GenreTainment 112 – Actor and Motion Capture Artist Greg LaSalle

The face of Colossus in Fox's Deadpool

This is episode 112 and we are chatting with actor and motion capture artist Greg LaSalle.

You might have seen him in recent movie Deadpool where he is the face of Colossus. We learn all sorts of cool things about motion capture technology from this veteran of facial motion capture performance whose work has appeared in movies like Marvel’s The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Gravity, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

And we take a behind-the-scenes look at how the character of Colossus was created for Fox’s Deadpool and how Greg was chosen to become Colossus.
