'Flora & Ulysses' cast talks superhero squirrels and playing the villain

Flora & Ulysses is an unlikely superhero movie in that its superhero is neither man nor woman but squirrel, specifically one named Ulysses. The cast of the film (Ben Schwartz, Danny Pudi, and Alyson Hannigan) recently spoke with Yahoo Entertainment about what led them to this unique project.

Schwartz praised the performance of Matilda Lawler, who plays Flora. "The special part ... was to watch Matilda act in this thing," he said.

Pudi recalled a traumatic past experience he had with a squirrel. "After college, I did summer stock theater in Northern Wisconsin, and I woke up one day with a squirrel in my bed," he said. "It was terrifying!"
