‘G-Force’ premieres in L.A.

Disney's 3-D pic bows at the El Capitan Theatre

At Disney’s “G-Force” premiere Sunday at the El Capitan, thesps discussed taking on the unusual task of playing a guinea pig.

Zach Galifianakis noted the leap he made from “The Hangover” to lending voice in the animated 3-D pic.

“It’s kind of funny to be in a really raunchy R-rated movie where my character is not allowed around children and then I’m in a kid’s movie for Disney,” he said. “It’s really been weird.”

Bill Nighy saw working with guinea pigs as the obvious next step in his career.

“I’ve worked recently with lizards, I’ve been a rabbit, I’ve been a snake, and I’ve been a squid, so guinea pigs, it’s kind of … logical,” he said.

Jon Favreau, who voiced Hurleyin the film, had a more personal reason for taking on the role.

“I go to see these movies all the time. I have three kids,” he said. “These movies are important to me because I am forced to watch them. This film is not a parent-punisher.”
