Taika Waititi may be doing double duty in November's Thor: Ragnarok, but he doesn't seem very phased by the challenge.
In a recent interview with the LA Times, Waititi discussed his dual roles in Ragnarok - as director and as the actor for Planet Hulk character Korg. Bringing the rock-shaped warrior character to life was initially supposed to be a small task, but Waititi decided to expand the role - something he ended up enjoying as an actor.
"You've got to understand that Taika Waititi the actor is an incredible person to work with." Waititi explained. "When Taika Waititi the director comes across someone like that, it just seems appropriate to give that actor a bit more time to show what they can do. I did that, and my theory was correct. I was, he was that good. As an actor, I highly valued Taika Waititi the director, who was very generous to me in giving me a few more takes than everyone else, and really let me show what I can do."
Audiences first saw Waititi's performance as Korg in Ragnarok's San Diego Comic-Con presentation, where it was revealed that the character has a surprisingly soft-spoken voice. Considering how creative Waititi's explanation of the role is, it's safe to assume that Korg's appearance in Ragnarok will be just as unique.
