'Alice in Wonderland's' Michael Sheen, Matt Lucas on white rabbits, fat boys
Michael Sheen and Matt Lucas revealed some of the behind-the-scenes secrets about "Alice in Wonderland" at Saturday (Feb. 20) junket for the Tim Burton film.
Apparently, Sheen -- who plays the White Rabbit -- spent six months living with rabbits to learn their ways and habits. (Dry British Humor Alert)
In all seriousness, he says of his voice-over role, "I would have given anything to put on the ears and jump around....Perhaps if there's a sequel."
Lucas had to wear the green Lycra suit ("very fetching,very slimming," he describes it) to portray both Tweedledum and Tweedledee. But while it was a lot of work, he was most fond of his private trailer and getting to watch TMZ every morning. Although he stopped watching the gossip show after he was featured on it.
But there's so much more. We recommend you watch the video and enjoy these two extremely amusing British actors talking about the joy of working with Tim Burton on this amazing film.
