Jun 08 2020

Lovely behind-the-scenes chat with Jeff Fowler, the Oscar-nominated director on unleashing Jim Carrey, the “swagger” of his blue hero, and the “instant gratification” of watching the final Sonic the Hedgehog movie with audiences. “Every teenager can see a bit of themselves in Sonic,” says Jeff Fowler. “So, this was about taking someone people have loved for 30 years and telling a film story with him.”

Ben Schwartz has written for both Funny Or Die and C-3PO. He is beloved for his acclaimed role as Jean-Ralphio in Parks And Recreation. He has been in everything from Modern Family to The Simpsons. And he is the killer comedian behind the hilarious website RejectedJokes.com.

But all of that pales into the background for Ben Schwartz when it comes to his latest role – getting to be the adorable, sassy and fast as hell hero in Sonic The Hedgehog. “I get to play something I have loved desperately for my whole life,” he says.

Five minutes with Josh Gad aka Olaf in Frozen

Apr 17 2020

Last November I was delighted to meet Josh Gad, best known for voicing the affable snowman Olaf in Disney’s Frozen and Frozen II. Frozen, which opened in 2013, is the highest grossing animated film of all time. Six years later, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen II, created from the same Academy Award®-winning team — directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, and producer Peter Del Vecho — and featuring the voices of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad, and the music of Oscar®-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, was received with equal enthusiasm.

Josh has a special talent to play sweet animalesque characters. In 2017 and 2019, Gad voiced the dog Bailey (and other dogs’ characters) in A Dog’s Purpose and sequel A Dog’s Journey, films that celebrate the special connection between humans and their pooches.
