John Turturro Video Interview On 'Transformers 2'
John Turturro, star of the #1 movie Transformers 2, takes questions exclusively for users of Uinterview.com.
- Q: What was your favorite memory of working with Shia Labouf? - Misha, Philadelphia
- A: I got to do my underwear shtick. Shia was hysterically laughing the whole time. I get [director] Michael [Bay], Shia, Megan [Fox] and Ramon [Rodriquez] was a nice new addition. We tried to have fun but when arguments break out, they relied on me to talk to everybody as the father figure on the set–I’m the oldest guy, I’m older than the director!
- Q: It’s obviously your second time at this but did you feel like you were at a disadvantage since Shia grew up playing with Transformer toys? - Misha, Philadelphia
- A: The first time yes. I was like, ‘Wow, he’s really good at that!’ Then you look at how young he is and realize he probably has some at home. He still plays with them though he probably won’t admit that. But I have kids and that’s helpful. They are the ones who wanted me to do it.
- Q: What was the most difficult scene in the movie that you shot? - Claudine, Brooklyn - Uinterview User
- A: Maybe the most exciting was doing all the stuff on the pyramids because we did some of it in L.A. and they built a section of it where they could throw boulders at me and things. When I actually got to do it for real, which I think was over three separate days, we had to wait for the light to be right, that was kind of an out of body experience because they had all the crew there and you're doing all this talking on the radio and climbing and making believe there's a big robot on top. All these tourists are standing outside of this circle watching you. That was really interesting. I loved doing that and being in Petra was amazing and Jordan. Those locations were special and so was the Smithsonian in Washington, which is an amazing museum. I don't know which was the hardest. The hardest is when you're blowing up things and you get sand in your face and you're running and you can't see. Or when it's 120-degrees and you have a leather jacket and a jumpsuit underneath and youâre running all day. Those days when it's really really hot and you have to do it for 12 hours.
- Q: How was it working with those robots? It looked really cool. â“ Claudine, Brooklyn - Uinterview User
- A: It's just a pole with a tennis ball. There's an actor who does the voice sometimes. You don't really get a lot back from it. So Michael has to do all kinds of stuff saying, 'Do this, do that,' and it's like choreography. It's like mime. You have to make believe youâre a little kid with a cardboard box, how they transform it. The first time I did it I was really disoriented by it but I got used to it thatâs just part of the gig.
