Interviewing one of this summer's biggest stars, like, for instance, Taylor Kitsch, can be difficult. Asking the important questions while he's shooting hockey pucks at you is an entirely different story.

The star of "John Carter" and "Battleship" took aim at MTV News' Josh Horowitz while also taking your questions as a part of "MTV First: John Carter." Though he's known for his work on the football field in "Friday Night Lights," Kitsch originally hails from the Great White North, so hockey is in his blood.

That isn't a problem until you're the one playing goalie. During their interview, Horowitz strapped himself in and faced down Kitsch for a no-holds-barred round of movie questions and hockey.

But before all that, Kitsch will premiere a never-before-seen clip from "John Carter" on MTV. You'll have to tune in Thursday, March 1, at 7:56 p.m. ET to see the brand-new footage. Immediately afterward, on MTV.com, Kitsch will answer fan-submitted questions while shooting hockey pucks at his interviewer. It should be a good time.

It's going to be an epic showdown on the ice, and it's all going to take place on MTV and MTV.com.

In "John Carter," Kitsch plays a Confederate officer transported to Barsoom, or Mars, as it's more commonly referred to by humans. There, Carter finds himself embroiled in an epic war between two races for the fate of the planet.

The film will be released March 9 in digital 3-D and IMAX 3-D.
