Jason Derulo Had High Hopes for Hooper's "Cats"


The Tom Hooper-directed film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's popular play Cats...well it didn't go well. Yet, many had high hopes for it, including the film's co-stars Jason Derulo when he signed up for the production.Speaking with The Telegraph, talks about his excitement when initially taking on the role:

“For the longest time, I was trying to figure out what’s the perfect first role. Cats checked all the boxes. You can’t get a more star-studded cast, you don’t get a more respected director than an Oscar winner, and Rum Tum Tugger is a legacy role, a standout character in a classic musical.”

He added that, even when the first trailer hit and was questioned for it's "nightmarish" production design, Derulo still had high hopes:

“When I saw the trailer, I thought it looked unbelievable. Like, I know some people saw it and they were terrified, but I got chills down my spine! I thought it was gonna change the world.”

Derulo claims to have no regrets and is looking forward to his next project:

“You can’t wait for the perfect moment, cause that might not be your moment. So you’ve just got to go for gold. That’s how I’ll move forward.”'s good someone got a positive experience out of that film. This journalist wishes he could say the same thing...but there has been revealed to be a "Butthole Cut" of the's very hard to.

Stay tuned!
