Actor Tim Roth has played a lot of bad guys in his illustrious career, but none of them might be more anticipated than his turn as Emil Blonsky aka “The Abomination” in the upcoming Marvel Studios relaunch The Incredible Hulk, and while he chose to keep any information about the part close to his vest while doing interviews for Francis Ford Coppola’s Youth Without Youth, we were able to learn that he just wrapped shooting in Brazil and he was very exhausted from the experience.
“I just literally wrapped last week, and it was such fun,” he said, “I’m bloody tired by the way. From being in the action stuff, I don’t know how the hell they do it, people like Bruce Willis. They must have great stunt doubles. I had three of them! My god, and I was so happy when they were working!”
He was a bit more cagey when asked how involved he has been with the CG in terms of creating Blonsky’s “Abominable” counterpart and whether he’s been doing motion capture type stuff for it. “You’ll find out. (We’re doing) all kinds.”
We also asked whether he had to take on a Russian accent to play Blonsky. “No,” Roth responded. “Do you know why? They wouldn’t pay for a dialect coach,” he said with a laugh. “So now it’s London.”
He also said that he did the movie for his kids, who he think will dig it.
The Incredible Hulk opens next summer on June 13, but you can see Roth in Coppola’s Youth Without Youth, which opens in New York and L.A. on December 14.
