TODAY is the day! Inside Out is in stores EVERYWHERE to help celebrate I’m going to share a bit from my interviews of Kyle MacLachlan who plays the voice of “Dad” and Kaitlyn Dias who was the voice of “Riley.” I think everyone has seen the film by now and if you haven’t, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? It’s a film that both my children and I have watched over and over. One of those rare movies that doesn’t get old and in fact evokes a new feeling or emotion with each time you watch it. It truly is one of PIXAR’s best and I don’t say that lightly. NOW, if you are getting the Blu-ray or DVD version you can get a fun short called “Riley’s First Date” and it just kicks up the level of funny and is a great short on it’s own. Now, let’s get to the fun stuff.
Q: So, there’s been some online polls about Disney dads, and apparently your character is Number One Hottest Disney Dad. Do you have a statement about this?
Kyle M.: Hottest Disney [CHUCKLES] — see when you first started talking I heard you say dizzy dads. [CHUCKLES] Oh, that makes complete sense to me. Well, that’s pretty good. I’ll reign for, a couple more weeks and then someone, of course, will knock me off from first. It’s all about the mustache, I think. I mean when it comes down to it. I wish I could grow one.
Q: Were you guys able to record together and like play off of each other, or did you record separately?
Kaitlyn D.: No, unfortunately. We were in different sessions
Kyle M.: I worked with Diane Lane one time right at the first — our first recording session together and in the big room at Disney. That was it. The rest of the time it was all just kind of to either an image or a picture or sometimes looking at Pete or Jonas on the video monitor [CHUCKLES], because they were up in Emeryville. We were down in Los Angeles. So, and it was really scattered that way.
Another fun fact was that Kaitlyn was initially just the scratch voice. Which is who they have while they are working on the film. She chatted with us bloggers about that as well:
Kaitlyn D.: Well, when they first brought me on, I didn’t get to see the full script. Even after I’d signed a nondisclosure agreement, ’cause they still were working on the full script, because they brought me on as the scratch voice. It really blew my mind. [CHUCKLES] I was 11 at the time and I’m just like I’m gonna be a part of a Disney film. At first I was like no one’s gonna see me, but still it’s gonna be cool. [CHUCKLES] Ten when I got the news that I was gonna be on the full feature film, I was like whoaaaa. [LAUGHS]
I’ve interviewed voice actors before, but Kaitlyn was such a doll and her voice really through me for a loop. It wasn’t that she just voiced Riley. She WAS Riley. Her inflections, he attitude. She’s just adorable. As for Kyle, well you guys know I feel about him and I think he will be labeled as one of Disney’s Hottest Dads for some time. How about you?
Don’t forget the film that has us all talking about our emotions is in stores TODAY!! Don’t want to go to the store? Tha’s ok too. Just hop on over to Amazon and
