Legendary character actor Timothy Spall, who has appeared in almost every movie ever made, expressed his relief at not having to make like Andy Serkis by wearing a motion-capture suit for Idiotic Flop of a Sequel (officially titled Alice In Wonderland: Through The Looking Glass), in which he'll be reprising his role as Bayard the bloodhound.
"A man of my years [Spall is 57] rolling around in a jumpsuit pretending to be a bloodhound, would have been eccentric to say the least, and embarrassing to say the worst. I leave that to the genius of the animators."
He had to learn to paint for his portrayal of the title role in Mike Leigh's Mr. Turner, and though he hasn't kept up with it, he says, "I do a little bit of doodling. I draw my wife birthday cards and Valentine’s cards. I drew her one [for] her birthday."
He will forever be flawless just for being in one of my favorite films of all time.
