peter sohn, director of pixar's partly cloudy

Check out this great interview with animator/story artist Peter Sohn of Pixar Animation Studios: Partly Cloudy, According to Sohn. He's worked on films like Finding Nemo and The Incredibles, and also provided the voice of Emile in Ratatouille. Next month, you'll see his work in the director's chair for the animated short Partly Cloudy, which runs in front of Pixar's feature film Up.

Sohn was also served as the partial inspiration for Russell, the Asian kid in Up. He's the worst Wilderness Scout in the world, who becomes the traveling companion of the old dude, and together, they're unlikely heroes of the movie. Take a look at Russell, then Sohn's photo, and you'll see a strong resemblance. Also check out this funny clip of Russell knocking on Carl's door. (Thanks, Dennis.)
