EW: You've also just finished work on Spike Jonze's half-puppet,half-computer-animated adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are.
FW: Yeah. It's a pretty good cast. The first time we [Benicio Del Toro, Michelle Williams, and the other Wild Things voice actors] got together as a group, we went up in the hills into
this big Styrofoam world with all these big Styrofoam trees that we're hitting each other with. We were diving on top of each other and rolling around on the ground and grunting and playing and ducking. It was pretty unusual.
The movie is about people and their fears and their
hopes, so that's what we were trying to emphasize while we were having a lot of fun.
Forest Whitaker on the role that might get him an Emmy: He chats with Michelle Kung about ''The Shield,'' plus playing around on the set of ''Where the Wild Things Are''
