Reid Scott: Nothing Like Feeding Off The Energy Of Your Cast

Posted: Updated:

Reid Scott, from "My Boys" and "Veep" voices the character of Turbo on the new animated series, "Turbo FAST," which premieres on Netflix on Christmas Eve.

The movie is based on the DreamWorks feature film, "Turbo," and Reid takes over the title role from Ryan Reynolds, who gave voice to Turbo on the big screen.

"At first it was a little intimidating," Reid says.  "I guess, because I happened to see the feature in a private screening over at DreamWorks.  And I thought it was great.  And I thought that Ryan did such a fantastic job and that he had a really great voice for animation, too. But the good thing was that we weren't really looking for a voice match. It was more sort of a character match or an attitude match. So that challenge was not quite as daunting."

"And, it's been fun," Reid told the Canadian website, tribute.ca. " At this point, the little subtleties and nuances in my voice and in my style, and in my approach to the character, have slowly sort of taken over. As was with the rest of the cast; so now…I would say that we really own it.  But it's still very faithful to the feature."

Reid Scott joins Steve Edwards and Lauren Sivan on Good Day L.A.
