If you stuck around through the Star Wars: The Force Awakens credits (perhaps waiting in vain for a post-credits scene), you may have noticed that both Bill Hader and Ben Schwartz were credited as “BB-8 Voice Consultants” for the film. Hader spoke about his involvement only briefly saying, “JJ f–-ing around with this sound effects app on his iPad that was attached to a talk box operated by me.” Now Schwartz has spoken about his contributions revealing that he was originally reciting written dialogue.

Even as video games go, the mobile app Angry Birds is pretty conceptually thin. There are birds. They are angry, ostensibly because green pigs have constructed elaborate castles all over their bird-world...

When the lights come up at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you’ll notice a couple of delightfully surprising names listed in the credits — if you stick around long enough to see them and aren’t distracted by the need to run to the bathroom to get “something” out of your eye. Bill Hader and former Parks and Recreation star Ben Schwartz lent their vocal talents to The Force Awakens to help create the film’s most adorable star. Yes, really.

‘Trainwreck’ Outtakes Reveal All Kinds of Improv Shenanigans

It’s no secret that Judd Apatow really finds his movies in post-production, where he can sift through dozens of variations of the same joke and find the one that sings. Trainwreck is the result of a screenplay and countless hours of riffing, where the script was thrown away after take two and the actors were simply allowed to try out different lines. We can safely assume that a lot of them didn’t work, but what about the countless one-liners and exchanges that were funny but not “final cut funny”? Those are the lines that get edited into hilarious outtake videos and released online.

In addition to supplying the voice for Fear, the neurotic and anxiety-driven emotion inside the brain of 11-year-old Riley, Hader has also been spending time inside the Pixar writer’s room, where the so-called Brain Trust convene to work out their upcoming movies. The former SNL star (who also has a cameo as the running slug in Monsters University) has been making recurring trips to the Emeryville campus to contribute to the story process, similar to his role as a Creative Consultant on South Park. We spoke to Hader about working with (and for) Pixar, his contributions to their movies and why, even though he was cut out of the film, he still thinks The Good Dinosaur is going to be awesome.

It’s been at least five years since the last great Pixar film (or more, depending on your feelings about Toy Story 3). In the interim, they produced a series of sequels — some quite entertaining, but few as transcendently beautiful as the original concepts that turned the studio into the most dependable brand in all of Hollywood. Their latest effort, Inside Out, isn’t just a return to form; it surpasses almost all of their previous classics. It is, from start to finish, one of the best films Pixar has ever made.

As it turns out, no matter what age you are, your emotions are a bit frazzled and unsure of what to do.
