Russell Curry Talks The Humor Of Dino Fury
The Illuminerdi: Russell, I have to ask you, is there anything you personally wanted to add to Zayto? Whether it be characteristics or storywise that wasn’t in the original scripts?
Russell Curry: There were a lot of things that we came up with as time went on. I think the humor aspect, like anything that’s… well, not anything that’s funny. But a lot of the things I’m most proud of that I got to craft together with our writers, and our directors, and Simon as the time went on, were Zayto’s really funny moments in my opinion.
So for instance, episode two… I’ll just give you two quick ones. Episode two of season one, when we’re talking to Warden Garcia. And he shows the, “Was this their vehicle?” And he does the drawing. It was mine and Charlie’s idea for Zayto to be like, “No.” That wasn’t in the script. So very, very proud of that. And also episode two of season two, when we were doing the table read. We had the whole back and forth about the wheely joke…
Chance Perez: The, yeah.
Russell Curry: Yeah, It’ll be wheely cool.
Chance Perez: Right.
Russell Curry: And in the table read, I just was moved to say, “Be wheely careful.” Which wasn’t written in the script. And they were gracious enough to say that, “Yeah, we can record that Russell, just keep goofing off. Why not? We’ll reward you for it.”
Chance Perez: With table reads, we would always throw stuff like that in there. And if it got a laugh, they would usually write it in. And it was so cool working with them in that way.
The Illuminerdi: I love that.
Russell Curry: So collaborative. Yeah, it’s amazing.
