In my review of "ParaNorman," I said my favorite character of the film is Neil, the friend of Norman (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and the actor who voiced the role nearly stole the show! He is Mister Tucker Albrizzi who has the making of a great scene-stealer. While I interviewed the other actors face to face (Kodi Smit-McPhee, Anna Kendrick, Leslie Mann, Chris Butler, Sam Fell), I was bummed that Albrizzi was not one of the principals for the press junket.
But lo and behold, his publicist reached out to me, and we were able to Skype! I have nothing but respect for Mister Tucker, and I am sending all my good luck angels for his bright future!
So here it is. In this fun interview, we talked about:
*** His interest in making "ParaNorman" *** How his "ParaNorman" work compare to his past voice work *** How his character is really close to his personality. *** Does he believe in the paranormal? He has a cute story to tell! *** What does he want to do when he grows up? *** We compared "ParaNorman" action figures and toys! His is much, much better!
