I sort of had an idea to do it, and I’d been prodding Matt. He didn’t accept any prods. I kept asking to meet him.”[/perfectpullquote]
Robert explains that the costume is pretty tough to get into and takes five people trying to shove him into it order for it to fit. Once on, he feels strong and tough. Things seem to be going well for the filming of movie as praise has been raised all around for Robert’s skill and performance in the role.
