Actor Glen Powell had to summon up all of his energy for his role in Netflix sci-fi animation series 'Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous' (19 Sept.)
- You are the first kids in the entire world--
- --to ever experience the awesomeness that is Camp Cretaceous.
GLEN POWELL: "Jurassic World, Camp Cretaceous" is about a bunch of teenagers who get the opportunity to go Jurassic World and study dinosaurs and be a part of this magical moment of opening this park. Of course, as a "Jurassic Park" story goes, it goes wrong. You know, fences go down. Dinosaurs escape.
And I'm sort of-- I play Dave, with cohort, or Jameela Jamil, who plays Roxie. We're trying to herd these kids and hopefully keep them out of dinosaur mouths or claws, or--
- So much screaming.
- What, huh?
- For the blog. Keep telling your little story.
GLEN POWELL: You sort of just have to kind of goofy and fun. And the energy-- I mean, this is why Robin Williams, you know, playing the genie was so magical, is like, his energy, the way he could kind of like cater and tailor his voice to certain characters and make it so specific. It's really a skill.
When you see people that have been really successful in the genre, it's like, it's a very emotionally draining thing. Every time I'd leave, I was so excited about what I just did. But I was like, wow, I'm sort of light headed. Like, that was a lot of-- 40 minutes of voiceover.
I'm pretty tired. I'm a pretty energetic guy. It's its own art form for sure.
- This is what camp's about. Who's with me?
