Dylan O’Brien’s vacation from Beacon Hills has been anything but restful. The “Teen Wolf” star (who plays Stiles on the MTV series) has been hard at work filming the upcoming dystopian drama “The Maze Runner.”

Based on the young-adult novel by James Dashner, “The Maze Runner” centers around teen Thomas (O’Brien), who awakens in a rusty elevator with no memory of who he is. What he does come to find out is that he’s been delivered to the middle of an intricate maze, along with a slew of other boys, who have been trying to find their way out of the ever-changing labyrinth — all the while establishing a functioning society within the enclosure they’ve come to call “The Glade.”

With production on “The Maze Runner” still in full swing, MTV News was lucky enough to get its hands on five exclusive first-look stills from the film, featuring O’Brien and his young co-stars, including Kaya Scodelario and Aml Ameen. From an image of a visibly injured Thomas, to a gang of boys running to the supposed safety of the sky-scraping structure, the tenor of these images is clear: danger lurks around every corner.

Eager for more scoop on “The Maze Runner”? The cast (including O’Brien and Scodelario), along with director Wes Ball and author Dashner, will be hosting a Twitter chat on Monday, July 8 to answer fan questions. Submit your queries using #MazeRunnerChat and be sure to follow @MazeRunnerMovie on Twitter.

“The Maze Runner,” also starring Patricia Clarkson, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Will Poulter, hits theaters February 14, 2014.

It’s a big week for Dylan O’Brien. Not only does his wildly popular MTV show, Teen Wolf, make its return for a highly anticipated third season, but he’s also jumping onto the big screen in The Internship, a comedy flick that stars classic funnymen Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, plus Max Minghella, Josh Gad, Rose Byrne… you get the idea!

We caught up with the busy actor to find out about how he prepared for his comedic turn on the big screen and why Teen Wolf fans are the best fans.

Between Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, it must have been so much fun shooting with the cast.
Oh, it was like summer camp. We shot for two and a half months, pretty long for a comedy. It allowed us to really take our time, really get to know our characters, and really get to know one another.

In the film you’re an intern at Google. Did you shoot at Google HQ in San Francisco?
Most of the shooting actually was done at our recreated Google at Georgia Tech. It was insanely impressive because Google is not an easy place to recreate. It’s kind of insane. And then we got to do two weeks at the real Google, and that was so cool. Seeing the real Google and talking to the real Googlers—it was just so fascinating. The whole world that they live in is so different, and it’s their workplace. It’s like a playground.

Were you ever an intern yourself?
No, never! I’ve been acting since I was 18. I’m kind of just getting to the age now where I’d be going for internships. So yeah, I kind of missed out on that whole little thing. But my sister is an intern, actually, which is really funny. All of my friends were applying for these internships last summer, and I was filming a movie called The Internship. A bunch of them called me to joke, saying, “Hey, congratulations, I heard you got that internship.”

Did you do any research for your role?
Yeah, I spoke to the Googlers while I was there. They had Googlers volunteering for background throughout the day, so if you were sitting in a scene, you were sitting with a bunch of real-life Googlers. I would just pick their brains the whole time and they would do the same back to us. And a bunch of them laid out what intern week was really like. But it’s not intern week, it’s actually like an intern summer course, which isn’t exactly how we depict it in the movie. It’s crazy hearing the hoops they have to jump through. And to even build that initial resume to even be approved for an intern week, where then you’re not even guaranteed a job, it’s just so crazy.

What was it like working with Vince and Owen?
Oh my god, it was so cool. It was like a dream—like one of those things that you know was real so you tell yourself it was, but it almost feels like it didn’t even happen. It’s so crazy. It was the coolest experience ever, for all of us. I’m 21 years old. Five years ago, I was just like a normal kid in high school with my buddies going out and seeing Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn movies. Literally, nonstop quoting these guys around school and joking around all of the time. So it’s just so crazy that I got to work with them. I’ll always have the two different memories that I’ll go back and forth between of being a kid, seeing Wedding Crashers for the first time in theaters and then now, being 21 and getting to be in their next movie together. I mean that’s just the craziest thing in the world.

