An Interview With The Part Elephant, Part Human Guy From ‘Jupiter Ascending’

Nesh 3

In Jupiter Ascending, we are briefly introduced to an extraterrestrial creature that looks like a cross between an elephant and a human. He doesn’t have an integral part in the film’s plot (the case can be made that no one does, really), but he does get a reaction from the audience any time he pops up on screen, either just standing there or flying a spaceship. His name is Nesh.

Nesh was nice enough to speak to Uproxx about his part in Jupiter Ascending, below is our conversation. (You’re welcome, nobody.)

Hello, Nesh. It’s nice to meet you.

Bleewwweeeee!

How did you get involved with Jupiter Ascending?

Bleewwweeeee!

Did you always want to work with The Wachowskis?

Bleewwweeeee!

Yes, Speed Racer is pretty.

Bleewwweeeee!

Is Babar nice?

Bleewwweeeee!

Did you enjoy working with Channing Tatum?

Bleewwweeeee!

Will you also be in Magic Mike XXL?

Bleewwweeeee!

Are you playing a stripper?

Bleewwweeeee!

I’m not sure people are ready to see that, Nesh.

Bleewwweeeee!

What special skills do you need as an elephant to fly a spaceship?

Bleewwweeeee!

Do elephant humanoids often get passed over as pilots?

Bleewwweeeee!

Well, maybe after people see you in Jupiter Ascending, that will all change?

Bleewwweeeee!

You do almost crash the ship, though.

Bleewwweeeee!

I’m not sure I would trust an elephant to pilot my next commercial flight, no.

Bleewwweeeee!

Perhaps I am feeding into stereotypes, but it just doesn’t seem normal.

Bleewwweeeee!

I, too, hope we can live in a world someday where an elephant pilot won’t be deemed unique.

Bleewwweeeee!

Baby steps.

Bleewwweeeee!

Speaking of, do you know the little elephant from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom?

Bleewwweeeee!

Can I feed you an apple?

Bleewwweeeee!

What did you think of the Stampy episode of The Simpsons?

Bleewwweeeee!

Did you see Mortdecai?

Bleewwweeeee!

I’m not sure what Johnny Depp is thinking either.

Bleewwweeeee!

If you could steal a smooch from anyone in Hollywood, who would it be?

Bleewwweeeee!

That’s all the time we have, Nesh. It was really nice to meet you.

You too.
