Exclusive Interview with the Voices of The Deavors Siblings in Disney/Pixar Incredibles 2: Evelyn Deavor (Catherine Keener) & Winston Deavor (Bob Odenkirk) #Incredibles2Event Thursday 21 June, 2018

I was hosted and sponsored with an all-expense paid trip to Los Angeles to cover #Incredibles2Event #PixarFest #BigCityGreensEvent. Thank you Disney for the opportunity! 

Im still rolling out cool interviews from the voices behind the Incredibles 2 movie. We got an opportunity to interview some new characters and a new set of siblings which are The Deavors. They had a prominent role in the Incredibles 2…check out the clip below to get to know them a little better before the interview.

MEET THE DEAVORS

On how they both felt to get the call from Brad Bird about being apart of the Incredibles 2 animation.

Catherine: Yeah. I was so excited. I didn’t know anything, but I had heard that he maybe wanted for me to do this part in it. And I thought okay. 

Bob: I keep getting asked ‘You are in a Pixar movie. Can you believe it?’ I answer ‘No, but I’m in a Brad Bird movie.’ That’s what’s blowing my mind.

Any challenges Catherine had while doing the voiceovers for her character?

Catherine :  It was like one run on tape for hours and I would start and I’d be, oh, wait, wait, and he’s like that was good. What are you doing? Sometimes you feel honestly, okay, I was in the pocket there. I’m gonna walk away. But, you know, often you don’t. And mostly you don’t really know the truth anyway. You have to trust Brad, because he’s putting that movie together, obviously, up at Pixar. So, you’re not really seeing that. And he knows the tone of it all and the other characters, and it’s changing over time. So, you could feel it changing in the script, the tone, a little bit, but you don’t know really know where or how. And you never have the whole script. You’re guessing at what might work. So, you give him what he wants, get that first and then maybe say what if I tried this and that.

What was it like to work for Brad Bird as a director?

Bob: Well, he’s not different from all of the directors. He’s a lot like the best directors. My experience — I mean you could speak — ’cause you’ve worked with amazing directors and Spielberg and Alexander Payne and Vince Gilligan. These guys know what they want, and they dial it in just so — and that could sound like oppressive to an actor. It’s not though. 

Somehow it’s like a challenge that you wanna meet, and it’s like a neat thing to do it. And you feel accomplished when you do it. But also they’re all willing to hear, especially in the early stages of a scene, what do you wanna try. Try something or even maybe after they got exactly what they want, you can say, yeah, but I don’t know. I had a different thought about how to say that line. And they’ll go let me hear it. And then they go down that road together, but they all are dialing it in just so.

And it’s great. You feel like you’re in really good hands. And somehow it doesn’t steal your own –

Catherine: Creative.

Bob: inspiration and creative input, yeah.

Bob on seeing female empowerment in the film for his girls.

Bob: I said it the other day and I haven’t fully analyzed it, but you guys are all great brains. Everybody talks about how Holly Hunter and the Elastigirl’s story and being a female superhero is so great for women, and it is. And I’m glad my daughter saw that. And I’m especially glad she saw the scene where the dad’s knocking on the daughter’s door – Violet? Leave me alone. And then she got to experience what it’s like on the other side of her door.

I really loved sitting next to her for that scene, an I felt like she sees how much I wanna help her, but I can’t. And how about that scene — and I have to see it again, ’cause I’ve only seen it once myself, where Evelyn and Elastigirl are kinda facing off.

Bob Talks Real Life Scenes Portrayed In The Film

Bob:  I said it the other day and I haven’t fully analyzed it, but you guys are all great brains. And everybody talks about how Holly Hunter and the Elastigirl’s story and being a female superhero is so great for women, and it is. And I’m glad my daughter saw that. And I’m especially glad she saw the scene where the dad’s knocking on the daughter’s door. [KNOCKING] Violet? Leave me alone. And then she got to experience what it’s like on the other side of her door. I really loved sitting next to her for that scene, I felt like she sees like how much I wanna help her, but I can’t.

How did they both feel about their animated character in the film?

Bob: People have said my character looks a lot like me and there’re ways I think, yeah, that it is. And then there are ways I’m like, wow, I’m not remotely like that. Obviously, I don’t dress as well as the character. That’s for sure. My family’s proud of it, and they’re like, yeah, Dad, it’s a great character.

People think you’re like your character, and I’m so not like my characters it’s crazy. One journalist said, if you saw Saul in a room, would you wanna hang out with him. I’m like, no, I wouldn’t go near that guy.

Catherine: I just wanted to say that Brad told me last night my character was originally a man! Which clearly then you thought what woman could play this man?

If they both had superpowers in real life what would it be?

Bob: I would like to be able to eat whatever I want and not gain weight. It’s an obsession. It’s a part of my life too much, and that’s what I wish I could have. But I like hers. It’s a better idea, and it’s really — it would be wonderful.

Catherine: Teleportation.

Bob: Like, she’ll still go to the airport, wait in line, go through to get some– but then going home is always like that.

Catherine: And I’m home. I’m in my pajamas. My bed’s made. Clothes are off the floor. And I’m ready to go to bed, you know.

It was fun to inteview the new siblings of The Incredibles 2. Can’t give away too much of their actual roles but lets just say it will be an incredible surprise!

Telecommunications guru Winston Deavor enlists Elastigirl to fight crime and make the public fall in love with superheroes once again. That leaves Mr. Incredible with one of his greatest challenges ever — staying home and taking care of three rambunctious children. As Violet, Dash and Jack-Jack offer him a new set of headaches, a cybercriminal named Screenslaver launches his dastardly plan — hypnotizing the world through computer screens.
