That's me on the right...I mean, on the left.
Robbie was asked by the cool and talented owner of Make-up and Monsters, Brian Penikas, to be "Dr. Zaius" for an ApeMania weekend. The AMC channel was showing all of the Planet of The Apes films, and they wanted to have funny bumpers between films where the apes would answer interview questions, act funny, and basically look bitchen'.
Robbie was great as the Good Doctor. He acted all old and crotchety, and would bang Zaius' cane on the floor, saying things like: "naturally, humans cannot act in films the way apes can," or "Man has no understanding of special effects." Then he would blink and grind his teeth together, which brought the incredible makeups to life. What a day.
As strange as it was to see Robbie's face completely transformed, it was also totally awesome.
Robbie rules. So does Brian Penikas, and the entire Planet of the Apes franchise...well, except for
Battle for the Planet of the Apes. That was total sh**t.
