“Mars Needs Moms” Seth Green: “I’m a 37-year-old man playing a 9-year-old boy”

Disney’s “Mars Needs Moms” has given Seth Green top billing but moviegoers will not see or hear Green in the film, because “Mars” creators decided Green’s voice-overs were to adult sounding for Milo, the 9 year-old Green plays in the film.

“The movie was made in the same way that ‘Avatar‘ and ‘A Christmas Carol’ were, through performance capture film-making,” Green posted on Facebook. “The other actors and I performed the entire movie in skin-tight velcro suits in a massive empty volume with hundreds of cameras recording our digital information. And, since I’m a 37-year-old man playing a 9-year-old boy, it was always expected we’d get a real kid to re-record (my character) Milo’s dialogue, and that’s what we did.”

Green was pleased with the 11- year-old actor who gave voice to his character. “A great young actor named Seth Dusky recorded every line over my vocal performance, using it as a guide for his. He did a fantastic job.”

Green adds, “If we’ve done our job well, you won’t think about me at all when you watch- you’ll only see this young boy on the adventure of a lifetime.”
