Smith plays Oscar in this animated film alongside Martin Scorsee, Renee Zellweger, and Angelina Jolie. Oscar is a small but ambitious fish who dreams of making something of himself, and when a dropped anchor accidentally kills Frankie, Oscar is suddenly celebrated as “the shark killer.” Oscar’s overnight fame attracts the attentions of Lola, a slinky dragon fish who woos Oscar away from his steady date.
I did about six months of aqua marine studies. I had a fish that I used as a model and I followed him around for a while and met his family and everything. There’s a real depth to the fish lifestyle that I studied.
