Andy Serkis Knocked About With Monkeys!

Posted by Adam

Andy SerkisANDY Serkis noticed some rather odd monkey business going on while shooting the new Planet of the Apes prequel.

The British actor plays an orangutan in Rise of the Apes and spotted an unexpected kinship between many of the monkey actors.

“Because we wear these suits people treat us differently,” explains Andy.

“In the Planet of the Apes documentary they talked about how the orangutans hung out with the other orangutans, the chimps hung out with the chimps, and the gorillas hung out with the gorillas. And to a certain extent there was a little bit of that shooting this movie. We tended to knock around together.”Andy Serkis Knocked About With Monkeys!
