Do actors research their own roles?
—Janice L., Summerlin, Nev. A: Most actors do much of the digging themselves. For his portrayal of J.D. Salinger in the movie Rebel in the Rye, opening Sept. 15, Nicholas Hoult, 27, discovered the famously reclusive author was a really good dancer. So the Mad Max: Fury Road star and co-star Zoey Deutch, 22, took dance classes for the biopic of the legendary author, which follows Salinger’s experiences in World War II and his writing process for The Catcher in the Rye.
