Watch Peter Jackson's 'Tipsy' Tintin Screen Test
When Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson presented some of the first footage from their epic mo-cap collaboration The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn to this summer's Comic-Con audience, they also shared the film's "first motion-capture test" -- a cute video in which Jackson nervously auditions for the role of Captain Haddock with a bottle of Jack Daniels in hand. Now, the audition video is available for everyone to see via a new Tintin featurette.
Of course the part of Captain Haddock ultimately went to Andy Serkis. But it's cute seeing the two filmmakers giddily discuss their excitement over the project and their genuine passion for the Hergé character. Now, if only we could get some behind-the-scenes video of cast member Daniel Craig in his humiliating leotard and helmet, we'd be happy. Until then, we'll just have to settle for Jamie Bell in the mo-cap garb.
