Transcript for Dane Cook Flies Into Theaters With 'Planes'
This is a loud and crazy crowd. Comedian dane cook, they're excited about you. Is flying into theaters and foreign territory for him. Family entertainment. Is that what I'm supposed to be doing with my eyes? Yes. He stars in "planes." He's dusty, a single crop plane with high hopes of racing with the big guys. Take a look. I've flown thousands of miles. And I've never been anywhere. Not like you. You were built to fight. And look what you did. You're a hero. I'm just trying to prove that maybe, just maybe, I can do more than what I was built for. I can't wait to see it with my daughters. You play the little crop duster that could. And you say you identify with your character, dusty. How so? Dusty, when we see him at the beginning of the film, he's introverted. You played introverted? I grew up with a fear of crowds. Why become a standup comedian? I loved making my family laugh. I would be at home and doing skits. The minute I walked to school, i had a tree every day to school, called the throwup tree. If I could make it past the throwup tree, I could get to school. Speaking of your comedic traces now. It is a bit of a diversion to go into a family, animated film. How do you think your fans are going to see a softer, kinder dane? I think -- the comics I grew up loving, george carlin, robin williams, they went to do great animated stuff. I've grown up with fans. This is my 23rd year of doing standup comedy. And my fans have families of their own. How can I entertain them and entertain their kids? You're with a long list of celebrities in this film, including julia louis-dreyfus. Sinbad. You never got to interact with them, only voices. It's strange because you're hearing their material through the headsets. They give such incredible performances, you almost feel like you're in the room with them. And you know what I love, the "top gun" reference. The film managed to remake goose and iceman. Anthony edwards and val kilmer. How fun was that? I never thought I would be participating in a film -- you were tom cruise. With the guys from the "top gun" guys. What's your next project, dane? "Finding nemo"? I'm going to do some ribbon dancing. I'm taking some classes. I'm going to be touring. I'm heading back on tour. My tenth tour in the last several years. It's great to be back on stage with the fans. That will be in september. On the stage. On the big screen, we love it. Thank you so much for stopping by. "Planes" opens next friday, AUGUST 9th.
