Nick Frost full name Nicholas John 'Nick' Frost (born 28.4.1972) Nick Frost is an English actor, screenwriter and comedian most notable for his highly acclaimed work with Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg on the television series Spaced, and the 'Cornetto trilogy', consisting of multi-award winning Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and the World's End.
Childhood: Frost was born in Dagenham, East London to office furniture designers where he attended Beal High School. Frost became a waiter, whilst occasionally doing small time acting positions in corporate training videos such as 'Chris Carter and the Coverplan Challenge' and a Dixon's group sales video, in order to fulfil his acting ambitions. Nick Frost: Acting Career Despite only doing occasional acting positions and working as an extra on the television series Big Train, Nick Frost was cast on Simon Pegg's and Edgar Wrights highly acclaimed and notable television series, Spaced.
The series followed two friends Tim (played by Simon Pegg) and Daisy (played by Jessica Hynes) as they pretend to be married in order to stay in the only apartment they can afford. Despite the show finishing after 2 series (even though a third series was reportedly considered) the cast and crew remained in contact and developed a professional working relationship. Frost later worked alongside Dylan Moran, Tamsin Greig and Bill Bailey to appear in two episodes of Black Books, a comedy focusing on a book shop owner who hates his customers. Frost and Pegg collaborated again in 2004 to write and star in Danger! 50,000 Zombies a short spoof film based on Nick Frosts TV Series Danger! 50000 Volts. The short film focused purely on the subject of the living dead which inspired the release and writing of Shaun of the Dead.
Shaun of the Dead reunited Edgar Wright with the Frost/Pegg duo and received positive critical response. The film was described as a 'romantic zombie comedy' shortened to 'rom-zom-com' and made reference to and added humour to previous Zombie films such as Dawn of the Dead. The film also reunited Tamsin Greig and Dylan Moran whom Frost had previously worked with on Black Books. Shaun of the Dead was the beginning of what would later be referred to as the 'Three flavours Cornetto trilogy'.
A trio of comedies connected via the flavour of Cornetto ice-cream. It is a reference to Krzysztof Kieslowski's Three Colours film trilogy. Nick Frost continued to act in television films and short videos made with Pegg and Wright, often including co-stars from Shaun of the Dead. These videos were short comedies including: Funky Pete and Who would be Sean. In 2005 Nick Frost was cast in Kinky Boots, a new project unrelated to his previous work. The film was displayed on the opening night of Sundance Film Festival and followed a drag queen that made an attempt to save a man from losing his shoe shop.
Frost continued to play small television series roles such as: Look around You, Dirty Tricks and Green Wing, before being cast alongside Simon Pegg in Hot Fuzz, A comedy about the Police/Fuzz written by previous friend and colleague Edgar Wright. The film was a commercial and critical success receiving $80,573,774 at the world wide box office. Between 2005 and 2007, Frost starred on the 12 episode series Man Stroke Woman, a series of sketches in which the cast played multiple roles. The show finished after 2 series and Frost was cast alongside previous co-star Bill Nigh (Hot Fuzz) on the Boat That Rocked. The film won Best Picture at the Golden Capital Awards as well as receiving four other nominations.
In 2011 Frost starred and wrote his debut feature film alongside previous friend and co-star Simon Pegg. 'Paul' followed the journey of two nerds (Pegg and Frost) who encounter an Alien (voiced by comedian and actor Seth Rogen) as they made an attempt to get the alien back home. The film also starred Jason Bateman and Sigourney Weaver. Frost continued to have supporting roles in Attack the Block and Snow White and the Huntsman before teaming up with an all star cast (including Pegg and Wright) in The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. The film was directed by world famous and critically acclaimed director Steven Spielberg and Produced by Peter Jackson who had a cameo appearance in Hot Fuzz. The film was nominated for one Academy Award and received another 33 nominations in different festivals and award ceremonies.
The final instalment of the Cornetto trilogy is due for release 19th July and will feature Frost, Pegg, Wright and previous stars from Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead.
Personal Life: Frost currently resides with his half-Swedish wife, executive Producer Christina in London who gave birth to a boy on 22nd June 2011. Frost is also a well known supporter of West Ham United.