Was there a lot of improv on set?
So much. The scenes would change and it was always on the fly. We would always be riffing. Sometimes Vince would want to go off on something and he would. He would always allow anybody to throw in anything they wanted—he was so game for it. That’s what’s so fun about working with those guys.

Did you have a secret backstory for your character?
I had this whole kind of background thing: First of all, he has a British dad. I don’t know why I thought that. Maybe because his last name is Twombly, so I thought that was an English sort of thing. And also because of his sort of his cynical, sarcastic view on things. He’s kind of like an English person without being an English person.

What do you like to do on your days off?
Sleep. I always like to go see my parents when I can. They’re in LA. Teen Wolf shoots there, so whenever I get a day off I like to go have dinner with them or watch Walking Dead or hang out with my girlfriend. Just throw in some normalcy.

Developed by Jeff Davis, the hit MTV drama series Teen Wolf has returned for a super-sized, 24-episode third season. Having picked up four months after the events that nearly ended Jackson’s (Colton Haynes) life and resurrected Peter Hale (Ian Bohen), Season 3 finds teen werewolf Scott McCall (Tyler Posey) and his friends Stiles (Dylan O’Brien), Lydia (Holland Roden) and Allison (Crystal Reed) beginning their junior year of high school while having to deal with a new threat has arrived in Beacon Hills – a deadly pack of Alpha werewolves intent on bringing Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) into their fold.

With the filming relocated to Los Angeles, Collider was invited to check out the set and chat with the cast for a series of exclusive interviews. While hanging out in his trailer on a break from shooting, actor Dylan O’Brien talked about where Stiles is at in Season 3, Stiles and Lydia teaming up, the chances of Stiles actually finding love, where he stands with both Scott and Derek, whether he wishes someone would turn Stiles into a werewolf, how much fun he’s had constantly learning new things about his character, and how nervous he gets about pulling off the dramatic side of the show. Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

Collider: Where is Stiles at, in Season 3?

DYLAN O’BRIEN: Stiles is focusing more on himself, and he’s trying to better himself. And he’s focusing more on his detective work. He considers himself an expert on the wolf stuff now.

Now that Lydia (Holland Roden) knows about what’s going on, is it fun to have that shift in dynamics, with her relationship with Stiles?

O’BRIEN: It was so sad when Lydia didn’t know about any of the werewolves, or anything. Lydia was in the dark for so long, as were a lot of people, but she was left in the dark so much longer than anyone else. Now, she’s finally a part of things. With us and our relationship, it becomes more of a team thing, working together, and not so much always about the love, even though that’s still there, on one side. And she loves me, in a way. So, it’s cool to see that dynamic change. It’s cool to see Stiles and Lydia pull together, and Lydia come to the group. She’s also really useful because of how smart she is. It’s good to have her involved.

Do things ever get awkward between them, or is he okay with the way things are with Lydia?

O’BRIEN: I think it’s always been a little awkward. What’s always been awkward is the unreciprocated love. Now, it’s at a point where it’s not awkward. He’s made peace with loving her, and not necessarily having that love returned.

Is there any chance that Stiles will find love that’s actually returned?

O’BRIEN: Yeah, there always is, on this show. And there definitely is, this season.

Where are things at with Scott (Tyler Posey) and Stiles’ friendship, at this point?

O’BRIEN: I don’t know if you could say things are stronger than ever, right now, but the strength of their brotherhood is still there and will always be there. This season, they definitely take an even further route from each other than they have, in previous seasons. It’s all getting so crazy that it could be getting to the point where something comes between them, but we haven’t gotten there yet.

How are things between Stiles and Derek (Tyler Hoechlin)?

O’BRIEN: They’re fine. It is what it is with them. They accept each other, despite their annoyance towards one another. Even if they don’t directly care, their connection through Scott leads them to ultimately care for each other’s well-being. They wouldn’t want to see the other one get hurt, for Scott’s sake. That’s always their connection.

If last week’s episode of Teen Wolf taught us anything, it’s that virgins are not welcome in Beacon Hills.

