Preview: Interview with actor Brandon Soo Hoo (Ender’s Game)

Posted on February 26, 2013 at 1:23 am by JESSIE

Ender’s Game, written by American writer Orson Scott Card, has been and probably will continue to be my favorite science fiction novel of all time. In anticipation of the Ender’s Game movie, which is set to be released in November of this year according to IMDB, I have been able to successfully set up an interview with actor Brandon Soo Hoo, who will be playing Fly Molo, Ender’s left hand man.

Mr. Card you genius, you.

Brandon has had quite a successful acting career, acting alongside big Hollywood names such as Jack Black, Ben Stiller, and Robert Downey Jr. in the hilarious, but slightly-controversial Oscar-nominated movie Tropic Thunder. On the set of Ender’s Game, Brandon had the opportunity to work alongside legendary actors Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley.

The objective of this post is to open the floor to any readers out there that would like me to ask Brandon any specific questions come interview time. For those of you who have any ideas, please submit them in the comments section! All questions will be taken into consideration (and most likely will all be asked). There are no limits, so get creative ya’ll and let’s come up with some interesting inquiries!
