Why Andy Serkis Continued Motion Capture Acting After The Lord Of The Rings

So had Peter Jackson not been keen on Andy Serkis playing King Kong‘s eponymous beast, Serkis would have moved along in his career like any other actor by taking more “normal” roles and keeping Gollum/Smeagol as his sole time performing a motion capture character. Let’s all give Jackson a round of applause then for him bringing Serkis on to King Kong (where he also played Lumpy the Cook), as since then, Serkis has established himself as the biggest motion capture actor in Hollywood. Sure Serkis may not be as recognizable because his most famous roles are the ones where you don’t see his face, but as he pointed while appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, he has more freedom than ever now with the acting jobs he takes. Thanks to this particular brand of post-production movie magic, the sky’s the limit!
