Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other. ‘Monsters University’ unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends. Screaming with laughter and fun, ‘Monsters University’ is directed by Dan Scanlon and stars the likes of John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Dave Foley, Julia Sweeney, Joel Murray, Helen Mirren, Ben Kingsley, Peter Sohn, Nathan Fillion, John Krasinski, Bonnie Hunt, Sean P. Hayes, Charlie Day, Aubrey Plaza and Alfred Molina. ‘Monsters University’ arrives in cinemas on June 21th in the US and July 12th in the UK.
Can you tell us a little bit about your character in ‘Monsters University,’ Art? And how was it voicing him, did you do much improv?
Charlie Day: Sure. Art is a member of the fraternity Mike and Sulley join, Oozma Kappa… sort of against their will. His fraternity is the worst of the worst on the campus, the least likely to succeed. And Art is a spacey guy who may have been in college for 10 years, you never know, he may not even be enrolled there, but he likes to hang around. He definitely goes to the beat of his own drummer. I don’t think anyone knows what makes Art tick, but I think that’s his charm. It’s hard to pin down what makes him tick, I don’t even know what makes him tick – I just came in and said the words (laughs).
