Like many animated movies, DreamWorks Animation's Turbo features an amazing ensemble cast of voice actors such as Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Michael Peña, Samuel L. Jackson, Luis Guzmán and Snoop Lion, just to name a few. Then there's the incomparable Ken Jeong, who plays the cranky Korean woman Kim Ly in this DreamWorks Animation comedy, a role he also reprises in the Netflix TV series Turbo FAST. I recently had the chance to speak with the actor over the phone about the Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD release, where we discussed what drew him to this role and much more. Take a look at what he had to say.

First off, this is a hilarious character. What goes through your mind when they approached you to voice an old woman?

EXCLUSIVE: Luis Guzman Talks ‘Turbo’

The DreamWorks Animation comedy Turbo features one of the finest ensemble of voice talent in recent memory. The story follows a snail (Ryan Reynolds) who dreams of becoming fast and winning the Indianapolis 500. After a freak accident, Turbo gets his wish, blessed with lightning-fast speed that takes him all the way to Indy to chase down his dreams, with the help of a taco vendor named Tito (Michael Peña). I recently had the chance to speak with Luis Guzmán for the Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD release. The actor voices Angelo, Tito's brother and owner of a taco restaurant who disapproves of this whole adventure. Take a look at what he had to say below.

I was going through your very impressive resume, and there's not a whole lot of voice work on there. Is there something you always look for in a voice role?

Between playing the outlandish Jean-Ralphio on NBC's Parks and Recreation and Clyde Oberholt on House of Lies, the multi-talented Ben Schwartz somehow found time to lend his voice to a snail named Skidmark in Turbo, currently available on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD. Skidmark is a part of the race crew who helps Turbo (Ryan Reynolds), a snail who gets blessed with amazing speed after falling through a car engine, realize his dream of racing in the Indianapolis 500. I recently had the chance to speak with this actor about his voice recording process, future projects, and much more. Here's what he had to say.

I have to imagine, for an actor, it must be a dream to play a character named Skidmark.
