Thor: Ragnarok’s talented director Taika Waititi has become well-known for his fashion sense but his Korg “costume” on set of the Marvel movie is even more interesting to look at.
There was a lot to love about Ragnarok and while tiny warrior Miek was my favorite alien in the film, Korg comes in at a close second and that’s thanks to Waititi’s performance.
The director, who often has roles in his own films, picked up work on the Kronan warrior Korg which included motion-capture acting. Ragnarok set photographer Jasin Boland posted a behind-the-scenes look at Waititi’s mo-cap suit the other day and it’s pretty great:
I know I’d never make it as an actor because I would not have been able to keep a straight face looking at Waititi wearing a cardboard cut-out of Korg’s head as a hat. Of course Waititi, ever the social butterfly, replied.
He added, “Btw this @DonCheadle’s mocap suit. #warmachine #korgmachine.”
