Snoop Lion, Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds are interviewed at a press junket for their new movie 'Turbo' in which they play animated snails with dreams of becoming racers. They are asked about what attracted them to the role, the implications of being an 'underdog' and their favourite underdog characters.
'I've always wanted to be connected to animated movies and to have a role like this where I could be a cool snail', says Snoop. 'Smooth, cool, fly, underground, slide through the grass, hello!' On being an underdog, Ryan recognises that it's something close to home. 'I think everybody in the entertainment business go on into it, you're the ultimate underdog', he says. '99% of people that try to go into that kind of career pursuit fail and that's an unfortunate statistic but it's true.' Samuel mentions that he 'always cheered for Wile E. Coyote 'cause I wanted at least one of those Acme products he bought to work.'
