T. J. Miller Talks About Playing i-R-0k In Ready Player One
Miller got his start in film in Cloverfield as Hud, the mostly unseen cameraman who documents the chaos unfolding around him and his friends. Since then, he has gone on to appear in any number of noteworthy movies, including Get Him to the Greek, Transformers: Age of Extinction, and Deadpool. Additionally, he has lent his voice to such projects as Big Hero 6 and the How to Train Your Dragon series.
Although his character doesn’t actually appear in the Ernest Cline book that the film is based on, Miller explains that he has found not only motivation for his character but inspiration as well. And what an inspiration it is: none other than Boba Fett, the fan favorite bounty hunter from Star Wars whom Miller says i-R0k is “obsessed” with.
Comingsoon.net, the source of this story, quotes Miller as follows:
“I actually mimicked Boba Fett’s voice. And in the original Star Wars he only ever speaks four or five times in the movies, so I could only learn from ‘What about me? He’s no good to me dead.’ And then ‘As you wish.’ And I used the British actor’s voice instead of the f***ing Australian’s from the prequels – Lucas, you son of a bitch! – and so, I think it’s actually a really fun character.”
