Yet the guy that's lost his causes purpose and -- -- during the civil war era. And he left to protect them and he's paid that ultimate price in losing them for that and he cares that deal -- And through these increased humidity -- -- work marks. Basically the people he means the creatures he means. He when others can't get. -- -- -- And -- here at the idea that. It and that's our hearts -- hands all of these. I mean you -- -- to foe playing the leader of the nomadic tribe. He's four arms and on all. Your comments featured weekly. That leadership them. Sam Morton -- his daughter. In you can caller Sam. -- them. Really yes I have you really that's an honor that that's how. Again.

And to walk out of that room being rated very. This. He's a great great feeling. I'd love to do it again. -- Well what's amazing about the movie -- that hate him just like. -- and it's of the world news and we have to remember that that book was -- like contradict. Literally so everybody that might see this moving -- -- he reminds me that Guitar Hero start here.
