Zachary Quinto, Rupert Friend, And Hannah Ware Play "Never Have I Ever"

The Hitman: Agent 47 cast get real about everything from celeb doppelgängers to secret tattoos.

Posted on

Rupert Friend stars as the elite assassin Agent 47 alongside Zachary Quinto and Hannah Ware in the new video game–based film Hitman: Agent 47. The three stars stopped by BuzzFeed NY to play a round of “Never Have I Ever,” in which we found out about Zachary Quinto's semi-regrettable tattoo and Rupert Friend's woes about being mistaken for Orlando Bloom. Here's what happened.

Rupert Friend: I want to!


Zachary Quinto: Sort of, but not really. Hannah still dreams of it.

Hannah Ware: Still hoping. I wanted to be one of those translators for politicians but then I’m secretly a spy! I had this whole thing.

RF: What language?

HW: All sorts of languages.


RF: [Guilty]

ZQ: Nooo. You have, [Rupert]?!

RF: Yeah!

HW: You’re so the type of person who would’ve.

ZQ: I would, but I just haven’t.

RF: Let’s do it together!

ZQ: I would do it! We should’ve done that tonight. We should’ve parachuted onto the red carpet.

RF: That would’ve been great.

There’s still time.

ZQ: Yeah, we can organize that right quick.


HW: I’ve been doing other things, but not playing video games.

ZQ: Yeah, all the time.

RF: Yeah, if you’re Zach Quinto you have to.

ZQ: Yeah.

RF: My code name is Zach Quinto. It doesn’t work if we’re all staying in the same hotel.

HW: I love your code name [Zach]. I won’t tell anyone. It will be very secret agent of me.


RF: I had someone chase me through Bangkok airport insisting that I was Orlando Bloom.

ZQ: Ohh, wow. That’s really funny.

RF: When I said that I wasn’t, they were like, "We knowww! We know."

ZQ: That’s really funny.

RF: And they were like, You have to sign this thing. And I was like, OK, fine, and I just did it.

ZQ: I’ve had people have full-on conversations about having met me, and like dinner, and talking all about this stuff and my work in Inglourious Basterds, because they fully thought that I was Eli Roth.

HW: Oh my god.

RF: No way!

ZQ: Yeah. Eli and I get that a lot, I know Eli. We commiserate over our mistaken identities.


ZQ: Artificial intelligence?

HW: No, I’m frightened.

ZQ: That’s not good. That’s not gonna end well for the human civilization.


RF: Ohh, that’s an interesting question.

ZQ: Suuure.

HW: Yeah.

HW: Oooh.

ZQ: You have?!

HW: I might’ve.

ZQ: You’ve had a drink thrown in your face?! What kind of rambunctious brawling gal are you?!

HW: From a boyfriend.

ZQ: But for a guy to throw a drink in your face? I can see you doing that to a guy, but for a guy to throw it in your face…

HW: I don’t think so, but some things are blurry… I mean, no physical abuse!


ZQ: It wasn’t Netflix, but, I did Transparent in one go. I LOVED it. Jeffrey Tambor is like, next level.

RF: I nearly did Bloodline. A few sections.

ZQ: I did Bloodline also!

HW: I’m gonna bring it down a level: The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

ZQ: Yeah, that was also really good. Good show.

HW: It’s really good. Really good.

HW: No, I’m too worried that they’ll see the boxes.

RF: I’m too proud of my cooking.

ZQ: Yeah, Rupert’s a foodie.

Everyone: Yeah!

HW: Top it off!

RF: That’s the only way to go.

ZQ: I have just a… I have a thing.

RF: What is it?

HW: I think it’s cool!

ZQ: It’s like a Celtic symbol, I got it done in gray ink when I was 21 — a long time ago.

RF: What’s it mean?

ZQ: It means the flowing continuity of life.

RF: Are you glad about it now?

ZQ: I’m sort of like neither here nor there. I could have it removed in like 10 minutes. It’s not like a big, elaborate thing. Would I do it again? Who knows...

ZQ: Like, seriously talked about ourselves in the third person?


: I’ve done it as a joke. But like straight up? No.

ZQ: I’ve driven cross-country five times.

RF: Like, in a row, you just went back and forth.

ZQ: Just back and forth, it took me three months. No, different times.

RF: Again, Miss Ware. Absolutely, first and foremost.
