Tom Holland chats his failed audition for Star Wars and favorite on-set souvenir during Hot Ones

Spider-Man star Tom Holland triumphantly took on the ‘wings of death’ during the 16th season finale of First We Feast talk show Hot Ones, which dropped on Thursday.

However, the 25-year-old Englishman felt sick and uttered the F-word six times during the 27-minute interview, which taped on November 12 – the same day the Minnesota Timberwolves beat the LA Lakers.

‘I’m supposed to be going to a Lakers game tonight,’ Tom groaned before heading to Staples Center.  

Not bad! Spider-Man star Tom Holland triumphantly took on the ‘wings of death’ during the 16th season finale of First We Feast talk show Hot Ones, which dropped on Thursday

‘I’m going to have to go and s*** after every quarter.’

Once Holland devoured a chicken wing doused in Da Bomb Beyond Insanity sauce, he called it ‘the worst thing I’ve ever put in my mouth.’

‘Wow, I feel so sick. I’m fantastic, man, I’m having the time of my life,’ the former child star said sarcastically.

‘I feel like I just got, like, Botox but had no anesthesia or something. Not that I’ve ever had Botox and know what it feels like. That’s when the whole world is like, “He’s had Botox!”‘

Tom regaled the audience with stories like his failed audition for the role of reformed First Order stormtrooper Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens back in 2013.

‘I just remember thinking, “There’s no way this [casting director is] going to read the robot’s lines opposite me” – just because that would be ridiculous,’ Holland recalled.

‘And I don’t remember what my line was, but it was [something like], “Let’s get back to the falcon!” and this lady, bless her, would sit there with full commitment and was like, “Be-boop-be-boop.”‘

The Cherry actor ‘could not stop laughing’ and admitted: ‘I don’t think that’s the reason why I didn’t get the role, I think John Boyega was just better for the role than me.’

Host Sean Evans asked Tom what his ‘holy grail’ favorite souvenir was from any set and he revealed it was actually something Robert Downey Jr. gave to his 17-year-old brother Paddy last year.

‘Paddy comes running into the room, and he’s holding the original Iron Man helmet,’ Holland said.

‘That’s a really special one for me, because I was lucky enough to join the MCU, but I joined it very late. And that souvenir, you know, that’s from the original film.

‘That’s the birthplace of this incredible world that Kevin Feige and Marvel have created, you know, and Downey and [Jon] Favreau kickstarted. So to have something from that film is a huge honor.’

The 5ft8in action star was on Hot Ones to promote his role as Peter Parker in Jon Watts’ three-quel Spider-Man: No Way Home, which hits UK/US theaters December 17.

Tom revealed that his ‘secret weapon’ to emoting with a mask on was to ‘pretend that my arms are dead.’

‘So that when I move my arms kind of swing around so Peter Parker’s hands are always doing the most crazy stuff. And for me, that has been a really great way of making him feel youthful while also, in moments of peril, and stuff like that,’ Holland explained.

‘But it’s also sometimes a great thing. Like, if I’ve gone out the night before and had a little bit too much to drink, if I’ve got a mask on, no one knows. So it’s fine.’

On Wednesday, the golf enthusiast was spotted strolling through Manhattan’s Central Park alongside another of his three little brothers, 22-year-old Harry.

Tom sported the sold-out pink $168 Supreme ‘Box Logo’ hoodie with a navy-blue beanie, blue jeans, and colorful sneakers.

Despite being outside, Holland protected himself and others from the coronavirus by wearing a black disposable face mask – perhaps more so to maintain his anonymity.

Also joining the Holland brothers was the Chaos Walking actor’s loyal bodyguard, Jake.
