Learn about the actors
Mr. Kelsey Grammer: Nah, it's like water off a duck's back. That's the kind of hairpin I am. I'm good at playing bad guys because I'm also good at playing good guys. I understand the human experience, and that's been my devotion for a long time now. So, that's why it's water off a duck's back.
Mr. Brad Lewis: Well, what do you think?
Mr. Doug Sweetland: Difficult.
Mr. Nicholas Stoller: The movie took years, so it kind of stretches out over the period of time in making the movie. Both Katie and Steve Glickman, who does Pigeon Toady, we both cast them as scratch actors who were supposed to be temporary voice actors, basically, at the beginning, but they were so good we ended up casting them. And then we very quickly--like, listening to, like, Danny Trejo's voice, we were like, "He has such"--it's like funny to imagine that character having kind of a gravely, scary voice and it just being this very sweet character. And so, it wasn't actually that hard.
Mr. Doug Sweetland: I don't think so either. The studio, Warner Bros., was really open to casting ideas and Katie is really new, this is her first big movie, taking essentially an unknown who so is the character and letting her just be that character. So, you know, Warner Bros. gave us a really wide berth.
Ms. Katie Crown: I feel great. Yes, I hope they like her. I think she's a really cool character. It's nice playing someone who's really fun, affable, but also super smart. She's an inventor. She builds this great plane. You know, she's got a lot of good ideas. It's really fun being able to play someone like that.
Mr. Andy Samberg: Good question.
Ms. Katie Crown: Yes, excellent.
Did we like the movie?
Be in the lookout for the scene with the penguins and a sleeping baby. The movie hits close to reality when dealing with babies and family situations. Although it is super funny it also has its sentimental moments that might get you with teary eyes.
