Andy Serkis Improvises a Conversation Between Gollum and Caesar the Ape on Conan
‘Star Wars: Episode 7‘ and ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes‘ star Andy Serkis is a serious actor with some serious talents who takes things, well, not so seriously. Although other actors might balk at being asked to trot out instant imitations of their most famous roles — for instance, Will Smith might be asked to yell, “Welcome to Earf!” or Harrison Ford could find himself having to crack a whip for someone else’s amusement — Serkis has no problem queuing up his best work for instant consumption.
On last night’s ‘Conan,’ host Conan O’Brien and Serkis talked quite a bit about some of his best roles, which Serkis then gleefully imitated for the entire crowd. Ever wonder what it would sound like if Gollum and Caesar the ape had a chat? Wonder no more.
