The Igor Interview
The cast of Igor is amazed at the finished product. "I thought it was wonderful," Steve Buscemi says. "It seemed like the sensibility of the people making it was something that I could relate to. Sitting there, seeing it on the huge screen was just amazing. It looks incredible. I loved the film."

Comic chemistry to the extremeJennifer Coolidge and Eddie Izzard waltz into the room. Then, Izzard jets out. For what, Coolidge has no idea.
"I'm doing great, thank you," Coolidge says as she watches Izzard's head out into the hallway of the 15th floor of the Beverly Hills Four Seasons.
The unexpected break allows Coolidge to give a shout out to her beautiful green dresses' designer. "This is Nicole Miller," she proudly says. "What I like about Nicole is sometimes I go into the stores and I think 'this is a great dress for the premiere.' Then it's like five grand. Nicole is quite reasonable you know what I mean. This was a dollar."
Upon hearing a couple of people sharing a hysterical laugh, Izzard, ever the comedian, returns in his flamboyant, yet uniquely sophisticated glory with that British accent.
It is easy to see there is difficulty getting words in when Izzard and Coolidge are going at it. One thing this writer would love to see after witnessing Igor, these two reunite in a live-action comedy. They're priceless.
Sean Hayes and the helmerSean Hayes and director Anthony Leondis were the last to visit with SheKnows and their pairing was perfect.
"He's much more interesting than I am," Hayes says of his director. The man who took McKenna's dream and made it a visual cornucopia of fabulousness is taking the praise in stride.
"He saw me at Ralph's," Hayes interupts as Leondis laughs. "He was bagging."
Sense a universal humor with this cast?
"We wrote the part for Sean," Leondis says in all seriousness. "We wrote the part for Molly, for Jennifer and we were praying that they would say yes. If not, we'd have someone else do a bad impression of Sean Hayes."
"He'd probably do a better Sean Hayes than me," Hayes adds.
"Nobody plays the arrogant stupid guy like Sean," Leondis says obvious to Hayes comment. "Nobody is better than Sean."
Hayes came aboard immediately after seeing initial drawings and the script. "I thought it was amazing that Chris and Tony created a new kind of tone and world and feeling that we haven't seen before. It's amazing that Exodus and MGM and everybody helped do that. It's exciting to be part of something new. The sharp edges of the drawings, the darkness of it, but still kid friendly and eccentric, I loved all of that."
