over. Now he’s cool 😎
I just love how ”regular” Austin is, he is so humble and respects everyone who is around him. That’s what you call a real man. ❤
Austin is just so humble and always connects his present back to his past and to his mom. i love that he keeps himself so in the moment with everything. i really hope he wins that oscar, he deserves it
@Emily ciampi I thought I did a great job spelling it out, WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO TRY AGAIN? 😈
@crazy4corbinbleux what ever in the world are you on about?
*We interrupt Londy to announce* THE ELVIS FILM WILL NEVER COMPARE TO THE MICHAEL BIOPIC SET TO RELEASE IN 2025! Nice try Austin but you can’t even come close! You’re not even related to Elvis. Michael is going to have his blood line NEPHEW play him in his biopic. It doesn’t get any more royalty than that. How does it feel? And don’t think for a second we forgot the executives of ‘Elvis’ thought it was fitting to release the film the day before Michael’s death anniversary on June 25th. You are NOT forgiven for that one. Michael >> Elvis. Long live the King!!
@Swann umm yes very humble. He’s only really done 2 movies and he knows how lucky he is
Hahahaha humble? 😂
I heard someone say Austin calms down and slows down everything around him and that’s just so true. It’s not just his voice, which is soothing, but it’s the way he tackles every question. No matter how fast or rushed the interviewer is (not talking about Sean), Austin moves smoothly in his own pace. Like he said about holding the pause, he’s not afraid for taking a second, really thinking and giving a thoughtful response. Its also the confidence, he may be shy but he’s very sure of what he’s saying because he has already put in the work, he knows his not just talking out of his a**. Lots to learn and apply in our own life from him. Also, he really didn’t struggle that much with the spice!
Funny how they liked the pb and j after the wings because everyone tells me I’m gross for eating pb and js with hot cheetos on the side. I feel the sweet and salty pair well with that hot cheeto kick! 🤤
Seriously. This was the most chill Hot Ones interview
100% this. i could not have said it better. his awareness, thoughtfulness, and sense of calm are truly something to be admired and aspired to
what a heartwarming and wholesome interview. I love when the guest vibes with Sean, and I think Austin is being 100% authentic when he says he hopes he and Sean can be friends and keep in contact.
when did he say that?
Both Sean and Austin seem to be genuine kind and thoughtful humans. I hope they become friends!
The stories about his pb&j with his mother hit hard. He seems like such a down-to-earth, wonderful person.
