When you picked up the script what was your first step in preparing to play a rat?‚Äù
‚ÄúHere‚Äôs the thing, you don‚Äôt get the script till you get there to do
the voiceover. They just give you your sides. I‚Äôve never read the whole
script, so more in general, I was focusing more on his obsession with
food and cooking rather than on his ratness. You‚Äôll see in the movie,
he‚Äôs trying to rise above his ratness. Because being obsessed with good
food and cooking makes him kind of a freak in the rat world. ‚ÄòWhat are
you talking about? We don‚Äôt care about that!‚Äô It‚Äôs the thing that you
are so in love with and obsessed with that everyone else is like,
And cooking isn‚Äôt something a rat would love.
Ratness ‚Äì did you coin that phrase?
‚ÄúYes, I‚Äôm coining the phrase ‚Äòratness‚Äô. Put a little ‚Ñ¢ in a circle.‚Äù
