One of the many highlights from the trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s “Logan Lucky” is the hilarious voice Daniel Craig uses to play bank robber Joe Bang.
It turns out, to keep that high-pitched twang on the tip of his tongue, the James Bond star talked like that even off the set for the entire time he was working on the movie.
“He was doing the voice the whole time,” Riley Keough, who also stars in “Logan Lucky,” told Business Insider while she was promoting her upcoming movie “It Comes at Night” (opening in theatres on Friday). “If I saw him at the hotel after shooting he would be doing the voice. It was really funny.”
And Craig wasn’t the only comic relief. Between him and costars Channing Tatum and Adam Driver, the jokes were constant, according to Keough.
“When I start laughing I just can’t stop, so that was really hard because they were all so funny,” the actress said. “And they wouldn’t stop bantering between takes. It was ridiculous.”
In the movie, Tatum and Driver play brothers who hire Craig’s Joe Bang to help them pull off a heist during a NASCAR race.
So why did Craig insist on staying in character off the set?
“I think the thing is because he’s English he wanted to not lose the voice,” Keough said.
It seems like a good theory.
“Logan Lucky” opens in theatres August 18. Check out Craig’s unique voice in the trailer below:
