Bad For Good? Awkwafina Loves How ‘The Bad Guys’ Blurs Those Lines

From left: Mr. Shark (Craig Robinson), Mr. Piranha (Anthony Ramos), Mr. Snake (Marc Maron), Mr. Wolf (Sam Rockwell), and Ms. Tarantula (Awkwafina) in DreamWorks Animation’s The Bad Guys, directed by Pierre Perifel.

The Bad Guys is a new animated film based on a series of children’s books, about a notorious gang of animal hoodlums who go straight. Awkwafina provides the voice of a computer-hacking tarantula (she knows her way around the web… get it?), and she talked to us about the way the film doesn’t see the concepts of good and bad in a black-and-white way.
