Australia ~ Cosmo's quick interview with Alex O'Loughlin

The movie August Rush was recently released in Australia. Cosmo did a fun, brief interview with Alex O'Loughlin to tie into the film opening. A peek at a romantic date with Alex. The final question they ask him is something I know many of you have been asking too *grin*

Cosmopolitan Celeb Insider
Don't Miss August Rush

We felt the fuzzies with this sweet-as story about a music miracle child, Evan Taylor (Freddie Highmore), who uses his talents to track down his parents who abandoned him when he was born. It's been a while since we got a 'magic-does-exist' fix, and we promise this fairytale-ish flick won't disappoint.

Keep your eyes peeled for Keri Russell and Jonathan Rhys Meyers (the parents), as well as Aussie actor Alex O'Loughlin (pictured with Meyers above). Hint: he's the spunky Sydney boy who's shacked up with Holly Valance in LA, and recently starred as a detective-slash-vampire in Channel Nine's Moonlight). We roped him in for a quick chat:

Cosmo : How's the Aussie-in-LA thing working out for you?

Alex O'Loughlin : I lived on a couch for a year and effed my back, but things are going okay now.

Cosmo : Were you bummed to miss out on the James Bond/Casino Royale role to Daniel Craig?

Alex O'Loughlin : I didn't think I'd get it, but being Jimmy Bond for a day was awesome! I had a tuxedo cut and was flown to London to shoot three audition scenes. One was a seductive scene with a topless Bond girl, and in another one I had to "assassinate" a guy!

Cosmo : You play an Irish muso in August Rush. Can we expect a duet with Holly [Valance] to hit the charts anytime soon?

Alex O'Loughlin : (Groans) I know you didn't just ask me that.

Cosmo : We did.

Alex O'Loughlin : Holly's fantastic, but no, not going to happen.

Cosmo : So spill: what's the most romantic thing you've done for a chick?

Alex O'Loughlin : I'm going to sound like a knob aren't I?

Cosmo : Quite possibly.

Alex O'Loughlin : OK ... I took her to a national park, built a campfire, and told her she would have to sleep in a single swag with me for the night!

Cosmo : That's original!

Alex O'Loughlin : I think I'm a fun boyfriend. I love living life and doing spontaneous things.

Cosmo : Aww. Can we keep you?
