Andy Serkis Becomes Gollum To Read Trump’s Tweets


LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I’M
TERRIBLY EXCITED BECAUSE MY NEXT GUEST IS BEST KNOWN AS GOLLUM,
BUT HE NOW STARS IN “WAR FOR THE
PLANET OF THE APES.” PLEASE WELCOME– MY PRECIOUS–
ANDY SERKIS! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( BAND PLAYING )>>Stephen: NICE TO SEE YOU
AGAIN. FIES TO HAVE YOU ON.>>FANTASTIC TO SEE YOU AGAIN.>>Stephen: ONE OF THE THINGS
I WOULD SAY TO PEOPLE WHO SAY, LIKE, ANDY SERKIS DOES THIS
AMAZING MOTION CAPTURE PERFORMER. I GO, NO, HE’S A FANTASTIC
PERFORMER FAMOUS TORE DOING MOTION CAPTURE BECAUSE PEOPLE
EVEN TO THIS DAY DON’T NECESSARILY UNDERSTAND THAT
THAT’S YOU ALL THE TIME DURING THAT PERFORMANCE AND THE MAGIC
OF MOTION CAPTURE IS ABLE TO MAKE YOUR PERFORMANCE INTO AN
APRIL OR A SHRIVELED HOBBIT OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. ( LAUGHTER )
HOW MANY DIFFERENT NON-HUMANS HAVE YOU CONE?>>THE WEIRD THING IS WHEN WE
FINISHED WITH THE LORD OF THE RINGS, I WANTED TO GO BACK TO MY
CAREER AS A NORMAL ACTOR AND STAGE AND FILM AND TV AND THEN
PETER JACKSON SAID, DO YOU WANT TO PLAY KING KONG? I THOUGHT I WILL GO FROM A 3 AND
A HALF FOOT RING JUNKY TO A 10-FOOT GORILLA. THIS IS THE END OF TYPE CASTING
AS WE KNOW IT. ANYONE CAN PLAY ANYTHING.>>Stephen: I GUESS SEVEN
YEARS AGO, MY BOYS AND I LUCKILY WENT TO NEW ZEALAND.>>I REMEMBER.>>Stephen: AND WERE INVITED
BY PETER TO COME TO THE SET FOR THE HOBBIT. ON THE WAY THERE WE HAD A
LAYOVER ON L.A. AND SAW THE ORIGINAL PLANET OF THE APES
MOVIE WITH MR. FRANCO. MY BOYS ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT. IT WAS A BRILLIANT PERFORMANCE. THEY SAID, I WONDER HOW MUCH OF
THAT IS MR. SERKIS AND HOW MUCH IS MOTION CAPTURE IS THIS I
SAID, WHEN WE GET TO NEW ZEALAND, WE’LL ASK. WE WENT TO STONE STREET SUED
OWES AND THEY ACTUALLY PEELED BACK YOUR PERFORMANCE FOR US IN
ONE OF THE BEST SCENES OF THE MOVIE AND WE SAW IT’S ALL OF
YOU. WE HAVE A WONDERFUL CLIP ONE OF
YOUR PEOPLE SENT ALONG OF CAESAR IN THE MOVIE GIVING A PEOPLE. CAN YOU SET THAT UP FOR US?>>THIS IS ACTUALLY NOT IN THE
MOVIE. THIS IS TO DEMONSTRATE
PERFORMANCE CAPTURE. IT IS ACTING. PEOPLE THINK THERE IS A MYSTERY
TO IT. THIS CLEARLY DEMONSTRATES THE
ACTOR IS THERE GIVING THE PERFORMANCE, AND THAT THE
TRANSLATION INTO THE APRIL’S FACE THE DONE IN POST, BUT YOU
CAN SEE ALL THE NUANCE OF THE PERFORMANCE IS CREATED AND
AUTHORED BY THE ACTORS.>>Stephen: THE DIGITIZING IS
SERVING YOUR PERFORMANCE.>>CORRECT.>>Stephen: JIM? IT IS MY HOPE THAT OUT OF
THIS SOLEMN OCCASION A BETTER WORLD WILL EMERGE OUT OF THE
BLOOD AND CARNAGE OF THE PAST. A WORLD FOUND UPON FAITH AND
UNDERSTANDING. A WORLD DEDICATED TO THE WISH
FOR FREEDOM. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>THAT’S A GOOD COMMON ADMINISTRATION.>>Stephen: IT’S ACTUALLY —
IT’S A GOOD DEMONSTRATION.>>Stephen: IT’S BEAUTIFUL. THE FIRST PERFORMANCE PEOPLE GOT
TO KNOW YOU IS GOLLUM. YOU’RE DOING TWO DIFFERENT
SIDES. I WONDERED IF I COULD ASK A
FAVOR.>>YES.>>Stephen: I HAVE IT RIGHT
HERE, I WOULD LOVE IF I COULD HEAR EITHER SMEEGLE OR GOLLUM
READ THESE TWEETS BY DONALD TRUMP. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( PIANO RIFF )>>Stephen: IT’S ALSO IN
THERE.>>”THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA HAS
NEVER BEEN SO WRONG OR SO DIRTY. PURPOSELY INCORRECT STORIES AND
PHONY SOURCES TO MEET THEIR AGENDA OF HATE. SAD!”
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) DESPITE THE CONSTANT NEGATIVE
PRESS, COVFEFE! WHAT’S COVFEFE, PRECIOUS?>>Stephen: NO ONE KNOWS. THAT’S THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
I GOTTA SAY, THEY ACTUALLY SOUND BETTER THAT WAY. ( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: IN “WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES,” THIS IS A
THIRD OF THE MOVIES, HOW HAS CAESAR, THE CHIMPANZEE WHO WAS
GIVEN THE VIRUS –>>THAT’S RIGHT, SO BASICALLY
CAESAR WAS AN ORPHANED BABY CHIME BAN SEE WHOSE MOTHER DIED
IN A L LABORATORY WHO WAS GIVEN CURE AND IT TURNED INTO A VIRUS
AND KILLS A LOT OF THE HUMANS, AND BASICALLY CAESAR IS AN APRIL
THAT THEN GETS AN ENHANCED INTELLIGENCE, A RAPID ESCALATION
OF ITS EVOLUTION, FEELS LIKE. WE SEE HIM GROW AND EVOLVE AND
BECOME MORE HUMAN LIKE. THE WAY HE SPEAKS AND CONVERSES,
THE WAY HE SPEAKS, YOU SAW A DEMONSTRATION, AND BECOMES MORE
HUMAN LIKE. HE BASICALLY REPRESENTS THE
HUMAN CONDITION WE SEE THROUGH THE EYES OF APES. WE ARE THE AUDIENCE INVITED TO
SEE THE WORLD THROUGH THE EYES OF APES. BUT IN THIS MOVIE, THIS
EMPATHETIC CHARACTER IS — AN EVENT HAPPENS AT THE BEGINNING
OF THE MOVIE THAT SETS HIM OFF ON A JOURNEY OF REVENGE AND
HATRED WHICH IS COMPLETELY OUT OF CHARACTER FOR HIM. THE WAR OF THE PLANET OF THE
APES WAS BASICALLY THE WAR FOR CAESAR’S SOUL. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES IS IN THEATER THIS
FRIDAY. ANDY SERKIS, EVERYBODY.
