- "One fun casting challenge was the Vortigaunt. We were getting some really bad audition tapes for this part, and gave the casting agents some additional direction: Look, we want somebody speaking human language, but not human. It's like Vincent D'Onforio doing Edgar in Men in Black. Or, another really good example is Lou Gossett, Jr. in Enemy Mine. That kind of approach is what we're looking for. Then we got the call that Lou Gossett, Jr. was interested in the part."