Mirror Mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?' is a line from a fairy-tale echoed down the ages but not many know the story behind the famous fairy-tale and how one mothers love for her child unleashed a wrath which drastically changed the land.
Freya, the Ice Queen flees her homeland and takes to a cold winter land where she raises a group of hardened soldiers, the huntsmen remain by her side for many years and they are her protectors; the only command issued to the fighters is that they must not love.
As Freya learns of her demise, she decides that she will resurrect her sister with the help of the magic mirror, usually found at the side of her sister, evil Queen Ravenna. As Freya dispatches her army to capture the mirror two of her former huntsman decide that they must destroy the mirror as its power is too great for any person to harness. The fate of the Kingdom relies on the true huntsman.

But Freya soon discovered that he two most prized fighters had defied her by breaking her most important rule of all: Forever harden your hearts to love.
After learning of her sister's demise, Freya then summons her remaining soldiers to bring the Magic Mirror home to the only sorceress left who can harness its power. But when she discovers Ravenna can be resurrected from its golden depths, the two sisters threaten their enchanted land with twice the darkest force it's ever seen.

More than just a misfire, this attempt at a rude comedy goes so spectacularly wrong that it actually contradicts its own jokes even as it's telling them. But then it undermines everything as it goes along, for example indulging rampantly in comical cruelty before trying to say something meaningful about the dangers of bullying. The real question is how the cast members could have agreed to make a movie in which they all come across as incoherent idiots.
The story opens as Dan (Vince Vaughn) clashes with his boss Chuck (Sienna Miller) then quits dramatically, taking newly retired Tim (Tom Wilkinson) and airhead newbie Mike (Dave Franco) with him to start a new sales company. But after a year, business isn't good, and the future hinges on making a massive deal with Bill and Jim (Nick Frost and James Marsden). The problem is that Chuck is also bidding for the business, so Dan, Tim and Mike fly off to Maine and then Berlin to seal the deal with a handshake. Impossibly they arrive in Berlin at the same time as Oktoberfest, the marathon, a gay S&M festival and the G8 Summit, with its accompanying anarchist protest. Meanwhile back home, Dan's wife (June Diane Raphael) is having problems with the kids.
Frankly, there is so much going on in this film that it's exhausting. It's as if screenwriter Conrad just threw everything he could think of onto the page and didn't worry if it made even a lick of sense. Every scene feels interrupted by a bit of random chaos that isn't remotely amusing. And despite making a movie that's obsessed with sex, the filmmakers are unable to decide whether they want to make fun of it or are terrified of it (so they end up being both at the same time). Each time something interesting or funny threatens to happen, it's sideswiped by something so breathtakingly bungled that we don't know where to look.

A triumph on a variety of levels, this staggeringly detailed stop-motion animation has a wonderfully deranged story packed with spirited characters. It also takes on some seriously important issues without ever getting heavy-handed about it. So while we're laughing at the astounding visual mayhem, there's plenty of depth to keep our brains spinning. And what the film has to say about communal paranoia is vitally important in today's world.
The story takes place a decade after a baby was kidnapped by the Boxtrolls, nighttime scavengers who prowl by night. Over the last 10 years, their legend has grown, and the people are now terrified of being eaten. So the red-hatted Snatcher (voiced by Ben Kingsley) and his sidekicks (Richard Ayoade, Nick Frost and Tracy Morgan) set a goal to exterminate the trolls in exchange for prestigious white hats, which will let them join Lord Portley-Rind (Jared Harris) for his evening cheese-tasting events. Then Portley-Rind's daughter Winnie (Elle Fanning) spots a boy among the Boxtrolls, learning that Eggs (Isaac Hempstead Wright) is actually the kidnapped baby. And that Boxtrolls aren't actually villains at all. But can she get her father to pay attention to her for even a moment, so he can understand that Snatcher is the real bad guy?
Everything on-screen is in constant motion, with cluttered scenes that are a feast for the eyes. Action sequences are complicated and layered, drawing the eye all over the screen as the stakes grow higher with each scene. The mechanical climax feels like one step too far, but the filmmakers keep the focus tightly on the characters, each of whom has a bundle of quirks and obsessions that make them flawed and likeable. Even the nefarious Snatcher has a soft side, and Kingsley has a great time bringing out each aspect of the hilariously vile character, including his scene-stealing alter ego, the fabulous drag queen Madame Frou Frou.
Continue reading: The Boxtrolls Review
The Boxtrolls are odd underground creatures that wear cardboard boxes as if they were shells. Shy and wary of the unforgiving world around them, they take to the streets at night to recycle rubbish from dustbins and store it in their homes below the streets of Cheesebridge; a town fixated with money and smelly cheese and who are less than welcoming to their sewer dwelling neighbours, who they believe to be enormous insidious menaces. That couldn't be further than the truth when it comes to the Boxtrolls; there is simply nothing menacing about them, so when they find themselves being pursued by a ruthless exterminator by the name of Archibald Snatcher, all they want to do is make sure they are well hidden. They have a protector, however, named Eggs - a young boy who the Boxtrolls adopted as a baby - and he's about to show them just how brave they can be in the face of danger.

