Hoult was first spotted at the age of three, sitting in the audience with his mother at a play. The director noticed and suggested that he should try out for one. He attended Ranelagh School, made his professional debut in the 1996 film Intimate Relations , and worked mainly in television, until the success of About a Boy, in which he plays Marcus.

In February 2011, at the age of 21, Hoult was offered the lead role in Jack the Giant Killer. He filmed the project later that year, and also began work on the teen film Warm Bodies, with Teresa Palmer. Both films are scheduled for a summer 2012 release.
