Talking about what appealed to him the most about the film, Sam Rockwell aka Mr. Wolf says, “I think it dates back to when I was a little kid and I watched all those great classic cartoons like Snow White, Pinocchio, Bambi and Robin Hood. I am a big Ralph Bakshi fan, and I love films like Heavy Metal, Toy Story and Shrek too. Animation has always been a big deal for me. My favourite cartoons have an adult element to them, and when I read The Bad Guys I felt it had a shot at being something more than just ‘adult’.”
Lilly Singh, who plays Tiffany in the film, adds, “She is really cool. Although Tiffany says some questionable things and can at times be biased, she is also charming and endearing. So, it’s hard not to listen to her or to dislike her. I guess that one of the lessons from this movie is that sometimes the most charming and graceful people we know are not always telling us the most factual things.”
