Y’know what I absolutely love doing? Waking up at 4:30AM and staying awake until midnight. Those days are sweet.
That was sarcasm in case you didn’t catch on. It’s quite difficult to identity through text, isn’t it?
Y’know what else I absolutely love doing? Waking up at 4:30AM and staying awake until midnight, so I can talk to Tony Hale.
That wasn’t sarcasm. I was being totally sincere; chatting to that man was like the human version of four Red Bulls. He just woke me up, and I kinda loved it.
I’ve been obsessed with Tony for ages, with his roles in the likes of Arrested Development, Veep and Harley Quinn, and I assume it’ll be the exact same for his next project; The Mysterious Benedict Society on Disney+.
(Seriously, if I am left disappointed by a Disney project starring a hugely talented comedian, then there’s something wrong with the world we live in.)
As someone who has loved every single one of the Toy Story movies – but then again, if you find someone who doesn’t like them, you’ve found yourself a liar – I had to ask Tony, who played Forky in Toy Story 4, if he had spoken to Pixar about another sequel.
“The big wigs make those decisions,” said Tony. “If Pixar ever come knocking, you run. I would love to do more Forky.”
He continued to praise Pixar after his ten-episode series, Forky Asks a Question, and even lauded Inside Out as one of his favourite movies of all time.
Either the tiredness of doing a 19.5 hour long day has kicked in, or I’m now crying because I’m remembering Bing Bong.
THANKS A BUNCH, TONY. THANKS A BUNCH.
