Christopher Mintz-Plasse used a "complete moron vibe" basis to convincingly portray his newest film character.
The 23-year-old actor is famed for playing geeky roles in movies such as Superbad and Kick-Ass.
Christopher is lending his voice to animation How to Train Your Dragon 2, and admits he had to re-train certain parts of his vocal cords to convincingly portray the unfamiliar part.
"I definitely did something weird. They liked my voice, so they called and offered it to me. It was a bully, so I was thrown off, at first. I was like, 'I've never done anything like this.' I knew it was animation and I knew it was a bully, so I didn't want to go in sounding like this. I tried to get as evil and as bully-esque as possible, so I created this surfer idiot, complete moron vibe, and it works really well. You'll be like, 'I don't want to chill with that guy, ever!'" he laughed in an interview with Collider.com.
Christopher has done voice-over work in the past, including on Marmaduke. The star finds recording his lines for such films uncomfortable.
"It's weird, I am always nervous about doing it, and I always realise that it's so easy. I go in there and they want me to have fun, but on the drive over, I'm always clammy and I worry, 'What if my voice squeaks? What if I don't deliver it right?'" he mused. "Until you start saying the lines, it's always nerve-wracking, for some reason, and I've never gotten over that. But, it's fun to do. It's a good pay check!"
