Nicholas said the interview was “strange” and he wished he had been given “a few more minutes” to finish his story.
During the interview, the American explained that he saw the famous Pulp Fiction director on a plane in 2005, when he was a young star who had just shot the Disney movie Sky High.
So I saw Quentin and he was in the front row and I passed him. And when I sat in my seat I was like, ‘I have to do something, I have to say something to Quentin,'” he told the show’s hosts, including Sarah Harris and Hamish McDonald.
So I ripped the[film]ad out from the back of the magazine and brought it to Quentin and I was like, ‘Hey Quentin, you don’t know me but that’s me right here in this ad.'”

An angry Sarah interrupts the actor for part of the story, telling him over and over again that they are out of time. Hosts Sarah Harris and Hamish MacDonald are pictured.
“The movie is about time travel and these kids who travel through time space wearing snow suits…”
At this point, Harris interjected with a strained voice, “Look we’re…running out of time.”
“I know, we’ll wrap it up, it’s a very important story,” answered Nicholas, to which a more weary Harris said urgently: “We have to go!”
“But anyway Quentin took it and it was a great moment for us,” Nicholas finally finished.
‘Thank you so much for joining us!’ An exasperated Harris audibly finished off before throwing himself into the commercial.
He said, “This guy was yelling in my ear that there was a minute left and all that stuff, and then they asked me to do a Quentin Tarantino story. ‘I must have only 20 seconds left. I was only ready to scream at the end
Nicholas took it in his stride, telling the hosts he was looking forward to meeting them in person the next time he was in the country, before the part ended.

The 34-year-old spoke to Entertainment Tonight at the 2023 Independent Spirit Awards over the weekend about his thoughts on the series coming to a close after its upcoming fourth season.
“It was kind of a big deal,” Brown said of the ad. “We were expecting it while we were doing the show, but you don’t believe it until Jesse says it,” he said, referring to showrunner Jesse Armstrong.
He continued, “We are all very upset. I was sad as hell on my last day.
The actor plays Cousin Greg, the lovable underdog of the Roy family, on the show.
