Last year, comedic powerhouse Kristen Wiig surprised everyone with her nasty turn as The Cheetah in Wonder Woman 1984Now the actress is playing a bad guy again Barb and Star Go to Vista Del MarThe director of the film, Josh Greenbaum, recently revealed that Wiig disappeared into the role so completely that many viewers could no longer recognize her at all.
“One of the biggest compliments I think [Kristen Wiig] is that when we did early test screenings, it was so many people who said, ‘Who’s that bad guy? She’s that good. I cannot say who the actress is. And that’s, I think, such a compliment to her role. My other fun, short story on that is that there was even a guy working on the movie, who did some coloring early in the process. He worked on the film for three days. “
“Every day I came to see him and he said, ‘Don’t tell me. I’m not out yet. I have to go to IMDB. But I want to know who it is.” He worked on it for three days and came don’t find out it was Kristen. We’ll do a few tricks. We’ll add a small tooth opening … and a little prosthesis on the nose, and she’s obviously wearing some interesting contact lenses. But the rest is just her performance and how she goes completely from one character to another. “
The film tells the story of best friends Barb, played by Annie Mumolo, and Star, played by Kristen Wiig, who live in Nebraska and decide to vacation to Vista Del Mar, Florida. Sadly, the holiday fun is cut short by the machinations of Sharon Gordon Fisherman, also played by Wiig. Fisherman plans to kill everyone in town unless Barb and Star can put their vacation plans aside in time to stop her. In an earlier interview, Mumolo, who co-wrote the script for Barb & Star Go To Vista Del Mar together with Wiig they explained how their personal history enabled them to create the project from an intimate perspective.
“Kristen and I have always written together, since the Groundlings, and since we were in our early twenties, we’ve always been drawn to these middle-aged female characters. Always. These ladies! Girls! They probably come from many different places in our minds,” but some are like your mother, some are like your aunt and other family members, but more and more we realize how much we are. [Laughs] We are these people when we are in our private conversations. It was something we always loved to do. We loved to live in these people and give them a voice. We find so much fun and joy in these women. “
