Taylor Kitsch is making a major leap from small-screen sports hero Tim Riggins in “Friday Night Lights,” to potential blockbuster action-movie star via three big-budget films: Disney’s sci-fi fantasy “John Carter,” “Battleship” and crime thriller “Savages.” And just before he officially catapults to superstar status, he’s answering your questions.
On Thursday, March 1, Kitsch will sit down with MTV News’ Josh Horowitz to present a clip from his upcoming action adventure during “MTV First: John Carter.” At 7:56 p.m. ET on MTV, Kitsch will introduce the clip, followed by a 30-minute interview that will continue on MTV.com, where Kitsch will answer more of your questions.
To get your question answered, all you have to do is send it via Twitter, using @MTVNews and the hashtag #MTVFirst or #AskKitsch.
“MTV First” will give you a chance to see a never-before-seen clip from “John Carter,” eight days before it hits theaters on March 9.
Set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars), “John Carter” is the story of a war-weary former military captain (Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars, where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions among the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins).
“There’s kind of that stigma with big movies that it’s just action,” Kitsch told MTV News.”But with this, it’s really just the core of this guy and his journey of reinventing himself and finding himself again.”
“John Carter” is based on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic novel “John Carter of Mars.” The film will be released on March 9 in digital 3-D and IMAX 3-D.