Unfortunately, that’s bad news for poor Stiles (Dylan O’Brien), whose best option for shredding his V-card fell victim to a mysterious killer. Lydia (Holland Roden), ahem, has been busy.
But she’s not the only one getting busy on the show. Danny (Keahu Kahuanui), one of the show’s few openly gay characters, will see his own romantic storyline unfold this season.

Check out our brand new interview with Dylan O’Brien!

The 21-year-old actor has a hilarious new role in the comedy The Internship!

The film tells the story of Billy (Vince Vaughn) and Nick (Owen Wilson), fired salesman who try to prove they are not obsolete by getting an internship at Google with a bunch of young, brilliant college students.

Meanwhile, Dylan is also busy shooting the highly-anticipated upcoming film adaptation of The Maze Runner, while the third season of Teen Wolf just kicked off.

JJJ caught up with Dylan in between filming to get the scoop on his new movie!

Click inside to check out our interview with Dylan O’Brien…

JustJaredJr.com – Dylan O’Brien

JustJaredJr.com: Hi Dylan! So tell us about the audition process for this role.

Dylan O’Brien: It was cool. It was just a regular couple reads, regular audition at first. You go through a casting director and then you get to the directors and producers. And reading with Vince was the highlight of that process. That was the last step. We all got to go in and audition with Vince. He was so cool in the room and so giving. He would just riff with you forever. It was my longest audition I think I ever had. And most of which was all made up. The audition should have only taken five minutes, technically, but then Vince would make it a whole thing and you would just go with him. He’d basically just see if you could hang, kind of. It was cool because a lot of what we said in the audition room made it into the movie and it kind of established our dynamic with them.

JJJ: You’ve been doing comedy back since your YouTube days, but that had to be pretty intimidating.

DO: Well, hell yeah (laughs)! Yeah, I’m comfortable improving, more so than having lines I think. But the Vince factor and just auditioning in general is very nerve-racking. Going into a room, you have like eight people looking at you and you’re sitting there, and you just have to do it. But what was so great was that it was such an awesome room. I was comfortable instantly. Once Vince starts riffing with you, you kind of settle in. The producers were all fun and great too. Everyone was just laughing. It was a lot of fun. Intimidating for maybe like a second, definitely. How could it not be? But then instantly comfortable and just a great time.

JJJ: You play a nice guy in most of your roles. Was it nice to play sort of a jerk in this film?

DO: Yeah, it was so much fun. That was intimidating at first. I was so afraid, like “Oh my God, I don’t know if I’m going to be able to pull this off.” The whole dynamic I established with Vince was that I just this jerk to him. And I was like, “Are people going to buy that?” But yeah, it was so much fun. And he does come around. Vince and Owen’s characters teach him to open up and let his guard down, let loose and have fun for a second and not be so uptight and dismissive of everyone around him.

JJJ: You look pretty good in those hipster glasses! Those were fake, right?

DO: Yeah, they were fake. When we went in for my first fitting, we were just like establishing what was happening and they were giving me this hipster-y vibe, all these layers with cardigans and stuff. I thought it was hilarious. And then so, the glasses for me, were just the classic top-off. I don’t know why, but it just so perfectly put together that sort of hipster-y… like “If I have to wear glasses, I want to make them cool glasses” thing, you know? Shawn [Levy] loved the lgasses too. So from then, we were just full-on with the glasses and the beanie too (laughs).

JJJ: If you could intern anywhere, where would it be?

DO: Google, for sure (laughs). If it’s anything like we shot, that’s the one to do. Just for the sake of answering the question, Google. I have no shot, obviously. But that would be even kind of fun going into with no shot because then it takes all the pressure off and I can just have fun (laughs).

Choose Something You Love!
“Don’t just take an internship because all your friends are doing it or you need to do something during the summer. You have to want it! I’ve seen some of my friends end up miserable at their internships because they have no desire to work at the company. Choose something you genuinely love!”

Intern For Someone You Admire
“In real life, I’d love to intern for a director and see the other side of the industry. My life would be hell, but I’m sure I’d learn so much. I’d be a good way to shadow somebody who knows what they’re doing.”

What To Expect At Google
“Google is a fascinating place to intern. Everyone has their dogs in their offices. They have volleyball courts, bowling allies, and crazy bikes that fit eight people—they have meetings while they ride around!”
