When a devastating event befalls the city of San Fransokyo and catapults Hiro into the midst of danger, he turns to Baymax and his brilliant fellow nerds: adrenaline junkie GoGo Tomago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. Determined to uncover the mystery, Hiro transforms his friends into a band of high-tech heroes called “Big Hero 6.”
I had the pleasure of sitting down with super hero’s Jamie Chung (Once Upon A Time), who plays Gogo Tomago and Damon Wayans Jr. (New Girl) who plays Wasabi. We learned some interesting things about Damon, when we asked him and Jamie what Disney character they pretended to be when they were little. Let’s just say…he was a prankster! Watch the interview to find out which members of the famous Wayans family, Damon would select to be on his super-hero team! But, make sure you watch until the end, to see Damon and Jamie’s spot on impression of Mickey Mouse!
What Disney Character did you pretend to be when you were small?
” I remember my brother pretending to be…you know that guy with no legs in Forrest Gump? (Lieutenant Dan) He pulled up his legs, put on my dad’s pants and pretended to have no legs. And he’d walk around talking like lieutenant Dan!And it was hilarious, I just remembered that.”
“I always re-enacted the Lion King scene, where he’s born. And I used to wear this onesie to sleep and it was pretty fury. And we had puppies, so I would carry our dog around, like that.”
If you could comprise a super-hero group made from the Wayans family, who would you choose and what powers would they have?
“Keenan, he’s been doing martial arts since he was young. He has like the best body out of our entire family. He has like an 8 pack, it’s so weird. He works out a lot, but he eats really well. Umm, my dad. Uh, who else? My aunt Kim, no, no, no, my aunt Elvira. She has really big boobs, I feel like she could use those to like fight crime. Somehow? Somehow? I don’t know? But, I think that my dad could have electricity, Keenan could have super strength and I would be like, the guy with the huge brain, that just has so much thought, I could just move walls.”
Big Hero 6 hits theaters on Friday, November 7th! You don’t want to miss it!
