“I was actually in the college admissions process while I was making the movie,” he told film reporters during round-table interviews. “Thankfully, I'm done now. But I was looking at schools right before making the movie, and I'd go visit these college fairs with my Mom. And there was this one college fair where I didn't see any schools that were in New York or L.A., which is where I want to go.

“So I decided to use it for character research,” he said. “And so I went around in character as Jeremiah, pretending to be this math and science genius, which I'm horrible in math and science in real life. And I started talking to the M.I.T. guy, and we really bonded. And we were talking and I was telling him about all my math and science achievements.

“And at the last moment, when he was asking for my name and email, I felt bad and gave him my real name and email,” Wolff said. “But M.I.T. called me twice a week for a couple of months after that, and I just had to tell them that I'm really not good at math and science.

“Anyway, now I've applied to a couple of schools and I should find out soon if I got in — but one of them is not Princeton.”
