Hugh Jackman: Baldwin gives Rise of the Guardians 'presence'

Nov 15 2012, 12:04am CST | by

Hugh Jackman believes Alec Baldwin gives 'Rise of the Guardians' ''great presence'' and he thinks Isla Fisher brings a ''beautiful humanity'' to the motion picture.

Hugh Jackman says Alec Baldwin gives 'Rise of the Guardians' ''great presence''.
The 44-year-old actor lends his voice to the role of E. Aster Bunnymund (Easter Bunny) in the forthcoming animation adventure movie with Alec Baldwin - who voices North (Santa Claus) - and Hugh believes their co-star Isla Fisher (Tooth Fairy) gives the motion picture a ''beautiful humanity''.
He said: ''We have many accents, it's like the most international voice cast you've ever heard in an animated movie. You have Alec Baldwin with his huge, deep voice and his big character, giving the film great presence. Then Isla Fisher has given it such beautiful humanity, she's very funny and she plays a very fast, manic character.
''I think Chris Pine is terrific as Jack Frost because he just feels very believable and relatable and human. I tried to throw in as many 'Aussie-isms' as I could. I tried to make him sound as unique as possible. I think as a group they all sound very different, and it melds together very well.''
While Hugh enjoys his co-stars' characters in the movie, he loves portraying the Easter Bunny because he is ''pretty badass'' and a cross between fictional action hero Indiana Jones and the late Australian wildlife expert Steve Irwin.
He added to FlicksandBits.com: ''This Easter Bunny is the coolest character you've ever met, he's pretty badass. Think Indiana Jones with a touch of Steve Irwin. He protects nature, he's a brilliant martial artist and he's very strong. He can jump high, of course, and he has these two boomerangs on his hips, instead of six-shooters, which he uses to great effect.
''It was great that they allowed me to play him as this irascible Australian - tough, a little bit grumpy, and no-nonsense. He doesn't muck around. He's got a job to do and he's going to get it done, no matter what. That was certainly fun to play.''

Hugh Jackman Visits "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon"
Neill Blomkamp‘s next film, Chappie, doesn’t have a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, but if this year is proving anything, it’s that panels aren’t the only way to raise awareness for a project. Sometimes something as simple as an evocative poster will do the trick. That’s exactly what Sony used in the case of Chappie, which stars Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver and Sharlto Copley. Check out the first Chappie poster below. ...

Premiere Of Marvel's "Guardians Of The Galaxy" - Red Carpet
Guardians of the Galaxy takes place literally worlds away from The Avengers, and yet both superhero teams occupy the same universe at the same time and even know some of the same people. It wouldn’t be totally inconceivable for them to cross paths at some point, and recent comments from Kevin Feige suggest they may do just that. If you’re holding out hope for the either group to join forces with the X-Men, however, yo ...

TimesTalks Presents: "Hedwig And The Angry Inch" With Neil Patrick Harris, John Cameron Mitchell And Stephen Trask

2014 Tony Awards - Arrivals
The Belmont Stakes and the Tony Awards take place this weekend and in both cases there are significant amounts of prestige and money at stake. There’s even a chance that Broadway will have its own version of a Triple Crown winner, if Mark Rylance takes home both of the Tonys for which he’s nominated (okay, double crown). Despite strict rules about campaigning for Tonys, producers pulled out all the stops at their disposal to plug their shows, and who could blame t ...
