Sarah Michelle Gellar - "Scooby Doo 2" Movie is kind of like volcanology

Wednesday 31 March 2004, by cally

’Scooby Doo 2’ has gone straight to the top of the US box office taking just over 17m at the weekend.

The second live action flick is closer to the original cartoon than the first with lots of monsters and definitely one for the kids.

Radio 1 Entertainment presenter Sara Morgan caught up with the cast over the weekend while they were recovering from the UK premiere on Friday.

The cast have done many interviews for the film but Matthew Lillard, who plays Shaggy in the film, has come up with a way of keeping them interesting:

Matthew: "I don’t know, it’s kind of like volcanology, you know you study a volcano and you just don’t know if it’s ever going to blow. That’s what this movie is, you don’t know if it’s going to hit like it did the first time."

Sara: "Is that part of your word game?"

Matthew: "I have no idea what you’re talking about... No, here’s the game, I’ll tell you and your listeners... We do these interviews for two days straight, so what we do to keep them interesting is they give me random words and I work them into an interview."

"Volcanology, it’s the study of volcanoes, which by the way, is a hard thing to get into a four minute interview about ’Scooby Doo’!"

Sarah Michelle Gellar (who plays Daphne) on the other hand, decided to use the time to tell us about her other projects. She’s just finished filming a remake of a Japanese film called ’Ju’on’ which has been re-named ’The Grudge’ - it’s unusual as the original director has also done the remake.

She’s a cult name having starred in ’Buffy’ and ’Scooby Doo’, but she’s got something else up her sleeve which she’s quite chuffed about:

"You know you do a lot of things and you think they’re pretty cool, but then all of a sudden you do something and everybody can’t believe it, and ’The Simpsons’ seems to be that one - you hit ultimate coolness when you’ve been on ’The Simpsons’."

"Everybody records on their own, you don’t record with the other people, it’s so odd. I think there are just experts out there who have been doing it for 12 years or whatever, but they were so sweet and afterwards they sent me an autographed script, autographed by the entire cast, so it was very exciting."

’Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed’ is out Friday.
