Transcript for Benjamin Bratt says his new film 'celebrates this idea that we all come from somewhere'
for your family just in time for the holidays. "Coco" getting so much buzz and Amy sat down with one of the anymore's star, actor Benjamin Bratt. What I think makes it the perfect Thanksgiving movie, the perfect holiday fare is that it celebrates family and it celebrates this idea that we all come from somewhere. The fact that it's set against the backdrop of the Mexican community which is vibrant and artistic and faithful is something that I'm really proud of. I think that people are going to really respond to. The film from disthink and Pixar follow the young boy's journey through his family's past with help from Ernesto de la Cruz. You're working with the people who brought us "Toy story". Right. What was that like? It's a fascinating experience and it's uniquely challenging in that as an actor, you're denied two of the main things that you rely upon to do a performance which is your body and your facial expression. That's eliminated. You are all anyone has been talking about. It's you alone in a booth with a set of earphones and a microphone. Ooh. Fireworks have begun. Reporter: You're attempting to create a full body experience out of thin air so in this particular job I was required to sing but I'm not a singer. Room a decent actor but, you know, I'm the guy who in the car when I'm listening to the radio my son and daughter say, please, dad, don't sing. And they, you know, over the process of me making this film they've been mocking me left and right because they don't know what it is I've dong. How old are they. My daughter is 15 next month. My daughter is 15 next month. I totally get the mocking thing. Even though I've been telling them, you wait, you see. I can sing. They don't believe it. Soon Thanksgiving weekend when I take them to see the film for the first time. ??? Remember ??? That'she one thing I'll be able -- Drop the Mike. I'm a pro now. Paid professional singer, bang. Get over it. Cannot wait to see it. I don't know. Whoever it was, thumb's up. "Coco" hits theaters tomorrow.
