Rumor has it that people and their pets begin to look alike, so it's only fitting that in Frankenweenie, a film about a dog named Sparky, the voice actors resemble their animated characters.
Director Tim Burton praises his entire cast for embodying each of the roles. "Martin [Short] and Catherine [O'Hara] playing three parts each, they're all each one of them," he tells ET at the movie's premiere in Hollywood.
Atticus Shaffer laughs about his stop-motion alter-ego, Edgar "E" Gore, saying, "In every role I play, I always wear a striped T-shirt and what do you know? He wears a striped T-shirt."
Although Martin Short hopes, that out of his three characters, he's least like Mr. Burgemeister, playing the "creepy and weird" part was the most fun.
