I loved this stop-motion animated adventure! From the companies who gave us the equally fantastic “Coraline” comes this tale of a boy named Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee) who is the town outcast who ends up saving Blithe Hollow. Watch this film! It’s funny, thrilling, and sweet all at the same time!

Casey Affleck Talks About "ParaNorman!" 


Casey Affleck voices the character of Mitch in “ParaNorman.” He’s the muscle-bound, older brother of Neil (the funny Tucker Albrizzi), Norman’s (Kodi Smit-McPhee) friend. His character has a twist in the end that invites you to never judge a book by its muscular body.

In this interview, we talked about:

*** His interest in working on “ParaNorman”
*** Doing voicework
*** His character Mitch
*** Does he believe in paranormal activity?

Have fun!

ParaNorman Speaks! Interview with Kodi Smit-McPhee 


I strongly believe that Kodi Smit-McPhee is a talented actor. He wowed us in “The Road” with Viggo Mortensen, and he was incredible in “Let Me In” the remake of “Let the Right One In.” Smit-McPhee has a knack for choosing thought-provoking pieces that challenge him as an actor. ("ParaNorman" movie review)

In the new movie “ParaNorman,” the actor voices the role of the 11-year-old Norman, the boy who sees dead people. In this interview, we talked about:

*** His attraction to voicing the character of the boy who sees dead people
*** How he chooses his roles
*** Why “ParaNorman” is layered
*** How his voice changed in the middle of making the movie
*** Does he believe in paranormal activity?
*** What does he want kids to take away from the movie?

Have fun!

Anna Kendrick Interview for “ParaNorman” 


I love Miss Anna Kendrick! Not only is she a talented actress who can steal scenes anytime, she is also a sweet person. I interviewed her for “Up in the Air” a while back, and when she saw me for the “ParaNorman” junket, she immediately gave me a hug. Awwww. ("ParaNorman" movie review)

In the movie, Kendrick voices the character of Courtney, Norman’s older, superficial sister. In this interview, we talked about:

*** Her interest in making “ParaNorman”
*** The film’s 80s vibe – John Hughes meets John Carpenter
*** Voicing the character of Courtney
*** Courtney’s nice lips HA!
*** Does she believe in the paranormal?

Have fun!
