"So basically," Cranston jokes, "You're just like any other suck-up!"

Godzilla was Cranston's favorite monster when he was a kid and King Kong was too apologetic. He does his King Kong as a wimp impression.

"You really invest in these people and you still get Godzilla," he says of the human characters.

Edwards says it was important that the human characters be people who are close to Godzilla and not just random citizens.

Edwards was crossing the border and got stopped. They looked him up and realized that the film was really Godzilla. The border agents got excited and said, "Don't fuck it up, man!"
