Thanks, Terrye! I struggled with Wilder (this one’s the third iteration actually). I didn’t want to do him simply as Wonka because I enjoyed his work in so many other films as well (watched “The Lady in Red” countless times as a kid and only discovered my favorite turn of his — “Young Frankenstein” — later on as an adult). There are countless performances I love but ultimately opted to simply go with perhaps his most recognizable role.
So, your mention of that one particularly makes me happy. Obama’s too, but that’s his effect. ;)
