Starring in “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” was a whole new experience for Thomas Middleditch.
The actor talks about filming the big-budget summer blockbuster in the new episode of “The IMDb Show”.
“There’s this one scene where we’re running around in the arctic trying to rescue everybody and we’re on this big sound stage and they’ve got sound and smoke and all that kind of stuff,” he says. “that felt very much like ‘oh, I’m in a big movie.'”
Middleditch also shares the first moment he realized just how big a movie “Godzilla” would be.
“They had string cheese,” he says. “Craft services – and that’s always a luxury. It never ended. I could have like two, three a day. They would always replenish them.”
Also on the show, Middleditch talks about meeting Leonardo DiCaprio on the set of “The Wolf of Wall Street”.
“He’s tall, he’s charming, I shook his hand, he looked into my eyes, and I said to myself, ‘I get it – I get why it happened to him,'” the actor says. “He’s a godsend, he’s an angel, and his feet don’t touch – ever. I melted. I wanted him to hold me, maybe rock me, give me a little kiss on the cheek – on the lips, his choice.”