This is the kind of British rom-com that sneaks up on you when you least expect it and leaves you with a huge smile on your face at the end. It's not particularly clever or sharp, but it's packed with terrific moments that grow on us. And the characters are particularly engaging, making far more of the film than its one-joke gimmick: fat man dances salsa.
Nick Frost plays Bruce, a chubby office worker who was a salsa champion as a child but turned his back on dance after some nasty bullying. Now he learns that his sexy new American boss Julia (Jones) is studying salsa herself, and her flirty manner suggests she might be interested, against the odds. Especially since swaggering office rival Drew (O'Dowd) is after her. So with the encouragement of his sister Sam (Colman), Bruce looks up his old mentor (McShane) and gets to work. His fellow lonely-hearts pals (Kinnear and Plester) think he's nuts, but encourage him. And he finds an unlikely ally in over-eager fellow dance student Bejan (Novak).
Both predictable and rather implausible, the plot certainly isn't what holds our attention here. It's the colourful people on-screen, each played to perfection by a gifted cast. Frost holds the film together with a lively performance that's surprisingly never played as a comedy of embarrassment (he can actually dance). Jones is clearly having a ball, even if generating any real chemistry with Frost eludes her, while Colman lights up the screen in a small role. And the shameless scene-stealers are O'Dowd, as a sleazy low-life straight from The Office, and especially Novak in one of those side-roles that becomes a comedy icon. We want to see a spin-off about him.
Continue reading: Cuban Fury Review
Bruce Garrett is a self-doubting, overweight office worker who has very little luck with women - as his co-worker never fails to remind him. When his new boss shows up and he finds that she is a beautiful woman named Julia, he desperately wants to impress her but can't see himself having any assets that she could want in a man - that is until he sees her displaying her moves at a salsa dancing event. It sparks an old passion within Bruce, who used to be a budding dancer aiming for the UK Junior Salsa Championships when he was 13-years-old before some severe bullying ruined his performance confidence forever. He decides to take up the sport again by attending salsa dancing lessons ahead of an upcoming show, however his co-worker also has his heart set on Julia and his moves could seriously threaten Bruce's wooing plans.
This charming British comedy is about love, passion and following your dreams and has been produced by the producers of Hot Fuzz' and 'Shaun Of The Dead'. 'Cuban Fury' has been directed by James Griffiths ('Free Agents', 'Episodes') and written by Jon Brown ('Mongrels', 'After You've Gone'), and is set for release this Valentine's Day, February 14th 2014.
Eggs is a young orphaned boy who had possibly the most unusual upbringing one could ever think of; he was raised by a group of inhuman trash collectors called the Boxtrolls who live in a dingy by cosy underground cave. However, The Boxtrolls, named so because of the large cardboard boxes they wear on their torsos, find their rubbish filled paradise under huge threat when a ruthless exterminator by the name of Archibald Snatcher decides to wipe out these unusual creatures for good. Eggs must do everything within his power to stop him and save his friends (and family) from certain death.
