Masi Oka has clearly had plenty of fun embodying a Bond villain in the recent Blue Sky Studios animated film, Spies In Disguise. So much fun that he’s not done with the character of Kimura quite yet. During the press conference, the Heroes star petitioned for a sequel in order to achieve a very specific goal.
While Spies In Disguise couldn’t topple Star Wars at the box office – and I’m sure no one expected it to – the film has been getting some great buzz from audiences and critics alike. Masi Oka in particular was a standout for his improvisational ability when facing off against the likes of Will Smith and Tom Holland. And the actor would like a Funko as a reward.
Masi Oka Petitions The Masses
When a reporter presented a Pop doll, Masi Oka had this to say:
“That’s not our Funko, though… We need to make this a huge success, so the sequel will have a Funko.”
And why not? Merchandising is a great way to keep a film’s legacy going, and perhaps Spies In Disguise will make enough in its run to justify both a sequel and a fabulous line of toys.
