Kevin Spacey and Nicholas Hoult are spotted on the set of “Rebel in the Rye” in New York City. The movie is about “the life of celebrated but reclusive author, J.D. Salinger, who gained worldwide fame with the publication of his novel, The Catcher in the Rye.” Hoult is playing Salinger and Spacey is playing Whit Burnett, Salinger’s teacher and mentor.
Boy, Nicholas Hoult sure can make any style or era of clothing look hot, can’t he?
Then again, the post-war ’40s (we’re assuming from the shots) were a pretty good time for casual menswear, if you had the build to pull off pleats and a high waist. Spacey proves that this period was not, however, one loaded with stylish options for the middle-aged male. Then again, what period is?
Also: the title of this film is a bit cringe-worthy, no?
