It’s called The Thing.
How did that come about?
It’s a real doll from 1939 called the “Thing.” The Thing is not very scary at all. In other words, what I’m trying to say is: In the 1940s and 1950s, a man named Harry Rimmer made this toy as a way to try to trick kids into thinking they were having fun. [Laughs] It was a way to pretend he was a man.
Did you think he was serious?
I didn’t even know what the Thing was. I’d met the guy.
Did he ever have the name Harry Rimmer?
I don’t know how many iterations he had of the character. I wasn’t really into that. I can’t remember. But he was never considered dangerous. He was someone who was working his way up – that’s what made them scary.
There are different ways that you can interpret the opening shot here. It could be either playful or mean.
Well, we’re only about two and a half minutes into the movie.
In my mind, the whole world is a stage, the dollhouse and all: the audience is there waiting, but there’s something happening behind you. It’s very much the actor’s character interacting with that world.
You have a wonderful line: “I’m not responsible for the sound of my voice.” Is that a metaphor for not being in control with how you speak and what you’re thinking?
It’s an open-ended question, really, and we get the answer.
When did The Thing learn that he was in trouble?
It just sort of happened.
What happened to the Thing’s parents or any of his family?
In the original comic book, [Frank] D’Angelo and Della Reese didn’t meet the Thing until the end of [Avengers] Iron Man, so that leaves an opening there for him to meet his family. That’s why we get the introduction of his mother and dad.
So he went to their house?
Why did they have that conversation with him?
To figure out when The Thing would be released?
[Laughs] Was they in a big hurry?
No. It’s just something that’s there so that the story would move forward.
Did you find much of The Thing’s personality when you first read
