“The script came in a week ago; I haven’t read it yet. They haven’t given it to me. I know (film producer) Amy Pascal has the script. She Facetimed me earlier when I was in the bath and we had a lovely Facetime. But I will be playing Fred Astaire.”
Holland is no stranger to fancy footwork. The 25-year-old starred in Billy Elliot in London’s West End from 2008 to 2010.
