And did he do it to piss off his parents? If someone in Fall Out Boy tried to say that to this guy, he'd probably get his lights knocked out. But when it comes from the little guy with the razor-sharp wit, vivid imagination, and goofy grin, we just adore him all the more.
In Pixar's Ratatouille, Oswalt provides the voice for Remy, an endearing animated rat who achieves the impossible by becoming a chef at one of Paris's cordon bleu establishments. There's no irony in the way the epicurean who recommends dining at the Mission's Andalu, not Puerto Alegre, has begun peppering his material with jokes about the eccentricities of top chefs at five-star restaurants. His movie rocked the box office, and he's probably making bigger bucks than the staffs at arbiter-of-cool magazines Vice and Paper combined.
So I kind of didn't get it when he told me he would trade cute and cuddly for badass in a second. "Yeah, I don't think badass loses its breath when it's trying to tie its shoes," he said. Aw, well, excuse me while I try to hold back the tears ... of laughter.
