His voice has featured in Pixar's 'Ratatouille, 'Despicable Me', he voices the lead character of BoJack in the Netflix series 'BoJack Horseman and he's the voice of Batman in 'The LEGO Movie' and 'The LEGO Batman Movie'.

When it comes to his face... you may recognise that too! He plays Gob in the Netflix series 'Arrested Development' and he's been in 'Blades of Glory' and 'Hot Rod'.

For his latest film role though he's back behind the booth as a producer and voice in the film 'Teen Titans GO! To The Cinema' based on the DC Comics superhero team Teen Titans.

Interview with Amandla Stenberg

Imagine a world were 98% of young people have been wiped out.

It’s difficult to imagine; but The Darkest Minds (the new film from the producers of Stranger Things and Arrival) is set in that world. Those who have survived the virus have done so by developing superhuman powers… only, the Government has declared them a threat and have placed all young people in internment camps.

Well, not all of them. Obviously, there are those who escape looking for a better life. But, even so, everything might not be how it seems.

Looking between the lines, The Darkest Minds is one big metaphor. In the real world, young people are ignored and underestimated. Those who defy the odds can often be demonised for success… and those who don’t fit the mould are often on the run to find acceptance.

The film centres around Ruby Daly (played by Amandla Stenberg) – her journey starts when she discovers her powers whilst, accidentally, erasing herself from her parents’ memories. We interviewed her about the film and her activism.

WR: How did you get involved in ‘The Darkest Minds’?

AS: The role was actually offered to me. I think there was interest in me partly because I have spoken out on issues like cultural appropriation and Black Lives Matter. Since the character is a leader, or at least reaches the point of being a leader during the course of the movie, I think they felt I had some of Ruby’s qualities.

WR: On which note, how much did you feel like you could relate to Ruby?

AS: Ruby is dealing with a lot of issues. She has…

Alec Feldman Reviews Mamma Mia 2

Alec Feldman doesn’t normally have a film reviews feature on his show. But after being semi-dragged to see Mamma Mia 2 in the cinema, he felt a sudden urge to start one.

Mamma Mia 2 is the follow-up to the 2008 smash hit film adaption to 'Mamma Mia' - based on the music of ABBA. Whilst the 2008 movie was based on the 1999 musical of the same name, the sequel is a brand new story and stars Lily James, Amanda Seyfried, Julie Walters, Pierce Brosnan, Dominic Cooper, Colin Firth, Cher, and Meryl Streep.

Now, Alec Feldman is not a fan of musicals at the best of times. So, let’s just say he had some... strong feelings about this one. Hear his full review below.
