Tobin Bell On ‘Saw VI,’ Hannibal Lecter [VIDEO EXCLUSIVE]
He’s the new Hannibal Lecter – the scary star of the hit movie, Saw VI. Tobin Bell takes questions exclusively from users of Uinterview.com.
He's a powerful character. He's a multidimensional guy. He's part philosopher, part scientist, he's very interested in the human condition and he has lots of interesting ideas and concepts that, every once in awhile, come shooting out at you in one of these Saw films. I think that helps to make you interested in him and he's also the driving force behind some amazing special effects that people
enjoy very much.
Saw VI has, amidst all of the twists and the turns and the surprises in the film, a very interesting story line that's very timely. John Kramer had some scenes with an actor named Peter
Outerbridge who plays the role of William in this film. Very timely story of a subject that is kind of paramount in the minds of a lot of
Americans these days. I'm not going to go into it in this interview but once you've seen the film I think you'll understand what I mean.
I don't think so. Nightmares don't often take the form - they seem to be about something but they're really about something else. But I don't take John Kramer home with me. He is himself, a technician, and I approach him from a very technical point of view.
I don't know the answer to that. There is a process that these films have to go through. Sometimes I hear about the process being a
bumpy one and this year I haven't heard anything about that so it might have been smooth. I think that I'll find out in the next couple of days before the film opens.
I think it would be a fascinating discussion. If you're talking about whether they'd be in some sort of strange combat, I don't think so. But I think that they might spend a lovely evening hanging around the lair listening to classical music and eating good food. I'd like to be a fly on the wall listening to that conversation.
