FOX's Ashley Dvorkin talks with Steve Zahn from "War for the Planet of the Apes" the newest installment of the Planet of the Apes trilogy... That's in this "FOX Movie Profile":
I'm Ashley Dvorkin with your FOX Movie Profile.
'War for the Planet of the Apes' continues the trilogy with a chapter that star Steve Zahn says is both epic and full of heart:
(Zahn) "It's about character, it's about what Caesar is going through, it's a biblical story."
Zahn is introducing a new character into this world called 'Bad Ape' who brings some humor into the mix:
(Zahn) "I didn't go about it thinking about as 'Bad Ape' as this kind of funny guy, I thought about him as this real tragic character, but just because he's a different speed and you have these apes who are 'We. Go. Right.' And here's this guy who's 'oh oh oh' he's so excited he can't find the words and that just creates a bit of a lighter fare."
As for working for the first time with performance capture, he says it's really not that much different from his other acting jobs:
(Zahn) "It's just my costume is this gray unitard with a backpack and a helmet with a camera that sits in front of my face and records me at all times."
