Why Work With Walter Samuel?
"The Cash Machine" may not dazzle like those two earlier classics from Forsman & Bodenfors, but director Tomas Skoging's brisk comedy pacing really shines. The reworked Broadway tune, from producer Jonas Quant and singer Joseph Peter de Natale, will worm-wiggle into your ears and stay there all day, while Walter Samuel's earthy, laid-back portrayal of Bob rates 24 karats. (And he never speaks a word. Guess his money does the talking.)
"He made Bob into a charming, likable person with the perfect look," says Elfman. "A big part of the end result is thanks to him."
