What a cool call! I just joined several other bloggers including Deb on the Rocks and Peeling an Orange with a Screwdriver on a call with Jason Schwartzman who plays Mr. Fox’s son Ash in Fantastic Mr. Fox!

Call Highlights:

  • I love Jason’s voice
  • Quote: “What, I’m on the ground digging with George Clooney and Meryl Streep?!” He was thrilled to be there with two great actors. The question was something like ‘what was the most fun moment during filming?’)
  • Jason was obsessed with digging as a child

Movie Synopsis:

FANTASTIC MR. FOX is visionary director Wes Anderson’s first animated film, utilizing classic handmade stop-motion techniques to tell the story of the best-selling children’s book by Roald Dahl (author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach). The film features the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Wally Wolodarsky, Eric Anderson, Michael Gambon, Willem Dafoe, Owen Wilson, and Jarvis Cocker.

Mr. and Mrs. Fox (Clooney and Streep) live an idyllic home life with their son Ash (Schwartzman) and visiting young nephew Kristofferson (Eric Anderson). But after twelve years of quiet domesticity, the bucolic existence proves too much for Mr. Fox’s wild animal instincts. Soon he slips back into his old ways as a sneaky chicken thief and in doing so, endangers not only his beloved family, but the whole animal community. Trapped underground without enough food to go around, the animals band together to fight against the evil Farmers – Boggis, Bunce and Bean – who are determined to capture the audacious, fantastic Mr. Fox at any cost. In the end, he uses his natural instincts to save his family and friends.

Fantastic Mr. Fox is now playing in select cities and opens nationwide on Thanksgiving.

It was a very cool conference call. He had a lot of stories to tell. The one that I really paid attention too, was when they were out by the tree doing their lines with the sound guy. And then having Bill Murray do the voice of the wolf. He has a great way of telling stories.
