"Community" Actor Danny Pudi talks about playing Batman!

Posted by Bob Tilley Friday, 6 November 2009

The new critically acclaimed TV show "Community" which hit the US recently aired a Halloween special, which featured none other than the Dark Knight himself. CBR spoke with actor Danny Pudi, who dressed as Batman for the entire episode and never left character, here's what he had to say regarding this hilarious parody...

CBR: What do you love about Batman, and what makes him your favorite superhero?

Danny Pudi: I remember watching the old Adam West "Batman" as a kid, and now watching this Batman, and there's no comparison. They're so different - this Batman is definitely darker, and I love that about him.

I just like a superhero that doesn't have superpowers, someone who has to rely on his training, intellect and his utility belt. Oh, and in my case, lip balm. I added that to my Batman. I figure, I'm not Christian Bale, my legs are tiny and I can do the voice, but ultimately, Batman is still human. And just like anyone of us, his lips might get chapped, so I wanted to make sure that was expressed.


CBR: It's cold, and I imagine rainy, in Gotham. That type of weather begs for lip balm.

Danny Pudi: Totally. And I live in Los Angeles where it's super sunny, so there better be SPF in that lip balm too.

CBR: You were stone cold straight during the entire episode. Did it take a lot of takes to maintain a straight face, or were you and the other actors able to keep it together?

Danny Pudi: There were a lot of takes, but we're pretty good. We're pretty efficient. But when you're talking about baby carrots, and Chex Mix, and all that other stuff in that voice, it's funny the first few times you hear it because it's so unexpected. So there were definitely a few takes where we had to do it over just to make sure we got it good. And I think we did.

And it was such a fun week, too, because everybody was dressed in a character costume and they were extensions of themselves. And for me to be able to play Batman was definitely a lifelong dream. I'm just thankful the writers gave me that opportunity, and after studying [Bale's] voice for a couple of weeks, I was able to kind of find [the voice].
