Movieweb interviews 'Sawi IV' star Tobin Bell
Wednesday, June 13, 2007 - reddit
I've always liked Tobin Bell, he's got a very creepy and scary sounding voice. It wouldn't matter if he said "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Birthday", you just know it's going to be the last one you'll ever see when you hear it from that voice, and this isn't in direct relation to the character he plays in Saw
either. Bell was every bit a scheming shadowy character in the last third of 24's
It didn't matter what he was doing, what he was saying, and you don't even have to see him on the screen. All you have to do is hear that voice, and you know you've come to your end. He has that power, that air of doom, and it can be the most wonderful thing in the world to write for.Read a bit of this interview and just imagine Bell reading his own response, and it's also creepy all by itself -- a movie interview. I love it.
Question: Will we see any more of Jigsaw's love interest, the mystery girl that comes to him in the flashback while his brain is being worked on?
Tobin Bell: What makes you ask that? Is that something you are interested in?
Question: What do you mean?
Tobin Bell: Was that little flashback interesting to you?
Question: I found it very interesting, then they didn't go any further with it.
Tobin Bell: Oh, okay. That's right. That's right. You are going to find out more about that in this film. That's why I asked you. Yeah, you will find out who she is. But you just never know how things register in people's minds. Especially when something comes up as quickly as that did. So, that's good. I'm glad you were interested in that.
I haven't seen hardly any of these films other than the last half-hour of the first one, but I love a good performance by a good actor like Bell, and it's enough to make me sit through the unnecessary gore and stuff to see what he does with the material. I'm looking into checking them out this weekend, so that'll be 'interesting.'
Read the rest at Movieweb, it's a good read.
