Lex Luther, Kevin Imitation, Red Carpet discussed on Sci-Fi Talk: The First Season


So he's been a joy to have around, so he's doing an American accent from the nineteen forties before moving into present day and slowly evolving out of it. That's cool. Yeah, it's ridiculous. So what was your reaction when you found out about the the time the time things but time travel I didn't think they were gonNA bite. I've got the network was just going to stonewall it and say that's cute, but no. You know that's stupid. You know about and they didn't. They went the other way apparently, really excited and. Show their excitement. It's showed US data faith in us that we. Didn't know So that felt really good. And then we sort of ran with the ball and every time we did something like that, so it sort of it was a season where everything's all of a sudden started to click in. Everyone was thinking the same way as really cool. I can't wait to see how it turns out. It's not that have some fun tonight there you go back to work. sixteen tomorrow morning Oh, wow! No rest for the weary exactly three to meet again. Thanks thank you. I'll tell you. This guy is one of the nicest guys you ever WanNa talk to he is not pretentious. He is so easy to talk to. Really had a lot of fun meeting in Lego. Batman the movie. Clancy Brown voiced a kinder and maybe funnier lex Luther we spoke on the red carpet at the new. York Paley Center for this. I mean you played lex? Of course for many years now, actually probably the longest actor at played lex voice, wise but How does that happen? That's not a bad thing I know. How do we get so old? Then have done something for so long I don't get it and do it so well, but for this one you get a chance to light him up a little bit and must have been fun. It was fun. It was It was fun to read the script I I. I'm I was always familiar with their work. Because I've played the my son is ten and he. Has the LEGOS and they did the star. Wars Lego adaptations for the Games and I was totally into that. I thought it was kind of amazing. The you could create a game that a kid could love. Then his dad could love as well and they. They were very clever with how they would comment on the game, but. The universe and this was kind of interesting because this game to me as a as a full on script beforehand, it wasn't the game. It was a script so I. Thought well. That's I could do lex in this I would love to do Lexus and see. If we can turn LEX into a lego character, and it was very clever very fun script was not you know he was still the same do? You know. The joke was still the same dude. It was just. It was just a blast to read so I was. I was very happy to go on and do it and to be. Part of their work. You know finally you can do comedy, but in a way you can do it straight like you did. starship troopers I. Mean Your Drill Sergeant was just. Right there, but it was his. My wife and I were watching the other day. We're. Were crying laughing song. There you go? That's a good script. You know that's that's. That's a good script. Makes it easy? You don't work for the lab I. DON'T HAVE TO BE BILLY CRYSTAL guys. Well another thing that I think fans love you for. Is Your work on Earth, too? I just think you. You play great villains, but that guy. Yeah, but that guy was. I was great. You're going way back. Yeah, John Dan's. Interesting one. That was a little dated. Now I. Don't know if you've seen it, but. It's it's running now mobile devices. That's the way the world either I. I like to say that we were. We were the pre lost Series that we sort of. We sort of made loss possible. We were doing lost four lost with school. That's exactly it. Yeah, you were ahead of its time there. What's it like when you guys all? Get back together, you know Kevin. And all the guys from the original series and do. Like kind of getting the band back together kind of. A little bit I. You know I I Adore Kevin. I've I've always admired him. And love him doing that. It's Tim does not come and do it Tim Tim did it and they need then he's fell out of it and he's so busy that it's a real cool when he had him but I love Travis's Superman. Superman can change. It's like it's like the the The Camera Batmans they all change and the on cameras chances. The voice over Superman tend to change I love with Travis. Does and and I think I think Choi does does a very good Kevin Imitation? Another thing I have to mention is kind of all I think that was just what a great part for you!

Definitely must put in some of them. No actually that's the brilliance of these guys right here I would love to claim credit, but every time they had me a script. They've already run in the movie referencing all the although I did have a great time this season. I won't ruin it where I went up to Jomo lots. He's propaganda. Cut Out!
