Bill Nighy as Rattlesnake Jake in Rango
Bill Nighy about his role in Rango
I’m a rattlesnake with a machine gun,” Nighy said. “That was done like a sort of radio play or like rehearsing a theater play, where everybody was in the room at the same time. And they filmed it. Crash [Mark “Crash” McCreery], who did all the drawings for Pirates—which people may not have seen, but he’s an incredible artist—he’s done all the images, all the animation, the drawings. I only just did [my voice over] at the beginning of the year, so it’ll be a while. But I got to meet Harry Dean Stanton. I didn’t know what to say. Suddenly he was there, and I couldn’t think of anything to say.”
Rango is scheduled to open on the 18th of March 2011.
