Last year, the powerful comedian Kristen Wiig surprised everyone with her villainous role as The Cheetah in Wonder Woman 1984. Now, the actress returns to play a villain in Barb and Star go to Vista Del Mar. The film’s director, Josh Greenbaum, recently revealed that Wiig disappeared so completely in the role that many viewers were completely unable to recognize her.
“I think one of the greatest compliments [Kristen Wiig] is that when we did the first screening tests, there were so many people who said: ‘Who is that villain? She is so good. I can’t point to who the actress is. ” And that, I think, is a great compliment to her role. My other funny short story on that is that we had a guy working on the movie, doing some color work early in the process. He worked on the movie for three days. “
“Every day, I’d check it out and say, ‘Don’t tell me. I haven’t figured it out yet. I have to go to IMDB. But I want to find out who it is.’ She worked on it for three days and didn’t realize it was Kristen. We do a couple of tricks. We added a little gap in her teeth … and a little prosthetic nose, and obviously she’s actually wearing some cool ones. contact lenses. But the rest is just his acting and how he completely goes from one character to another. “
The film tells the story of best friends Barb, played by Annie Mumolo, and Star, played by Kristen Wiig, who lives in Nebraska and decides to go on vacation to Vista Del Mar, Florida. Unfortunately, the happiness of the holidays is interrupted by the machinations of Sharon Gordon Fisherman, also played by Wiig. Fisherman plans to kill everyone in town, unless Barb and Star can put their vacation plans aside in time to stop her. In an earlier interview, Mumolo, who co-wrote the script for Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar together with Wiig, he explained how his personal story allowed them to create the project from an intimate perspective.
“Kristen and I have always been writing together, since the Groundlings, and since we were in our twenties, we’ve always been drawn to these middle-aged female characters. Always. These ladies! Girls! They probably come from many different places in our lives. heads, but some are like your mom, some are like your aunt and other relatives of the family. But more and more we realize how much we are. [Laughs] We are these people when we are in our private conversations. It was something we always liked to do. We liked to inhabit these people and give them a voice. We have so much fun and delight in these women. “
