I'll cut to the chase-MTV has posted some video clips from an interview with John Carter himself talking about his work in the upcoming film and other films. In this case you can watch his discussion about the audition process and how he prepared to land the role below (thanks to the Unofficial John Carter Movie site http://www.jcofmars.com/ for the original link. UPDATE: As mentioned in the comments, the video won't play for people outside the US. Sorry about that folks. Luckily MTV has posted a breakdown of what Kitsch says right here http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1672088/john-carter-taylor-kitsch.jhtml. Hope that helps.
