TJ Miller from The Emoji Movie
TJ Miller from The Emoji Movie

Comedians feed off laughter, which is why voicing a character for “The Emoji Movie” proved so challenging for T.J. Miller.

“It’s a strange place, the voiceover booth, because you’re alone,” he tells Made in Hollywood reporter Patrick Stinson. “And although you would rather be doing scenes with the other people, the nature of the game is you’re by yourself and you’re making these jokes in a vacuum. Everyone else is behind the glass. So you’re trying to make them laugh but you don’t hear their laughter.”

The best he could hope for was seeing the crew laugh, like human emojis.
